Breadcrumbs

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I've been wondering why my breadcrumbs are not complete? When on a product page, it only shows my shop title, and the item that someone is looking at, and no way to get back to the same category without hitting the back button. Why is there no navigation or incomplete breadcrumb on product pages? Is there a fix for this?

Thank you 🙂

This isn't natively possible, but can be achieved with a plugin. Have a read of this thread:

Thank you for the reply... but this is really how the breadcrumb displays? It's not complete, it's only showing the Shop title and the item that someone is looking at. A complete breadcrumb would also show the category the item is in; it's only one more level. I just don't understand how this could be right? I thought it was a bug to be honest. Thanks for the plugin, I personally am trying to keep my site as clean as possible without adding too many plugins like a Wordpress site 😵‍💫 I do appreciate the reply, again, thank you.

Is it the template that causes this to be a problem? Or is this just not something Squarespace can do?

I still have trouble with the thought that Squarespace would not have complete breadcrumbs or at least some way for navigating through items and categories other than a back button...

The limited "breadcrumbs" are standard on all Squarespace 7.1 templates. Squarespace don't offer anything better at the moment so if you want a better solution, you will need a custom solution. 

If you'd like to purchase a popular prebuilt solution, please take a look at my Breadcrumbs Extension for Squarespace 7.1. If you have any questions, feel free to message me.
