Any advice or bkm for implementing breadcrumbs in wp?

hello all.
Was wondering about implementing breadcrumbs in wp.
I actually don’t think i ever implemented that period. Any advice on how to do that or bkm?

Found this function online

function the_breadcrumb() {
        echo '<ul id="breadcrumbs">';
    if (!is_home()) {
        echo '<li><a href="';
        echo get_option('home');
        echo '">';
        echo 'Home';
        echo "</a></li>";
        if (is_category() || is_single()) {
            echo '<li>';
            the_category(' </li><li> ');
            if (is_single()) {
                echo "</li><li>";
                echo '</li>';
        } elseif (is_page()) {
            echo '<li>';
            echo the_title();
            echo '</li>';
    elseif (is_tag()) {single_tag_title();}
    elseif (is_day()) {echo"<li>Archive for "; the_time('F jS, Y'); echo'</li>';}
    elseif (is_month()) {echo"<li>Archive for "; the_time('F, Y'); echo'</li>';}
    elseif (is_year()) {echo"<li>Archive for "; the_time('Y'); echo'</li>';}
    elseif (is_author()) {echo"<li>Author Archive"; echo'</li>';}
    elseif (isset($_GET['paged']) && !empty($_GET['paged'])) {echo "<li>Blog Archives"; echo'</li>';}
    elseif (is_search()) {echo"<li>Search Results"; echo'</li>';}
    echo '</ul>';

and then i call it w/

<?php the_breadcrumb(); ?>

but I get this

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘’<ul id=‘’ (T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING) in C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-content\ hemes\cdiDlm03\functions.php on line 163

I did try to change the " to ` and ’ that did nothing.
Thank you

never mind. found a better function that seems worksin case anyone else needs it;
