Create category breadcrumbs from a group and list entries

Breadcrumbs from categories and Entries

The LBA category leaves lister outputs the leaves (categories without any children) of a given category group.
Available tags are:
{cat_id}: the id of the category leaf. Useful to pull the entries that are associated with this category
{cat_name}: the name of the category in Expression Engine
{parent_id}: the id of the parent category
{cat_breadcrumbs}: this tag issues a breadcrumb of the category.

Parameters for the tag are:
group_id: the category group you’d like to extract leaves from. This parameter is compulsory.
bread_crumb_separato: the string that you would like to use to separate the different breadcrumbs.

When outputting the breadcrumbs, the plugin encases each breadcrumb in a tag. Also, the leftmost breadcrumb is also assigned a class of “first” and the rightmost one a class of “last”, which allow you to format them easily using CSS. The breadcrumb separators are encased in a tag, again allowing easy formatting.

If you would like to use this plugin to output the entries of the category, make sure you add the Expression Engine “parse=‘inward’” tag. All the channel:entries parameters and tags will then be available.

{exp:lba_catleaves group_id=“1” bread_crumb_separator=”**” parse=“inward”}

{exp:lba_catleaves group_id=“1” bread_crumb_separator=”**” parse=“inward”}
     {exp:channel:entries category=”{cat_id}” dynamic=“no”}
