I want my breadcrumbs to look like this:
Home > Blog > Category
I also want Google to show the same rich snippets in their search results. Kind of like this:
Here comes the post title, blaa blaa blaa
http://www.mysite.com > Blog > Category
Here comes the meta description, blaa blaa blaa blaa.
Some sites do this, like WPBeginner. Just google "wpbeginner breadcrumbs" for example, and you'll see what I mean.
(I also want my permalinks to be http://www.mysite.com/blog/category/post-title, but that's easy to do in the settings.)
Now, I CAN do all this by using "Blog" as a parent category like this:
1) Create a new category called "Blog".
2) Put all your existing categories under "Blog" as child categories. "Blog" becomes the parent category for all your posts.
4) When choosing categories for your posts, NEVER check the "Blog" parent category, but ALWAYS do check one relevant child category. (If the "Blog" parent category is checked, it actually omits "Blog" from permalinks and breadcrumbs, so keep it unchecked.)
Using "Blog" as a parent category seems redundant, because I don't need parent categories otherwise.
Can I achieve the "Blog"-including breadcrumbs and rich snippets WITHOUT using "Blog" as a parent category?
I couldn't figure out how to add "Blog" after "Home" by looking at those code snippets. Can you help?
