Everything you need to get started with Blocksy Theme and Companion


Quick Look

Blocksy offers a Breadcrumbs feature to aid in the navigation on your website. It supports Pages, Posts and WooCommerce Products, and even CPTs!

Show or Hide the Breadcrumbs

To show or hide the Breadcrumbs, you will need to navigate to the Section you want -> Title -> Breadcrumbs. Click the little eye icon to toggle Breadcrumbs visibility.

Where to enable the breadcrumbs system for a single post

[ blocksy_breadcrumbs ]

If the default breadcrumbs placement configuration isn’t suitable for you, we’ve implemented the [ blocksy_breadcrumbs ] shortcode that will let you add the breadcrumbs system anywhere you’d like. Just insert it onto your page and be good to go.

Integration with Third Party Providers

Even though Blocksy has its own breadcrumbs system, it also plays nice and integrates seamlessly with third party providers. Supported providers such as RankMath, Yoast, SEOPress or Breadcrumb NavXT.

Selecting the breadcrumbs provider

If Blocksy detects one of these plugins, it will offer it as a provider under the General -> Breadcrumbs pane.

Picking the Primary Taxonomy: Integration with SEO plugins

Sometimes one of the posts may have two or more categories. And you may need to display one specific category out of all in the Breadcrumbs for SEO purposes.

To do that, open the post inside the Gutenberg editor and navigate to the Post tab. Under the Categories section, depending on the SEO plugin of your choice, you should find an option to select the primary category to be used on the front end.

Selecting the primary taxonomy using an SEO plugin in the category tree

Like in the example from above, some SEO plugins such as Yoast and RankMath, might let you select the primary taxonomy term for a specific post — in case you’ve selected multiple taxonomy terms. This comes in really handy when you want to program your breadcrumbs in a certain way and organise things to your needs.

In some cases, this option might not appear out of the box and you might need to reconfigure the SEO plugin that you’ve chosen. Their documentation articles should definitely help you out, as it is a matter of how each plugin provider has coded their options.
