Since version 1.3.0, Slim SEO added the breadcrumbs support via the
[slim_seo_breadcrumbs] shortcode. Using the shortcode, you can output the breadcrumb trail on your WordPress website easily.
Slim SEO supports
aria-* for breadcrumbs for better accessibility.
[slim_seo_breadcrumbs] shortcode has the following attributes (all are optional):
separator: The separator between breadcrumb items. Default
display_current: Whether or not display the current page. Default
taxonomy: The taxonomy that you want to output in the breadcrumb trail when you’re on a single post (or post type). Default
label_home: Label for home item. Default
label_search: Label for search results page. Default
Search Results for “%s”.
label_404: Label for 404 page. Default
Page not found.
To make it easier to style breadcrumbs, the plugin uses some CSS classes:
breadcrumbs: For the wrapper of the breadcrumbs.
- Each breadcrumb item has a class
- The first and the last breadcrumb item has a class
breadcrumb--lastcorrespondingly. It’s very useful when you want to style the “Home” with icon or something similar.
- Separator has a class
Using these class, you’re able to style every detail of the breadcrumb trail.
