Adding breadcrumbs

Adding the first block of code to your functions.php will setup everything for your breadcrumbs. Add the second section of code in the location you wish to have your breadcrumbs displayed.


function dimox_breadcrumbs() {
 
  $delimiter = '»';
  $name = 'Home'; //text for the 'Home' link
  $currentBefore = '<span class="current">';
  $currentAfter = '</span>';
