  • Categorise to make your products easier to find (search for) and discover (stumble across)
  • Unique breadcrumb links for each collection in your category tree
  • Simple liquid embed to replace your theme's current top > bottom breadcrumb

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.

This app is included as part of the Categories Uncomplicated Bundle, but you can purchase it in isolation if you only want a category breadcrumb and not a Sidebar Category List, Category Selectbox or Sub-category Icons, then Category Breadcrumbs is the right one for you!

Demo site

Our Demo site shows all the features of Categories Uncomplicated (including breadcrumbs) in a live shop environment. Please note: only the breadcrumb feature is provided for this app, everything else is in the bundle.

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

Simply select the top-level category from the menu selector to see a category tree instantaneously

Improve the SEO metadata you're sending to Google
by including dynamically generated JSON-LD to describe the current category

Create great intuitive navigation by embedding our pre-built page elements in your navigation. Easily add:

A category-based breadcrumb:

{% include 'uncomplicated.categories.catbread' %}


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:

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.


I was having an issue with app installation, but Alex offered a quick solution and provided great support. Thanks again for your help, Alex.


Thank you, Alex, for this awesome app uncomplicated bredcrumbs.Simple to set up. I totally recommend this breadcrumb navigation app to anyone like myself who want's to give the customer the best navigation experience possible for your site. If you are interested in better SEO as well especially now mobile version being indexed first which is the main reason I searched Shopify apps to see if a breadcrumb app actually exists which it does. Shopify themes do not give the option in a category hierarchy so now you can.

Thanks Alex for your support.


Great concept that really helped the usability of our site for customers. The support team was phenomenal when it came to setup help and support. Would definitely recommend this app and happy to have it in our store!
