Breadcrumb Navigation Bar - Confluence 5.7

I'll start with, even with the oddness I can't yet explain, I love this plugin. What I need to know are the following things:

  1. I used the "breadcrumb-navigation-bar" macro on one of my pages (thinking it would only appear on those pages). It didn't. It now appears only on my sessions on every page I go to. I like it but why is it doing this? I took the macro out of the page and it still shows the BNB on every page now. How to make this go away (if indeed I decide to do this)
  2. I tried, from the documentation, to configure the BNB... However, I don't see it in the Look and Feel section at all for the Space; is it hidden in one of the layouts?
  3. I like it a lot; so much, that I feel like imposing it on all the users (who I know will like it since I work closely with all of them). Is there a place in the overall system configuration/layout that I would insert this so this is the default behavior of the breadcrumbs? This would solve a lot of "help me help me" calls I get when people end up where they don't expect due to not knowing what the "..." means in the default breadcrumbs

Any assistance would be great. To my mind, this is what the breadcrumbs should be in Confluence. Adds a whole new realm.

An update: Now that it is in, everyone after refreshing a page can see the BNB. HOWEVER, I don't see how to configure it and, unless I am on an edit page in Confluence 5.7, one can't see the entire bar. Can see the stub of the current space home but cannot see the "home" block at all. It appears to be hidden behind the sidebar.

I am tyring to upgrade to the latest version, is it as simple as out with the old and in with the new? should I disable, then add, then remove the old one if successful?

Hi Mike and Aram,

Our plugin Space Hierarchy & Breadcrumbs shows the breadcrumbs at top of each page to each user once installed. It also has option to create Space hierarchy as per product or versions of product etc. Breadcrumbs follow the space hierarchy created. I think you will like the solution.
