Adding breadcrumb navigation for Sparkling WordPress theme

I’ve found a couple of references around the net to adding breadcrumb navigation to WP themes that do not have it built in. But I am not a WP guru and I am not sure where I would add that code in general on a WP theme, much less specifically to Sparkling (free).

Would appreciate any direction anyone could provide.

You can use WordPress SEO plugin and its built in Breadcrumbs functionality. Here you can read more about this plugin.

The basic usage of these breadcrumbs are by adding this code (when plugin is installed, activated and configured):

<?php if ( function_exists('yoast_breadcrumb') ) {
yoast_breadcrumb('<p id="breadcrumbs">','</p>');
} ?>

It really depends when and how you can them to be displayed. I haven’t tried them on this theme, so there might be some extra CSS styling required to make them look better. If so, just make sure that you have them installed on your website and post your website URL, so I can provide some basic styling for you.

I think the right place to add Breadcrumbs for this theme would be at the very end of header.php file but you need to test to see what comes out of it.

Hi Aigars,

Love your theme!

I have installed breadcrumbs, right at the very end of header.php
Could you please provide me with some basic styling for breadcrumbs?
And how to hide it from the homepage?
