How do I change the breadcrumb title?

Last update: 16 August, 2018
For advanced breadcrumb modifications, we have several developer filters.

When you may have long titles for a post, page or taxonomy, you may prefer to use a shorter title for the Yoast SEO breadcrumbs. Each breadcrumb level can be changed on the corresponding post, page, or taxonomy under the advanced setting tab of the Yoast SEO metabox.
