    Is it possible to disable breadcrumbs? If so how?

    Thanks

    Sure, if you are using a child theme you can add the following line to your functions.php:

    remove_theme_support( ‘livingos_breadcrumbs’ );

    Download the Dark child theme for example of how to create a child theme and use functions like this to enable/disable other features.

    Or you can just comment out, or delete the line in the main theme’s function.php:

    add_theme_support( ‘livingos_breadcrumbs’ );

    Of course any edits you make to a parent theme would be lost when you update the theme, so in the long term is worth creating a child theme if you plan other customisation.

    This is a new term for me – would it be an imposition for a link a/o description as to the particulars of this word?

    Breadcrumbs is the navigation links above the content of most pages/posts “Home/something/something”. Breadcrumbs, because of the fairy tale – you follow the breadcrumbs back from where you came!

    Ah – so what is the intent of disabling this feature then?

    Hi Fionavar – it’s simply about the aesthetics. The bread crumb is very close to the page/post title (below) and relatively to the main navigation bar (above).

    Sorry themewaver but cannot find the “add_theme_support( ‘livingos_breadcrumbs’ );” line you mentioned in functions.php? Am I missing something or looking in the wrong place? I am looking at functions.php available through the editor in the dashboard.

    There are more than one files called fucntions.php in the theme. You need the one in the theme’s root folder. Though it is best to edit in notepad or similar on your PC/mac and then upload. The dashboard editor is not great.

    Also now see http://themeloom.com/support/framework-codex/developers/ which we are trying to flesh out a bit more with stuff like this.
