Breadcrumbs are the navigation links that are normally at the top of a page above the post tile that users can click to visit different sections of your site. If you visit an article on WPBeginner we have our breadcrumbs at the top of our pages.

For the first method we will be using the Breadcrumb NavXT plugin that you can find below:

Once you install and activate the plugin you can customize the plugin’s settings under Settings, Breadcrumb NavXT in your wp-admin area. This includes any page-specific templates that you may want to use. Once you set up the templates you can activate them under Appearance, Customize, and under your Breadcrumb area in the customizer.

If you would prefer a different tool then you could use Yoast SEO which can be downloaded using the link below:

You can find the settings for the Breadcrumbs area under SEO, Search Appearance, then click the Breadcrumbs tab in the settings area. That will allow you to customize the different methods of display for your breadcrumbs and don’t forget to save your changes on this page.

For the breadcrumbs to appear, you will want to go under Appearance, Customize, and select Breadcrumbs to enable them.
