With the BreadCrumbs Advanced module you can set the breadcrumbs options just like the default module but this one has some extra functions added to it.
When you want extra animated effects for your breadcrumbs you can always check out our BreadCrumbs Advanced Plus module.
• HOME CLICKABLE & ALTERNATIVE HOME URL •
Select if the Home breadcrumb should be a hyperlink or not. And given is the possibility to change the Home URL for an alternative one.
• CUT OFF & CUT OFF CHARACTER •
Cut off the last breadcrumb at a given position. Also set a specific character as cut off mark (or multiple characters) at the end of the cutted breadcrumb.
• PADDING LEFT •
Set the number of pixels to add padding to the left of the breadcrumbs. Sometimes this comes in handy when your template should not be modified to use the BreadCrumbs Advances Plus module.
Note for Joomla! 1.5 users:
When your template has a line like this one:
...jdoc:include type="module" name="breadcrumbs"...
you'll have to replace the name with "breadcrumbs_advanced". Or just use another position than "breadcrumb" for the advanced module.
Thanks for making this. :-D
Sorry to read about your dissapointing experience with the BreadCrumbs Advanced module. But testing and unstalling any module/component doesn't always mean it's the cause of website problems.
The Breadcrumbs advanced module is an exact copy of the original breadcrumbs sourcecode from the Joomla! team with a few changes to "cut off" text (breadcrumbs). So nothing is added that could slow down any website.
And remember when you uninstall the module you also set the breadcrumbs module display back in the correct layer (the default one for the template you use). You also can contact us through our webpage for assistance.
As stated above certain modules did not pass the proper data to the breadcrumb modules to work correctly so navigation was broken. I emailed the developer to see if he could possibly link the 'Home' within the breadcrumb permanently. Essentially always giving an option for users to return home.
The developer and I exchanged emails until finally it met my exact needs.
Not only does this module work as it should, it does it flawlessly. And if you need a small tweak, this developer is in my opinion, Superior to many others that would have simply shrugged it off!
Thanks again UWIX!!
The developers website homepage does not have anything but a email address listed and those that use Virtuemart may be disapointed as it also disables the VM Breadcrumbs.
But if it works for you, let us know!
The SEF problem you describe is not related to this module; just tested it and with SEF on or off there's no difference, it still works.
What happens if you place BreadCrumbs Advanced in another moduel-position (e.g. bottom)?
Our webpage is under construction but for support the email address should be enough, isn't it?
We haven't detected the Virtuemart problem and suprises us; BreadCrumbs Advanced is an adjusted (original) source from the Joomla! 1.5 BreadCrumbs module.
Perhaps you're using the default breadcrumbs position instead of a seperate breadcrumbs_advanced position in your template.
