Wondering how I can add a link to breadcrumbs for a post type when on a taxonomy archive. Basically, lets say I have a post type of Sermons. And then a taxonomy that is series. Right now, when the breadcrumbs are built, the post type isn't added as a level.
Now: Home > Sermon Series
Would Like: Home > Sermons > Sermon Series
Any ideas how to make that happen with any great ease? I've dug a little, but I'm unsure of how this might work.

have you tried modifying the breadcrumbs by using the code to modify them on this page: http://my.studiopress.com/snippets/breadcrumbs/ ?

Ozzy, yup. The issue is very specific to CPTs and it's not one I'm really seeing any answers to. Outside of modifying the home link, then I can't find an answer. It's a little surprising that this isn't built in.

i guess i'd need to see how you're registering your CPT's because i think i have them working the way you're wanting to on my site.

This is specific to a taxonomy archive. It works properly on a post in the post type, it's the taxonomy archive where its not showing the cpt in the url structure. Is the page you're linking to a taxonomy archive?

Be aware that Genesis 2.0 specifically handles breadcrumbs for taxonomy archives, so any filter you do now may need tweaking.
Since taxonomies can be applied to multiple post types, it's not easy to correctly work out which of those post types you want as the "parent" crumb. As such, in G 2.0 it's treated like a standard archive (since that's what a taxonomy archive is), albeit with a different filterable label and different filterable output.

yeah, it's not a taxonomy archive, just a post inside of a CPT.
after reading @GaryJ posts, it may be worth upgrading to 2.0 and seeing if it makes your life easier as whatever you do before may need to be modified after the upgrade anyways.

We're playing the waiting game on Genesis 2.0 right, for WordPress 3.6? So we have no specific time table for that release?

i think 2.0 is pretty stable at the moment.

Yes - 2.0beta2 is stable enough to release new sites on. There's a couple of small changes and fixes between beta 2 and what's currently committed, but not enough to stop you from going for it.

I'll take a peek at it. Always a little concerned as we're rolling this out as a client site, but I'll test it a bit. Thanks.
