Add a Breadcrumb



Breadcrumb is the list of links that appear horizontally across the top of the web page under the purple ribbon. They allow the user to navigate back to previous page(s) the user navigated through to get to the current page. To edit the Breadcrumb you must have the Top Content dot open.

Change the Default Breadcrumb 'Welcome'

Breadcrumbs show up in the grey bar below the purple ribbon. By default each page will have Home |headline of site homepage |Welcome for the breadcrumb.


Change the default Welcome breadcrumb by opening the red dot next to Welcome.


Fill in the line editor with the name of the page you are on, or what you want the breadcrumb to say. You might want to condense the title.
