    Could anyone let me know how to change the breadcrumbs for my about page?

    The title on my about page is “Mom Goes Online: work from home home and make money online”.  As a consequence, the breadcrumbs currently display:”You are here: Home ‣ Mom Goes Online: work from home and make money online”

    I would like it to keep the title I have, but change the breadcrumbs to: “You are here: Home ‣ About”

    I looked on Yoast’s website (assuming he uses his WordPress SEO plugin for his own breadcrumbs), and he has what I want: a breadcrumb path that is different than his page title:  Yoast’s about page.

    Yoast’s breadcrumb path: “Home > Team Yoast”

    Yoast’s page title: “YOast: making websites work!”

    Thank you for any suggestions!!!

    @ susan – I looked at the link you provided, but got the impression the code snippet changes the breadcrumb setting on all pages?  Or am I reading this wrongly?

    I only want to change the setting for the about page (for all other pages, I want the page title to continue to be in the breadcrumb).

    The top snippet was to amend the home breadcrumb link. I believe you can probably play with that to change another page.

    @susan – thank you.  Since I have never done any html coding, I am hoping someone will be kind enough to tell me what line to add where – I fear that me playing with code will end up in broken code  :)

    Laura – I don’t use breadcrumbs on my site, so haven’t played with them, but just want to offer reassurance – everyone at some point around here has broken their site – I think it’s how you learn :) – I always recommend making a copy of your file before you make any changes, so that you will have a pre-change file to update as need be.
