Progress is good - now have custom theme to which I'm making changes.
Wanted to remove the 'Home' link, and found info on this forum and in the codex.
However, it's leaving a blank line ( <br> ) where Home used to be, and I can't work out where it's being generated. See images for view from Chrome's Inspect, and source (from Firefox).
Code line changed to:
The way the arguments work is they either exist in your template function in their default state or your chosen state, or they don't exist in the template function meaning they will work at their default state.
So by removing the homeLink argument it will still exist in the function, and will work in it's default state (site URL). You've then removed the label from the end meaning it has nothing to display resulting in the break you're seeing.
It should actually look more like this:
sp_BreadCrumbs('tagClass=spLeft spBreadCrumbs&tree=1&homeLink=', __sp('Home'));
By having nothing after the equals after homeLink it sees it as nothing and therefor has nothing to display.
Hope that helps!
I guess it must be adding a line break when it processes the breadcrumb list (in sp-common-view-functions.php).
However, the 'flat' breadscrumb list (option 0) doesn't process the home link at all when the code is changed ... there's no gap or space where Home would have been.
Am I stuck with that line-break?
Well on one hand I'm glad you've got it fixed to a standard you're happy with, but on the other I'm not 100% sure it's supposed to keep a break where 'home' was. It's entirely possible that due to the way the breadcrumb tree displays that the break is a necessity, it's certainly not too ugly, but we will have to wait for Andy or Steve to confirm this.
