This plugin generates locational breadcrumb trails for your WordPress powered blog or website. These breadcrumb trails are highly customizable to suit the needs of just about any website running WordPress.
Comments: This plugin is great for themes that don't offer a breadcrumb trail but want one. It doesn't use shortcode - you do need to modify your theme's function.php file to include this. It does have an admin interface within the WP dashboard that you can use to configure the breadcrumbs with.
Title: QB Group Chat Room (XMPP) URL: [wordpress.org...] Description:
Adds a chat room into your page, post or a sidebar. Visible by all visitors. Uses Facebook authentication for name and photo.
Comments: I'm one of the authors. Note: Plugin uses XMPP protocol so you may connect to the same chat room from IM software such as Adium. Alternatively use one of our code samples to implement in other platforms including Android and iOS to enable cross-platform chatting for your users.
