I personally only use the shorter code entered into any of the “text “widgets Go into Customizing/widgets/(now choose area you want it to be placed at)add a widget/text Enter [flexy_breadcrumb] into the text field UPDATE: looked like the best breadcrumb plugin, but today I noticed that it doesn’t work with my secondary menu properly. It shows Home and after that immediately the page I am on, skipping all the hierarchy like if it doesn’t exist. I use Simple Grid pro theme btw. That’s a pity, because I really liked it otherwise.
