I have developed the breadcrumb plugin for q2a which helps in Better SEO and easy navigation . That supports all q2a pages and can be translated into all supported languages . 

It is available for free now . Download it here

What is a breadcrumb in websites ?

A “breadcrumb” is a type of secondary navigation scheme that reveals the user’s location in a website or Web application.

Why We Need a Breadcrumb Plugin for a QA WebSite - 

The most improtant thing is Better SEO

According to SEO Experts , if you are maintainning a huge website then you should take care of making it better organized and Easy navigation .

No doubt the QA sites are really big having 500+ pages of questions (usually almost all) and well structured with Categories and Tags . And This breadcrumb plugin will give you better accessibility and Navigation for your website . 

From a search engine point of view; Google actually displays the breadcrumbs in the search results giving you more links in each search listing, which is a positive thing. It Provides another mechanism to highlight important keywords for the search engines to note in your navigation.

Also it adds content relevancy to your pages and adds on-page SEO emphasis that highlights specific anchor text rich linking to internal pages.

To sum up, these are the features of the breadcrumb plugin :

  • Supports all q2a pages , plugin pages and also all costum pages with beatiful icons 
  • Option to choose weather to display the home link or not 
  • Option to truncate the Question title 
  • Option to enable / disable the last elemet link 
  • Option to enable / disable the icons 
  • CSS customization
  • Very simple installation:
  1. Copy the plugin folder in the qa-plugin folder
  2. Go to Admin -> Plugins section -> Choose required options and click save 
  3. Go to Admin -> Layout -> Breadcrumbs - add widget -> then add the widget to a proper position 
  • Full internationalization support: Every piece of text the plugin uses can be translated to other language . 

How much it costs you ??

Thankyou foir the fixes

I wonder what this option does as the description seems to be missing msomething.

I mean what are we supposed to put in that textbox?



also in mobile view turns to bullet points

the text box is the truncate length buddy . Suppose your Question title is too long .
Eg : "How to push code to GitHub and How do I merge them using Command Line tool blah blah" . And it will break the layout if it is too large . If you make the truncate length is 30(suppose) then the title will come like this .
Result title - "How to push code to GitHub..."

Hope this helps
I think I need to make the leble bit more descriptive . :P
For the mobile view , some resets might be there in the CSS . I did the CSS file to match the default Snow theme . You can edit the CSS file inside the plugin code to match you needs .
I will do for this new theme after its release (Noted).
Thanks for the help in finding bugs .
Thank you, some suggesting css would be nice to solve that mobile issue temporary
