There are only a small handful of CMS libraries which offer support for breadcrumbs. This is a trail of links you’ll notice above the body content which leads back to the various categories and top-tier pages related to your post. Also it displays the hierarchical formatting between parent pages and sub-pages.
In this article I want to offer a few different solutions for implementing breadcrumbs in Wordpress. The simplest method is to install a custom plugin which will automatically include these bits of HTML in your theme. Breadcrumbs are also easy to customize on your own, so it all depends on your comfort level when working within Wordpress. Along with these ideas I’ve included some related links you may skim and other helpful breadcrumb tutorials.
How many times have you been writing a page or blog post and run into the nuisance of coding out a custom HTML table. It doesn’t happen all too often, but when you don’t have prebuilt styles it feels like a hindrance towards building your content further. This may be corrected by styling your own custom tables ready in advance for your posts.
But I feel there are other solutions which offer much more versatility. Most notably the WP plugin TablePress has gained a lot of attention over the recent months. In this article I would like to explain how we can go about configuring this plugin and getting code ready for your webpage. The settings are not too complex, although there are many options and advanced features for power users who are always finding themselves stuck working with tables.
