Original Code

Change these two code pieces to fix the main site breadcrumb.
%title% and %link%

<span property="itemListElement" typeof="ListItem"><a property="item" typeof="WebPage" title="Go to %title%." href="%link%" class="%type%" bcn-aria-current><span property="name">%htitle%</span></a><meta property="position" content="%position%"></span>

Updated Code

Change to the custom title: %title% = Washington State University (%title% is in two places in the code.)
Change to the custom link: %link% =

<span property="itemListElement" typeof="ListItem"><a property="item" typeof="WebPage" title="Go to Washington State University." href="" class="%type%" bcn-aria-current><span property="name">Washington State University</span></a><meta property="position" content="%position%"></span>


Breadcrumb NavXT has a block (Breadcrumb Trail) available under Widget. It will display as it is set in Plugin Settings.


Suggested Usage

There may be instances where you want to add the widget.

Hero Banner with or without Heading Banner

The breadcrumb will not appear with a Hero Banner at the top of the page and the page title in the banner or as a Heading block (H1) below the hero banner. Add in the Breadcrumb Trail block between the hero banner and the heading block.

If using the Page Title block after the Hero Banner the breadcrumb will display as expected without needing the breadcrumb block.
