Category Missing in Breadcrumbs?
If you use a multi-category taxonomy for your posts, you might face a similar problem: WordPress does not include subcategory into the breadcrumbs at all (Picture 1). It is not a theme-specific issue but a general behaviour of WordPress. To fix this, you can use one of these two plugins which will help you include subcategory in breadcrumbs:
- Yoast SEO Plugin – you can configure the breadcrumbs in SEO – Advanced section in your WordPress menu.
- Breadcrumb NavXT – we will use this plugin in the article below.
Both of them require inserting the breadcrumbs into your theme PHP file. There are some plugins out which do not require this step, I have tried them and none of them worked properly with my configuration.

Breadcrumbs for Pages and Taxonomies
You can configure many other options in Breadcrumb NavXT settings, you will surely figure it out. No more coding or styling knowledge should be needed to further adjust it.
