How to Add Breadcrumb Navigation to Themify Themes!

Breadcrumb Navigation is a type of secondary navigation that shows the user where they are currently on a website. This is a very simple but highly requested tutorial for you all to enjoy!

Check out our demo and take a look at Breadcrumb Navigation in action.

The term came from the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale in which the main characters create a trail of breadcrumbs in order to track back to their house. This similar idea allows a user to easily navigate backward through a website’s categories, and then finally to home. Use this incredibly easy tutorial to apply it to your site today.

Breadcrumb Navigation Tutorial:

Step 1:

Step 2:

  • Login to your WP Admin > Themify > Hook Content
  • Add a new hook content, select "content_start" location

Step 3:

  • Paste in: [breadcrumb]

Step 4:

  • If you want the breadcrumb to appear on the page view only: Click "+ Conditions", on the "General" tab, and checkmark the "Page Views" checkbox.

It’s a useful tool for websites of all kinds, especially for eCommerce sites, blogs, and portfolios. Now with this tutorial, you can add a breadcrumb navigation without editing the PHP template.
