    Hello guys,
    can see the breadcrumbs setting tab in the RM setting tab (in sensative date).

    the site is under development and i ask them to use the breadcrumbs from RM.

    could you please check and tell me what to do to fix that, it seems like breadcrumbs and images are not visible

  • Hello,

    Thank you for reaching out to support.

    Please note that some options are only available when you enable the Advanced Mode in Rank Math. We give you an option to choose between the two during the setup wizard and you must have chosen to use the Easy Mode.

    You can switch to the Advanced Mode from the top-right corner at WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Dashboard

    Here is a screenshot for reference:

    You can use Breadcrumbs from Rank Math by going to WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > General Settings > Breadcrumbs. Simply enable breadcrumbs, change the options as per your preference and save the changes.

    Then, grab the code and paste it in your theme’s single.php and page.php files (ideally)

    If you are unsure about this step, please talk to your theme provider and ask them where the breadcrumbs code should be placed. Even if you use a free theme, the support should be able to help you with the ideal placement of the breadcrumbs code. For your reference, here is the breadcrumbs code used to insert Rank Math’s breadcrumbs:

    <?php if (function_exists('rank_math_the_breadcrumbs')) rank_math_the_breadcrumbs(); ?>

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    Hello Guys,

    there was no way to activate the advanced mode,
    tried to switch from the screen dashboard, didn’t work always reverse to easy mode.
    tried to setup wizard again, didn’t work
    removed the app and install it again, didn’t work as well.

    any tips on how to activate the advanced mode.

    i have also notice that the import and export tab is not visible

    In that case we might need to take a closer look at the settings. Please edit the first post on this ticket and include your WP logins in the designated Sensitive Data section.
    Sensitive Data Section

    It is completely secure and only our support staff has access to that section. If you want, you can use the below plugin to generate a temporary login URL to your website and share that with us instead:

    You can use the above plugin in conjunction with the WP Security Audit Log to monitor what changes our staff might make on your website (if any):

    We really look forward to helping you.

    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.

    For some reason, the mode was not changing from Rank Math’s Dashboard page on your site. Maybe something went wrong during the installation/activation process. I was able to change the mode by adding some temporary code in your theme’s functions.php file and that seemed to have fixed the issue. Can you please confirm?

    I hope that helps.

    Hi Pratik,
    i can see that the Breadcrumbs is there now together with the advanced options.

    do you think if i deactivate and remove the plugin and ll its file from server via ftp
    and install it again will fix the issue ?

    can i know which temporary code you add, in case the developer ask for it ?

    thank you soooooooooo much for fixing that issue again 🙂

    a stupid quastion, that issue will not affect the plugin performance , right ?

    and i think, the image seting is not actiavted as well, the one that under the breadcrumbs


    To access the images tab, you need to enable the images SEO module in Rank math dashboard.I enabled it for you please check.

    Allow me to consult for which code was changed and get back to you.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    yes please,
    if i can get the code you guys used,
    as we just moved the site to our domian, and things are running great,
    when we moved it, it wents back to easy mode, but i run the setup again and select the advanced mode and things going great,

    so i think its better to remove that code now 🙂
    have a great day and big thanks


    I had immediately removed the code after updating the mode. Sorry for not mentioning it before.

    For future refrence, following is the code which I had added to update the setup mode:

    add_action( 'wp', function() {
        $settings = wp_parse_args(
            [ 'general' => '' ]
        $settings['general']['setup_mode'] = !'advanced';
        RankMath\Helper::update_all_settings( $settings['general'], null, null );
    } );

    Please be extra careful while using this code as it updates the value in the Database. Changing anything in this code could break your site.

    I hope that helps.
