Breadcrumb navigation shows the user’s path to their current location below the title of the page and above the body area. Breadcrumbs are helpful to show the site visitor the hierarchy for the location of the page, so they can easily find their way back to a previous area by clicking on the link. As part of Drupal core, breadcrumbs are automatically created based on the Navigation Menu. Unfortunately, most sites use other core menus and create custom menus to define site navigation. In addition, pages created with Views and Taxonomy are often not associated with a specific menu.
Important Note: The Menu Breadcrumbs module is configured for your YaleSites to create breadcrumbs based on the link hierarchy for your menus.
To ensure breadcrumbs reflect the path for the page being visited, additional module(s) are necessary:
- Yale Common (this module should NEVER be disabled)
