Mey Breadcrumb Plugin

The component is intended to be registered on a layout rather than individual pages. The component will build out an ol of breadcrumbs based on the settings you choose. Available settings on the page are as follows.

  • Hide Breadcrumbs
    • This will stop the breadcrumbs from rendering on a per page basis.
    • Default: "No"
  • Remove From Breadcrumbs
    • This will add the remove the selected page from the breadcrumb list. However the breadcrumb component will still render all children of the current page.
    • Default: "No"
  • Disabled
    • Add a 'disabled' class to the current breadcrumb list item. Also disable the link to the page.
    • Default: "No"
  • Crumb Title (Optional)
    • The title of the breadcrumb entry if different from the page title.
  • Crumb Title From Id (Optional)
    • Set the crumb title text for the page to the value of a particular element id. This is helpful for pages that get their title from some other plugin (Blog for instance) set this field to the value of a unique id on the page which has the value you want to be displayed for the crumb. This overrides both page title, and the crumb title field.
  • Child Of
    • The parent of the current page. This will be the next crumb in the breadcrumb list. Set to "None" to indicated that the page is a root crumb.
    • Default="None".

The are settings that can be altered on the component itself also. These settings change the classes that appear on the component itself. Available settings are as follows.

  • Breadcrumb Class
    • The class of the top level list (ol)
  • Item class
    • The class of the individual breadcrumb items (li)
  • Active class
    • The class of the lowest level ie: current crumb (li)
  • Disabled class
    • The class to be added to the breadcrumb item (li) when it is marked as disabled.

Update to fix the page sorting issue. Pages now sort alphabetically in the dropdown menu. Also a better icon choice.

Pages are not sorted by title in the dropdown menu in the breadcrumbs tab.

Add the option to set the crumb title using a DOM element that lives on the page. This is helpful for pages that use :slug type routing.
