Use Widget Visibility

It allows you to set conditions to show or hide your widgets based on whether a specific page, category, tag, author or archive is displayed. It is an incredible useful and small feature you will never want to miss again.

Template Tag Usage (for developers)

This plugin works with all of our themes without any need to edit the code. That means you just have to activate it and the breadcrumbs are displayed.

However, in case you want to use this plugin with themes from other developers you can use the themezee_breadcrumbs() template tag in your theme. This function will display the breadcrumb navigation for the current active site anywhere you want.

It is highly recommended to use a function_exists() wrapper to avoid breaking the theme template file if the plugin is not activated:

<?php if ( function_exists( 'themezee_breadcrumbs' ) ) themezee_breadcrumbs(); ?>
