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.
