Omit forum link from breadcrumbs for plugin/theme support forums and reviews

Description

The "Plugins and Hacks" and "Themes and Templates" forums were hidden in [4583], and while still accessible, we really don't care to direct users to those forums in a general sense. However, the breadcrumbs for plugin/theme support and reviews include links to the those forums. See meta-2486.breadcrumbs.png.

Instead of just removing the forum from the breadcrumbs, we should also prepend the plugin/theme name in the breadcrumbs with "Plugin:" or "Theme:" as appropriate to provide context. See meta-2486.proposed-breadcrumbs.png.

Support Forums: Omit forum link from breadcrumbs for plugin/theme support forums and reviews

Their general forums are hidden from listings and no longer meant to be directly linked.

Fixes #2486.
