This plugin helps you to embed a simple hierarchical navigation menu and breadcrumbs into your site. Simply place the corresponding widgets in your sidebars and you’re all set. It’s also possible to configure the widgets to manipulate the appearance of the menu or the breadcrumbs.

Hierarchical Navigation menu widget
Drag the Hierarchical Navigation widget into a sidebar and change the configuration as you see fit. To give you a better understanding of the different options the following table lists their purpose:
|The title that appears above the menu; e.g. Pages or Navigation.
|Instead of showing all the pages starting from the root (
id is 0) you can specify an ID here which will be used as the root of the menu, i.e. showing just the specified sub tree of your page hierarchy.
|Sets the maximum depth of the menu hierarchy.
|Excludes the IDs – comma separated list – from the navigation hierarchy.
|These tags will be placed around the title. Read more about
title_li on this page.
As with the hierarchical navigation menu widget you can just place this widget into a sidebar and adjust the options. Here’s an overview of the settings:
|The text that appears in front of the breadcrumbs, e.g. You are here.
|This will be placed between the breadcrumbs.
|In case your homepage displays an overview of your posts, we’ll use this text in front of the breadcrumbs.
