A simple process of adding breadcrumb navigation to your theme is easy to do.
Log into your Joomla Admin area and go to EXTENSIONS >> TEMPLATE MANAGER >> The Corporate 3 and then scroll down to the breadcrumbs settings:
You can Enable or Disable (Yes/No) the breadcrumbs navigation with the radio selection box and then click SAVE.
You Need a Module for Breadcrumb Navigation
With Joomla, you can manage what pages and other areas of your site you want these to be seen easily by opening the EXTENSIONS >> MODULE MANAGER and click NEW because you need a module to load the navigation. You should see a list of modules to choose, so select the “breadcrumbs” option and then you will get a page like this:
I won’t go into the specifics of each part of this module but generally this is what you will be doing – as you can see it also in the screenshot above for the template’s demo:
- Title it as Breadcrumbs and display the title as no
- Select the menu links where you want this module to show by highlighting each one
- Set your other parameters to show “Home” or not, Text Separator, etc. **The one I use here is the “pipe” which is the straight vertical line on the backslash key on your keyboard.
- Don’t forget to have it set to Published and then click SAVE
