Overview of the Breadcrumb control

Control in a static, dynamic, AWP and PHP page

The "Breadcrumb" control corresponds to a series of links allowing the Web user to go back into the logical tree structure of a site.
The content of this control is built dynamically when navigating "down" into the site.
Typically, you will have the ability to create menus such as: Camera >> Photo >> Digital >> Reflex.
Creating a Breadcrumb control

Creating a Breadcrumb control

To create a Breadcrumb control:
  1. On the "Creation" tab, in the "Navigation" group, click "Breadcrumb".
  2. Click where you want to create the control in the page. The control is automatically created. In the editor, the Breadcrumb control appears in the following format:
To view the characteristics of the control, select "Description" in the context menu.
The "Details" tab of the control description allows you to:
  • define the character for separating the different breadcrumbs.
  • define whether the last element of a breadcrumb is a link.

Configuring a Breadcrumb control

To configure a Breadcrumb control:
  1. Display the control description ("Description" from the popup menu of the control).
  2. In the "General" tab, click the "Edit navigation map" button.
  3. The window for configuring the navigation map path is displayed. For more details, see Building and modifying the navigation map.
  4. Validate the navigation map.
  5. The "Breadcrumb" control is configured to be used on the different pages of your site.
Remark: The different elements of a "Breadcrumb" control can be handled and modified through programming with the WLanguage functions for managing Breadcrumb controls.

Using templates

If your site is using a template, we advise you to create the breadcrumbs of your site according to the page template. Therefore, all the pages that use the template will be automatically refreshed and will use the breadcrumbs.

Breadcrumbs and types of pages

The breadcrumbs must contain:
  • dynamic WEBDEV pages only.
  • static pages and/or AWP pages.
  • PHP pages.
By programming, you have the ability to mix up the types of pages.
Minimum version required
  • Version 10
