I have an issue with breadcrumbs working with bbpress forums on my website. I have tried a few different ways to overcome this & I think a simple solution would be something which states if the post type = forum then the breadcrumbs for that page should be Home > forum.

I have tried to integrate this within my breadcrumb functions php snippet with no joy, can anyone give me a pointer of what im doing wrong?

    <?php
function the_breadcrumb() {
    global $post;
    $post_type = $post->post_type;
    echo '<ul id="breadcrumbs">';
    if (!is_home()) {
        echo '<li><a href="';
        echo get_option('home');
        echo '">';
        echo '<i class="ts-awesome-home" style="font-size:14px;letter-spacing: 2px;"></i> Home';
        echo '</a></li><li class="separator"> / </li>';
        if (is_category() || is_single()) {
            echo '<li>';
            the_category(' </li><li class="separator"> / </li><li> ');
            if (is_single()) {
                echo '</li><li class="separator"> / </li><li>';
                the_title();
                echo '</li>';
            }
        } elseif (is_page()) {
            if($post->post_parent){
                $anc = get_post_ancestors( $post->ID );
                $title = get_the_title();
                foreach ( $anc as $ancestor ) {
                    $output = '<li><a href="'.get_permalink($ancestor).'" title="'.get_the_title($ancestor).'">'.get_the_title($ancestor).'</a></li> <li class="separator">/</li>'.$output;
                }
                echo $output;
                echo '<span title="'.$title.'"> '.$title.'</span>';
            } else {
                echo '<li><span> '.get_the_title().'</span></li>';
            }
        }
    }
    elseif (is_tag()) {single_tag_title();}
    elseif (is_day()) {echo"<li>Archive for "; the_time('F jS, Y'); echo'</li>';}
    elseif (is_month()) {echo"<li>Archive for "; the_time('F, Y'); echo'</li>';}
    elseif (is_year()) {echo"<li>Archive for "; the_time('Y'); echo'</li>';}
    elseif (is_author()) {echo"<li>Author Archive"; echo'</li>';}
    elseif (isset($_GET['paged']) && !empty($_GET['paged'])) {echo "<li>Blog Archives"; echo'</li>';}
    elseif (is_search()) {echo"<li>Search Results"; echo'</li>';}
    elseif (is_post_type('forum') && is_post_type('post') && is_post_type('topic') && is_post_type('reply')){
echo"<li>FORUM BREADCRUMBS"; echo'</li>';
}
    echo '</ul>';
}
?>

Thank you

  • I'm not sure what you want, but shouldn't you use an OR instead of AND in the is_post_type evaluation? – Tomás Cot Sep 3 '14 at 12:13

I managed to fix this by:

<?php
function the_breadcrumb() {
    global $post;
    $post_type = $post->post_type;
    echo '<ul id="breadcrumbs">';
    if(get_post_type() == 'forum' OR get_post_type() == 'topic' OR get_post_type() == 'reply') {

      echo '<li><a href="';
        echo get_option('home');
        echo '">';
        echo '<i class="ts-awesome-home" style="font-size:14px;letter-spacing: 2px;"></i> Home';
        echo '</a></li><li class="separator"> / </li>';
        echo '<a href="https://link">Forum</a>';
        echo ' &nbsp;/&nbsp; ';
        echo  the_title();

    }

    elseif (!is_home()) {
        echo '<li><a href="';
        echo get_option('home');
        echo '">';
        echo '<i class="ts-awesome-home" style="font-size:14px;letter-spacing: 2px;"></i> Home';
        echo '</a></li><li class="separator"> / </li>';
        if (is_category() || is_single()) {
            echo '<li>';
            the_category(' </li><li class="separator"> / </li><li> ');
            if (is_single()) {
                echo '</li><li class="separator"> / </li><li>';
                the_title();
                echo '</li>';
            }
        } 

        elseif (is_page()) {
            if($post->post_parent){
                $anc = get_post_ancestors( $post->ID );
                $title = get_the_title();
                foreach ( $anc as $ancestor ) {
                    $output = '<li><a href="'.get_permalink($ancestor).'" title="'.get_the_title($ancestor).'">'.get_the_title($ancestor).'</a></li> <li class="separator">/</li>'.$output;
                }
                echo $output;
                echo '<span title="'.$title.'"> '.$title.'</span>';
            } else {
                echo '<li><span> '.get_the_title().'</span></li>';
            }
        }

    }

}

?>
