Mismatching breadcrumbs with comment shortcode

Reported by: undyingearth Owned by:
Milestone: 2.3 Priority: low
Severity: minor Version: 2.1
Component: API - Shortcodes Keywords:


VERSION: I'm running a clean WordPress 3.4.2 installation with bbPress 2.1.2 and BuddyPress 1.6.1. However, the same issue is being replicated on (as far as I can tell) all bbPress installations, including the BuddyPress test environment (see here and here).

BUG REPORT: When using the forum shortcode to replace comments in a post, the breadcrumbs in posts are not consistent with the breadcrumbs in the actual topics. In other words, when viewing the shortcode output in a post (see here for example) then the breadcrumb displays as Home > Forums Root > Topic - whilst viewing the same topic in the actual forum (see here) displays the breadcrumb as Home > Forums Root > Forum > Topic

This makes navigating by breadcrumbs really tricky for the user.

Is there any way to either maintain consistency between the breadcrumbs or, alternatively, hide the breadcrumbs from the posts but continue to display them in the forums?

Many thanks!

This could use more refinement. Moving to Future Release for ongoing work.

I've now removed the in-post breadcrumbs on my site (stupidly, I can't remember exactly how I did this now. I think I edited the templates. But I've left the breadcrumbs in place for the forum). Basically, this means my site no longer displays the problem - but it's still an issue in vanilla bbPress and it's still visible in the BuddyPress test environment.
