So why not implement a breadcrumb for the blogger blogs. For those who don't know what a breadcrumb is, here is a little definition from wikipedia.

Breadcrumbs or breadcrumb trail is a navigation aid used in user interfaces. It gives users a way to keep track of their location within programs or documents.

The trails like Home >> Label >> Post Name are the breadcrumbs.

<b:include data='top' name='status-message'/>


Now replace that with


<b:include data='top' name='status-message'/>

<b:include data='posts' name='breadcrumb'/>


Now find


<b:includable id='main' var='top'>


and replace it with


<b:includable id='breadcrumb' var='posts'>

<b:if cond='data:blog.homepageUrl == data:blog.url'>

<!-- No breadcrumb on home page -->

<b:else/>

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>

<!-- breadcrumb for the post page -->

<p class='breadcrumbs'>

<span class='post-labels'>

<a expr:href='data:blog.homepageUrl' rel='tag'>Home</a>

<b:loop values='data:posts' var='post'>

<b:if cond='data:post.labels'>

<b:loop values='data:post.labels' var='label'>

<b:if cond='data:label.isLast == "true"'> »

</b:if>

</b:loop>

<b:else/>

</b:if>

» <span><data:post.title/></span>

</b:loop>

</span>

<!-- breadcrumb for the label archive page and search pages.. -->

<p class='breadcrumbs'>

<span class='post-labels'>

<b:else/>

<a expr:href='data:blog.homepageUrl'>Home</a> » Posts filed under <data:blog.pageName/>

</b:if>

</span>
