Wanting a trail marker on my pages

    I have several things that are in a hierarchy.

    So one of them looks like this.

    Cancer
    -Nutrition
    --Daily
    --Recipes
    -Cat Scans

    What I want is a way when someone is on any of these pages they can navigate forward and back.

    So on the Cancer page, is there an automatic means of creating a link to Nutrition and Cat Scans. And once someone has chosen Nutrition, is there a automatic means of create a link back to Cancer and/or forward to Daily and Recipes?

    The blog I need help with is taxoltotempole.wordpress.com.

  2. Before we can answer, we'd need a link to the WordPress.com blog in question, starting with http:// to make it clickable.

    I think other sites sometimes have a crumb trail(???), something that looks like

    cancer->nutrition->daily eating

  5. We do not have "breadcrumb trails" on wordpress.com blogs. I for one would love it if this addition was made by theme staff.

    iNove has pseudo-breadcrumbs. See here for an example:

    ~~~ airodyssey - how do I activate it?

    For anyone else,other than just managing yourself, how do you manage the forward pages?

    Please read all of the following very carefully. In a nutshell free blogs from and being free hosted by wordpress.COM cannot be used to drive traffic to third-party sites by means of advertising and/or affiliate programs (see "Affiliate marketing blogs below for more clarity").

    No blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work created or services provided by anyone other than yourself is allowed. E-commerce transactions via shopping carts and the like cannot be conducted on wordpress.COM blogs.

    The only advertising exceptions are for high traffic blogs that qualify for and are accepted into the Ad Control program, and for extremely high traffic blogs that qualify and are accepted into the paid VIP hosting program.

    The only exceptions with regard to affiliate links are found here:

    Affiliate marketing blogs: Blogs with the primary purpose of driving traffic to affiliate programs and get-rich-quick schemes (“Make six figures from home!!”, “20 easy steps to top profits!!”, etc). This includes multi-level marketing (MLM) blogs and pyramid schemes. To be clear, people writing their own original book, movie or game reviews and linking them to Amazon, or people linking to their own products on Etsy do NOT fall into this category. http://en.wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/

    If you have any further questions please contact Staff directly using this link. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

    If you do require an ecommerce site, advertising and/or affiliate links on your blog, you can hire a web host and get a free software install from http://wordpress.org Read the information at the link below to learn about the differences between free hosted WordPress.com blogs and WordPress.org software installs for self hosting. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
