Hello all,

After reading this I'm starting to think that I may be heading off-track
with my wordpress theme.

Otto, are you saying that my breadcrum code that I put in is a doing it
wrong all because I just given people no choice in what plugin they use?

Would adding the option in my next version to turn it off make it a doing it
right? Isn't the idea to make a wordpress theme that has some decent
features without needing to use plugins? Is it not true that the more
plugins that you got installed the slower wordpress will get?
