What is it?

The Breadcrumb Bar allows users to retrace their steps by acting as a secondary navigation. Once added, the Breadcrumb Bar component displays the Breadcrumb Bar details from the system within site layouts.

When do I use it?

We recommend including the Breadcrumb Bar component in the top cell when creating site layout templates in Layout Manager. Place the Breadcrumb Bar component underneath the Navigation component. Other components to add within the top cell would be the Site Header and the Navigation.
