The purpose of the Breadcrumbs Module is to lay a trail of breadcrumbs as a visitor navigates their way through your website.

The breadcrumbs show the path the visitor has followed.

Each step in the breadcrumb trail is a hyperlink, enabling the visitor to retrace their steps.

The tabs below illustrate how we configure the Breadcrumbs Module in a WYNCHCO Website Design.

By default the Breadcrumbs Module is visible in the Front End at all times.

You can change when the Breadcrumbs Module is visible.

See next tab.

Select the Modules button from the Site panel in your website's Dashboard and use the filters (see image below) to list only the Breadcrumbs Module.

To hide Breadcrumbs in the Front End, unpublish the Module.

Simply toggle the Status button next to the Module's name (see image below) from a Green Tick to a Grey Circle.

You can instead choose to hide the Breadcrumbs Module in response to which Menu Links are selected.

For example: hide Breadcrumbs when the Home Menu Link is selected.

This can be done using the Module Assignment button under the Menu Assignment tab of the Breadcrumbs Module screen.

See images below.
