I have created several custom post types, and custom taxonomies to manage my large art portfolio. All of this is working very well. There is a post type for "art" and "design" as well as custom taxonomies for stuff like "color"

I want to add breadcrumbs that will show the taxonomy the user clicked on to arrive at a particular image. For example:

from the achive-art.php someone clicks on the custom taxonomy "color" and then the classification of purple they are taken to a taxonomy-color.php page that lists the results. When they click a thumbnail to see the full post I would like to see a breadcrumb that reads:

art > purple > title of the post

I've tried a ton of plug-ins but they only work with one taxonomy or will show:

art > title of the post.

I'm still kind of new to wordpress and trying to wrap my head around everything.

The easiest way you can remember which taxonomy the user arrived through to a certain post is by storing it in a cookie. This is essentially what the Smarter Navigation plugin does, except it can handle all archives, not just taxonomy archives.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! this plug in does what I wanted originally, but I couldn't find a way to do it so I thought I'd have to settle for breadcrumbs. I understand the concept of storing as cookie but an too new to programing to actually do it. But again, I like this sooooo much better. Thanks! –  ryan russell Dec 20 '11 at 3:36
