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!

Hallo Mela

Can you point me towards one of your products that is within nested categories?

Hallo Paul, thanks for answering that.
You can find an product in a subcategory here: 

https://heckenwerk.squarespace.com/shop/p/deine-mixtur?p

the category: https://heckenwerk.squarespace.com/shop/lose-mischungen?p

the shop: https://heckenwerk.squarespace.com/shop?p

the breadcrump in the first link says:
Rauch & Glut > Deine Mixtur
according to: shop > product

I'm looking forward to get a solution. My crippely work around for now is to have two shops for the two main categories at least – but this brings it's own problems.


Also thanks to @jdillagodzilla to also pointing to the topic.

 

 

edit for clearification of the category structure

me distracted … here it is

s0lv!ngbrE@dcrumbs

I'm not sure why my website is so important, I see the same happening on @jdillagodzilla site for example.

edit: I also see the same thing happening on the websites of @kindandbrave. It was questioned, that there are prducts nested in categories. I see categories there … like “Fathers Day“ e.g.

Has anyone found a fix for this? I'm just finishing off my site and this is by far the most annoying thing about 7.1 - it would irritate me endlessly as a customer if I were browsing a site. I'd love to either 'fix' the category menu in place on all category pages/product pages or be able to include categories in the breadcrumb menu. A would-be customer isn't gonna want to go through shop -> all -> category they're interested in every time.. 😭

So I decided to just add handmade breadcrumbs for the categories as first line in my additional informations – I have to add specified text in every product anyway. It's an easy peasy workaround for now.

And later on maybe I'll add a tag cloud somewhere.

He created a plugin that's super affordable here: https://sf.digital/breadcrumbs-extension

It's so so so worth it! For now they are hidden on mobile, because of the size of the screen—but honestly desktop is where it was necessary.

They are available on mobile now too @kindandbrave. The installation guide has been updated 😃.
