I have created my own page types, NewsHolder and NewsItem. I have created pages so NewsItem is a child of NewsHolder.
But when I use $BreadCrumbs, the parent link in the breadcrumbs does not show.

What am I doing wrong? Do I need to override the getParent() function?

Here is my code:

<?php

class NewsHolder extends Page {
	static $db = array(
	);
	static $has_one = array(
	);
	static $allowed_children = array("NewsItem");
	static $default_child = "NewsItem";
	static $can_be_root = false;
}

class NewsHolder_Controller extends Page_Controller {
	function init() {
		parent::init();
	}
}

?>
<?php

class NewsItem extends Page {
	static $db = array(
		'Date' => 'Date'
	);
	static $has_one = array(
	);
	static $allowed_children = "none";
	static $default_parent = "news";
	static $can_be_root = false;
	static $icon = "mysite/images/treeicons/news";

	function getCMSFields() {
	   $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
	 
	   $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new CalendarDateField('Date'), 'Content');
	    	
	   return $fields;
	}
}

class NewsItem_Controller extends Page_Controller {
	function init() {
		parent::init();
	}
}

?>

Just a question: I suppose 'newsholder' is a subpage as well? (as you've made can_be_root = false).

Normally breadcrumbs works out of the box.

You don't even need to put in the init() function everytime in the controller again, when all you do is calling parent::init();

The problem was that "Show in menu?" option was not checked for the NewsHolder page.
