[Zen Cart] Breadcrumb error on category pages

Postby verdecoffeemark » Fri Aug 16, 2013 5:32 am

I have noticed that the breadcrumb navigator on our site is not working correctly, an offline site mirror not running magic seo works fine. I have searched through the forum but can't find anything, hopefully I haven't missed a solution to this!

The breadcrumb works correctly when viewing a product but when on a category page it only shows the current category and the home page, none of the categories in between.

our site is verdecoffee.com

Any help is appreciated.

Please make sure there is a following installation code in includes/application_top.php file:

Code: Select all

include(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'magic_seo_url.php');
$current_page_base = $current_page = $_GET['main_page'];
$page_directory = $code_page_directory = DIR_WS_MODULES . 'pages/' . $current_page_base;
include(DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'init_includes/init_category_path.php');


Also there were some updates released, see: http://www.inveostore.com/magic-seo-url ... #changelog and make sure you are using the latest version.

Sorry for the delay.

I have updated to 4.1.02 and can verify this by the header in .htaccess file and checked the code is present in the application_top.php file but am still getting the problem. Any other ideas?

Thanks.

Please post us exact step-by-step instructions how to reproduce it on your site (it works fine for me but maybe I did not understand the problem 100% correctly).

No problem, I didn't notice it for a while either.

Navigate to our website and select "coffee machines" on the left hand menu. The breadcrumbs correctly display "Home > Coffee Machines ". Now click on a sub category in coffee machines say "Espresso", the breadcrumb now displays "Home > Espresso" when it should be "Home > Coffee Machines > Espresso". If you then click on a product it that category the breadcrumbs work correctly again e.g. "Home > Coffee Machines > Espresso > Ruby 1 Group | Black".

It's not working for sub categories for some reason.
