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.


Breadcrumb Example

In this example, the "Gravity Forms" page is a child page of "Plugins."
