What is it?


The Breadcrumb Bar allows the users to easily retrace their steps by acting as a secondary navigation. 




The Breadcrumb Bar component automatically displays the breadcrumb bar details from the system within site layouts where it has been added. 




When do I use it?

We recommend that you include the Breadcrumb Bar component in the top cell when creating site layout templates in Layout Manager. Other components that should also be added are the Site Header and Navigation components. In most cases, the Breadcrumb Bar component is placed underneath the Navigation component.
