Navigation Breadcrumbs ...recommendations?

I'm pretty happy with the "stock" Atahualpa horizontal, drop down Page Menu Bar, but would like to include a breadcrumbs feature -- probably to appear immediately below the Header and Menu Bar, above the Page Title on the pages.

I bumbled around in the WP Plugins bazaar and was quickly LOST and CONFUSED.... I could spend the next month testing all the plugins that offer breadcrumbs as a sort of "side feature" to more major menu modifications.

Has anyone already stumbled across what's best?

Tnx TTFN -- Jim

I had used Breadcrumb NavXT in the past and it worked well. Yoast Breadcrumbs is supposed to be good too but haven't used it

Yeah, those two plugins seemed to be the most mentioned in what I was seeing.

I tried to activate the "Breadcrumb NavXT" version with the "Administration interface" but that failed generating the error message:
"Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /home/content/H/T/F/HTF2004/html/wp/wp-content/plugins/breadcrumb-navxt/breadcrumb_navxt_admin.php on line 37"
I saw mention by the plugin author in their forum that this error was most definitely a php Ver 4 problem. I think GoDaddy is in the process of upgrading my hosting account to php Ver. 5+ so that problem might go away before too long.

I was successful in activating the "Breadcrumb NavXT - Core plugin" but am thinking this is a stripped down version more suited for coders who know what they're doing.

--------EDIT---------------------------------------------------

I can't figure out where I should be inserting the code. The instructions read:

"...Open the appropriate file for your theme (typically header.php). This can be done within WordPress’ administration panel through Presentation > Theme Editor or through your favorite text editor.

<div class="breadcrumb">
<?php
if(function_exists('bcn_display'))
{
bcn_display();
}
?>
</div>"
------------------------------------------------


If I don't have any joy I'll give the Yoast plugin a try and see how that goes.

I will report back here - Thanks -- TTFN -- Jim

UPdate:

Okay! I had immediate luck with the Yoast Breadcrumbs plugin. I inserted the required code in the index.php file immediately following

<?php get_header(); ?>

I'm wondering if prefacing the breadcrumbs with "You are here:" is necessary in this day and age.

I'm also wondering if I can figure out how to do some CSS styling of the breadcrumbs.

Time for bed! Happy weekend! Jim
