WiscWeb - Editing site breadcrumbs

This document will walk users through the process of identifying and editing the breadcrumbs on their WiscWeb websites in the UW Theme.

What are breadcrumbs?

Breadcrumbs are a navigational path of links listed in the top left corner of your page. They offer the user a way to click back to related pages and to the Home page of the site.

The links in the breadcrumb navigation are separated with a forward slash ( / ) symbol.

The first link in the list should always be "Home." Subsequent links are listed in hierarchical order based on parent/child relationships.


Text on a page which depicts the breadcrumb link structure in the UW Theme

In this example, the "Training Videos" page is a child page of "WiscWeb Training."
