I've been looking everywhere for the perfect breadcrumbs plugin for ages. Either they were all wrong or screwed up my installation when they updated. This one is perfect, and I couldn't be happier with it. All I suggest is that in your display instructions, you post the full code to add to your .php files. You say that all you have to do is add the [flexy_breadcrumb] short code. That's true if you add it within the editor, but it took me awhile to figure out that to add it to the file itself, you have to add it in this way: <?php echo do_shortcode( '[flexy_breadcrumb]' ); ?> This little bit of detail won't be self-evident to some people, so I think you should let them know that this is how you add it. Otherwise, job well done!

After Using yoast for years (2013-2020) finally made the move and I am very happy with the results ! After wasting hours on Parent category> Child category> issue of yoast which is breaking the hierarchy , tried Navxt on recommendation of WP-beginner, it was breaking so many things. Then enter Flexy Breadcrumb, works like a charm ,super clean, allows customization and solved the issues in every way. Hope more people will see it as a better alternative and use it, and updated regularly too ! Good luck and thank you for a wonderful plugin.

Wonderful. So far it seems like a tremendous plugin, simple and practical. I hope I don't do something negative later. But definitely, so far it is going very well.
