Breadcrumbs Module (Joomla 3.0)

A breadcrumbs module can be really helpful if you have a site with a lot of information. For instance, if you have multiple menu items and sub menu items, a breadcrumbs module will display the location of each page as you browse through all the pages on the site.This article explains how create a Breadcrumbs Module. After logging into the administration area (the back end) of your site, go to Extensions > Module Manager.


Once inside the Module Manager, select the "New" button to create a new module.


Select "Breadcrumbs" from the list of module types that appears.


In the "Details" area of the module, add a title. For the purposes of the sample breadcrumbs that we're creating for these screenshots, we'll title our module "Breadcrumbs". Also, select a position for the module by selecting the "Select Position" button. For the purposes of this article, we've selected the "Breadcrumbs" position in the Protostar Template.


Be sure to save your work. Visit the front end of your site, hit refresh, and you'll see your breadcrumbs module in the position that you selected.


There are always useful options in the "Basic Options" and "Advanced Options" tabs within the module itself.
