Add Category to Breadcrumbs on Product Page


kindandbrave

Question

Site URL: https://www.littleboxes.shop/build

On the product page, category and subcategory are missing from the breadcrumbs. This is extremely frustrating, as this isn't a true breadcrumb if all it does is bring you back to the main page. Is there any workaround to show the full path with category (and subcategories if applicable) in the breadcrumb on the product detail page?

It now only shows:

Shop Home > Product Item

But it needs to show:

Shop Home > Category > (Subcategory if applicable) > Product Item

Any help? Thanks in advance!

So many clients have asked for this. It's nuts you can't do it in Squarespace. 

For the product page, I am looking for this answer as well. Currently it only show Shop Page > Item, instead of Shop Page > Category > Item

I would say there is a bug in SS. I was just editing an item on my test v7.1 site and I have set up some categories.

I had the blouses category assigned to a product item and it showed up like...

...at the top of the product page. After editing the item. The breadcrumbs were changed to...

Basically they have removed the breadcrumbs path on the product page.

I suggest reporting this bug to SS.

Hello - I'm using the Ventura template for an e-commerce platform. My site is not live yet.

I have an issue with the product page not displaying a detailed breadcrumbs trail. It only displays the main category (Shop) and the name of the product, without showing the product's category and sub-category in-between. Does anyone know of a custom code that can be injected to show the category and sub-category in the breadcrumbs trail?

You mean product page or portfolio page?

Hi Abby

I haven't seen this post before, but looking at the products today on the page https://www.littleboxes.shop/build, I can't see any nested categories. Perhaps they've been removed since this thread was posted?

Can you point me at a product that has them, and tell me what they are?

Has anyone been able to resolve this yet? What's the point of breadcrumbs if you can't return to the category?!

There's still no solve for this.

I can build a solution for this, but as I mentioned in my post above, I couldn’t see any nested categories for the product.
