Implemented Conversation Breadcrumbs confusing for Novice User

    since I do not have a Forum "Home" like here at XenForo.com, but my Forum-Nodes are showing directly at the Index, the Breadcrumbs look a bit confusing for a Novice User when viewing "Private Conversations".

    The user might not understand the the "Private Conversations" are in fact not showing up in the Forums, but are literally "Private Conversations".

    But since the Breadcrumb is showing "Forums", this might get confusing for Novice Members to understand that "Private Conversations" are not a part of the Forum and that "Private Conversations" are indeed "private".

    I would suggest to change the Breadcrumbs for "Private Conversations" to something other than "Forums", since the term "Forums" in the Breadcrumb is confusing.

    Maybe something like e.g.:
    "Contact" > "Your Account" > "Conversations"
    "Your Account" > "Inbox" > "Conversations"

    Or even better, move "Private Conversations" out of the "Your Account"-tree at all.
    "Inbox" > "Contact" > "Conversations"

    See screenshot to understand what I mean:
