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.
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).
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)

Very simple app that tremendously improved navigation on my site. Great product, highly recommended!
Awesome app, easy to use, install and configure. Shopify breadcrumbs can be a hassle because there's no way to organize them based on menu structure, but with Category Breadcrumbs, you can create great breadcrumb navigation that will improve the user experience of your Shopify store. Thank you, Alex, for providing such a great app!
Thanks for the help with structured data, Alex- overall the plugin works great- Shopify breadcrumbs can be difficult to configure, and this solution made it easy to set up thanks to the video. Was the best app solution I've found.
