Breadcrumb navigation is known for providing a great user experience because of the way in which it allows your users to essentially retrace their steps in terms of website navigation. If you’re not familiar with the term, breadcrumbs are the links that usually appear at the top of a piece of content, reminding you how you navigated to the page you’re on, and giving you the option to go back to where you came from if that’s what you want. So if you’re on restaurant’s site and you go from the home page, to the menu page, to the breakfast page, your breadcrumbs would probably follow this trail: home > menu > breakfast. This way, you know how you got to the page you’re on, but you can also easily go back if you decide you’d like to revisit the home page or the menu. Breadcrumb navigation is a great tool for enhancing user experience and is extremely user friendly.
With the Breadcrumb NavXT plugin, you can easily add breadcrumbs to any of the pages on your WordPress site.
The plugin easily and quickly generates locational breadcrumb trails for your WordPress site. The plugin is not only easy to use, but it’s highly customizable. The plugin is built to suit the needs of just about any type of WordPress site out there. You have total control over the breadcrumb navigation — you can choose to use the default settings for your breadcrumb navigation, or you can configure it to comply with the individual needs of your site using the settings page in your dashboard. It’s also compatible with many other popular WordPress plugins, like BuddyPress and bbPress. It also supports WordPress’s language packs and can be translated into another language, if you’d rather not work in English.
