Now its time to take advantage of this wonderful feature; and we will label our breadcrumbs to describe it's type to Google for better understanding and to presenting your site better in Google search result.

IE: your threads and catagory links will look like this in microdata,...

/forum/forums....

Dead 404's, not good.

instead use this,... href="{vb:raw vboptions.bburl}/{vb:raw nav_url}"


To make this mod work out of the box, use this code replacement which requires no editing to work on your forum no matter the url or sub directory location...

I tried it on my vb4, but it didn't work even with the test tool by google. I guess we need a fix for this. Thanks

Testing on our site - looks good so far - thanks.

For reference, the original code that belongs in -> Navbar_Link is as follows (in case anyone needs to revert back) - for vB4.2.2 pl.1

Just in case that someone wants to use lower breadcrumb (mod made by Lynne), this would cause problem with this template modification, as there would be two breadcrumbs and thus double information.

So I hide lower breadcrumb from guests (and Google and other search engines). All members can see and benefit from lower breadcrumb and they use site more actively.

Anyway, if someone want to use this two together, here's the link to modified Lynne's mod: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...&postcount=234
