Breadcrumb widget

Use the Breadcrumb widget to display the path to the current page. This helps your users to navigate the website. 

To configure the Breadcrumb widget, perform the following:

  1. After you have dragged the widget on your page, click Edit button in the upper-right corner of the widget.
    The Edit window appears.
  2. In What to include in the breadcrumb?, choose one of the following radio buttons:
    • Full path to the current page.
      The system displays the full path to the current page, starting from the homepage.
    • Path starting from a specific page...
      The system displays the path from a selected page to the current page. 
      1. Click Select a page button.
      2. Select a page from the site map and click Done selecting.
        You must select a page that is a parent of the current page.
  3. Select whether you want to:
    • Show Home page link
      This displays the home page at the beginning of the breadcrumb.
    • Show current page in the end of the breadcrumb
      This displays the current page as a link at the end of the breadcrumb.
    • Show group pages in the breadcrumb.
