FAQ: How do I eliminate the pathway or breadcrumbs?

Post by mcsmom » Fri Dec 29, 2006 3:53 pm

The pathway or breadcrumbs is the hierarchical trail that shows where you are on the site. On the homepage it says Home, then when you go to sections, categories, content items, it will show them in order.

If you wish to eliminate the pathway entirely, edit your template html (index) file.  Usually it will look like this:

If you wish to eliminate it on a specific page, such as just the home page, you can modify the template in this way:

Code: Select all

	if($option != "" && $option != "com_frontpage")
		<div id="pathway"> 
			<?php mospathway() ?>
Understanding:  The first line says that if the option in the url does not equal com_frontpage  (!="com_frontpage") display the pathway. In php ! means not.

The $option != ""  specifies the situation in which there is no option, that is, when your site first loads at index.php.
