Displaying and ordering category taxonomy.

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10271703/order-of-results-of-the-category

Original code, for reference:

$cats=get_the_category();
$cid=array();
foreach($cats as $cat) { $cid[]=$cat->cat_ID; }
$cid=implode(',', $cid);
foreach((get_categories('orderby=name&include='.$cid)) as $category) { // notice orderby
	echo '<a href="'.get_category_link($category->cat_ID).'">'.$category->cat_name.'</a> '; // keep a space after </a> as seperator 
}

Add this to functions:

function the_breadcrumb() {
	global $post;
	echo '<ul id="breadcrumbs">';

	$cats=get_the_category();
	$cid=array();
	foreach($cats as $cat) { $cid[]=$cat->cat_ID; }
	$cid=implode(',', $cid);
	foreach((get_categories('orderby=id&include='.$cid)) as $category) {
		echo '<li><a href="'.get_category_link($category->cat_ID).'">'.$category->cat_name.'</a></li>';
		echo '<li class="separator"> &lt; </li>';
	}
	echo '<li>';
	the_title();
	echo '</li>';
	echo '</ul>';
}

And call from within the theme:

the_breadcrumb();

And for displaying breadcrumbs for parent categories: reference

function dimox_breadcrumbs() {

	/* === OPTIONS === */
	$text['home']     = 'Home'; // text for the 'Home' link
	$text['category'] = 'Archive by Category "%s"'; // text for a category page
	$text['search']   = 'Search Results for "%s" Query'; // text for a search results page
	$text['tag']      = 'Posts Tagged "%s"'; // text for a tag page
	$text['author']   = 'Articles Posted by %s'; // text for an author page
	$text['404']      = 'Error 404'; // text for the 404 page

	$show_current   = 1; // 1 - show current post/page/category title in breadcrumbs, 0 - don't show
	$show_on_home   = 0; // 1 - show breadcrumbs on the homepage, 0 - don't show
	$show_home_link = 1; // 1 - show the 'Home' link, 0 - don't show
	$show_title     = 1; // 1 - show the title for the links, 0 - don't show
	$delimiter      = ' ┬╗ '; // delimiter between crumbs
	$before         = ''; // tag before the current crumb
	$after          = ''; // tag after the current crumb
	/* === END OF OPTIONS === */

	global $post;
	$home_link    = home_url('/');
	$link_before  = '';
	$link_after   = '';
	$link_attr    = ' rel="v:url" property="v:title"';
	$link         = $link_before . '<a' . $link_attr . ' href="%1$s">%2$s' . $link_after;
	$parent_id    = $parent_id_2 = $post->post_parent;
	$frontpage_id = get_option('page_on_front');

	if (is_home() || is_front_page()) {

		if ($show_on_home == 1) echo '
';

	} else {

		echo '
