  • Version: 1.2
  • Author: Symphony Community (https://github.com/symphonists)
  • Build Date: 2012-05-02
  • Requirements: Symphony 2.3.x

Includes a Data Source that, based on the current page, will provide a focused XML structure representing the parent hierarchy. It is more efficient than a conventional Navigation DS, since there is less redundant data and is much easier to traverse with XPath.


** Note: The latest version can always be grabbed with "git clone git://github.com/symphonists/breadcrumb.git" **

  1. Upload the 'breadcrumb' folder in this archive to your Symphony 'extensions' folder.

  2. Enable it by selecting the "Breadcrumb", choose "Enable/Install" from the with-selected menu, then click Apply.
