Joomla 3 breadcrumbs

5 years 6 months ago #124748 by fancynotion
Joomla 3 breadcrumbs was created by fancynotion
Right now my site breadcrumbs shows the category. This is for the home page of the website which has a blog that has hundreds of articles. So the breadcrumb looks like this:
Home>Category Name>Title of Article

Is there a way to have it just show:
Home>Title of Article

The category is always the same category for every article, if that's any help or would make a difference.

Thanks
Linda

Hi Linda,

The only easy way I can think of would be to use ReReplacer to remove the breadcrumb:

Could you give that tutorial a try and let us know if you have any questions?

Kind regards,
Nick

Instead of removing the category, what would be the ramifications of changing the category name to a title that is shorter? This way the breadcrumb would be shorter.

I did not realize when setting up my categories several years ago that the category name would be visible on the breadcrumbs.

Hi Linda,

There wouldn't be any negative ramifications of changing the category name to a shorter title. Just don't change the alias, since that will break any existing links.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any questions and we'll be glad to answer.

Kind regards,
Nick
