Displaying Breadcrumbs for an Entry

There are a couple ways to output a list of breadcrumbs for an entry, depending on how your site is set up.

Outputting the Entry’s Ancestors in a Structure Section #

If your entry is within a Structure section and you want to output the actual trail of entries leading up to the current entry, you can do that by looping through the entry’s ancestors:

{% if entry.level > 1 %}
    <ul class="crumbs">
        {% for crumb in entry.getAncestors() %}
            <li>{{ crumb.getLink() }}</li>
        {% endfor %}
    </ul>
{% endif %}

Outputting a Custom List of Entries #

If your entry is not within a Structure section, or you just want to give it a custom list of breadcrumbs, you can do that by creating an Entries field called “Breadcrumbs”, and assigning it to your entry’s section. After you’ve done that, and you’ve re-saved your entry with some breadcrumb entries selected, you can output your breadcrumbs by looping through that field’s value:

{% if entry.breadcrumbs | length %}
    <ul class="crumbs">
        {% for crumb in entry.breadcrumbs %}
            <li>{{ crumb.getLink() }}</li>
        {% endfor %}
    </ul>
{% endif %}
