Can I add "breadcrumbs" to my site?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm very new to CSS and HTML coding. In fact I'm very new to building a website. Can anyone tell me how I might be able to add breadcrumbs to my sight? Or have any other suggestions for navigation.

I'm trying to create and online store the DIY way (because I'm in the UK and don't benefit from SQSP e-commerce).


Thanks in advance people!

Well the good news is that somehow it can be done (see here)

The bad news is that it may require a bit of experience to figure out how to do it. I didn't exploredtoo much the possibilities so i'm afraid i cannot give you more details on this subject.

Good luck

Mostly graphic design but also a bit of coding (html, css, js )

@ratnaish007 I was thinking about getting developer mode to do this (inject code into the Page Header under Page > Settings > Advanced). However, what you propose sounds like a need a more traditional FTP to make this happen (where the folder structure and whole mark up document is available to me). Is that possible with developer mode?

On Squarespace 7.1 the built-in breadcrumbs are very limited, but it is possible with our Breadcrumbs extension:
