Essential Breadcrumbs generates a schema marked up breadcrumb trail based on the URL. All you need to do is configure a couple of options and place one line of code into your page template where you would like the breadcrumbs to appear.
The breadcrumbs are generated based on the URL’s title. For example, if we take the URL www.example.com/why-choose-us/about-us/our-team, the breadcrumb will display the title of that page. If you wanted to customise what displayed in the breadcrumb to something other than the title, there is now an override box when editing a page called “Essential Breadcrumbs Title”. Whatever is entered into that input box, will be displayed instead of the title.
All parts of the URL must exist for the plugin to work.
For example, if we have the domain name www.example.com/why-choose-us/about-us/our-team, each of the following URLs must exist.
If you have trailing slashes at the end of your URLs e.g. www.example.com/why-choose-us/about-us/our-team/, that is fine, the plugin will still work.
