About Category Breadcrumbs

Category Breadcrumbs makes it easy to show your customers a complete breadcrumb. As they navigate down your category tree, their breadcrumb trail expands to give them an easy route back.

Go native

Use the existing Shopify 'Navigation' system to create links, then visualise them in the embedded Breadcrumbs admin panel.

Add SEO metadata to your site

Improve the SEO metadata you're sending to Google by including dynamically generated JSON-LD to describe the current category. No special configuration required. Set up your categories and the app automatically generates the extra metadata.

Create great navigation

Create the most intuitive journey for your customers by embedding our pre-built page elements in your navigation.

Set the top-level category

Simply select the top-level category from the menu selector to see a category tree instantaneously descend from that point in your Shopify menus.

Translate or customise the breadcrumb for your customers

The breadcrumb root (or the first token in an empty breadcrumb) can be set to whatever text or link you'd like, then every product in the rest of the breadcrumb can be configured through Shopify's standard product UI (edit, import or bulk edit).

Suitability

The breadcrumbs need to be embedded somewhere on your site, which requires a basic HTML/CSS coding knowledge. If you're not a coder, we recommend choosing a theme which has some kind of breadcrumbs already so you can see where to replace them with this full-category list of breadcrumbs. We regret we cannot offer a service to embed this for you in your store or customise your theme to make the breadcrumbs look different. If it turns out that your theme is lacking or you're not comfortable editing themes, you might like to take a look at our sister apps that require no coding whatsoever:

  • Menus Uncomplicated, which shows the same category list in the menu navigation and
  • Floating Category List, which floats over the left-hand side of the page (without a sidebar)

Check out our YouTube channel or the apps 'Help' section for a step-by-step install screencast.

Home Make It

This app was just what I needed for my clients store! Using this app is a simple way to improve the navigation of a site and add another level of breadcrumbs that Shopify doesn't have built in. Alex was very helpful and responded quickly to help me set the app up I the way I needed!

Little Skye Children's Boutique

This provides exactly what we need! When we have questions, the developer responds quickly and is super friendly. Couldn't be happier!
