Add Breadcrumbs in Thesis Theme for SEO Friendly Navigation

We already posted more than 100+ thesis theme tutorials with videos.  Now, I am going to discuss how to add breadcrumbs in thesis theme.

Breadcrumb is very useful for WordPress SEO purpose. More SEO people says that breadcrumb is one of the parts of WordPress SEO. So I am posting this topic for WorPress thesis users.

Thesis is the best WordPress SEO theme. By adding the thesis theme, you will surely get a lot of traffic from Google. So if you not thesis user yet, don’t wait and get thesis theme now and increase traffic to your blog.

Going back to breadcrumb, you can work on this process in two simple steps:

Step 1:

Copy and paste the following code to your thesis custom_function.php file.

function breadcrumbs_no_front_page() {
if (is_front_page());
else {
global $post;
<div id="breadcrumbs">
<a href="/">Home</a> &gt; <?php the_category(' '); ?> &gt; <?php the_title(); ?>

add_action('thesis_hook_before_content', 'breadcrumbs_no_front_page');

Step 2:

Copy and paste the following code to your thesis custom.css file.

.custom #content_area #breadcrumbs {
    float: left;
    font-size: 11px;
    font-weight: normal;
    line-height: 25px;
    width: 94.9%;
    border:1px solid #ddd;
