Plugin Information

Breadcrumb NavXT, the successor to the popular WordPress plugin Breadcrumb Navigation XT, was written from the ground up to be better than its ancestor. This plugin generates locational breadcrumb trails for your WordPress powered blog or website. These breadcrumb trails are highly customizable to suit the needs of just about any website running WordPress. The Administrative interface makes setting options easy, while a direct class access is available for theme developers and more adventurous users.

Great Plugin! Great Support!

By Turk (turk) on November 12, 2022

This is a great plugin. Has to be the absolute best for Breadcrumbs in your blog. @mtekk is helping me with my issue with Categories displaying as Tags. I was pretty nervous about bringing a website that was offline since 2016 back online and he handled me with professionalism that I guess I wasn't expecting. I'm slowly trying to catch up with all the changes to Wordpress and having Him handle things like this makes it a lot easier.

simple yet very convenient and useful

A straightforward plugin to add breadcrumbs with thoughtful options for posts, pages, and even custom content types. Highly recommend this.

Need common template for all post types.

1. It would be nice if it was possible edit common template for all post types at once. 2. It would be nice if it was possible to export/import settings.

I love this plugin. Not sure if all end-users know they are there, but I love breadcrumbs and use them all the time. If for nothing more than as a site Administrator.

Very nice and helpful

It does not work. Don't see any option or shortcode anywhere in any description to enable this

This is the gold standard for breadcrumbs

By gecko_guy on March 22, 2021

All of the popular SEO plugins have their version, and there are many other choices in the repo that appear to be made to "look nice", but if you're serious about your website and SEO, then NavXT is arguably the best choice you can make for implementing breadcrumbs. No other solution even comes close in my opinion, and I wouldn't use anything else :)
