App details

Category Breadcrumbs

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 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).

Supports 2.0 themes

Full support for Shopify's new "themes 2.0". After installing the app and configuring your categories, simply open up Shopify's Theme Editor to drag-and-drop the breadcrumb into your theme.

Suitability (1.0 themes only)

For older (1.0) themes, the breadcrumbs need to be embedded somewhere on your site using liquid, which requires a basic HTML/CSS coding knowledge. If you're not a coder, we recommend choosing a 2.0 theme like Dawn. If you're attached to a 1.0 theme, choose one 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:

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

    This app has helped me to set up a very important part of my site's navigation. I needed something that would create a breadrcumb for faux 'sub-categories' and this is great. Tip... set up a new navigation menu specifically for your product categories if the breadcrumb doesn't show all levels of your structure. Good and cheery support too!

    Does the job nicely! Easy enough to install. Not much setting up needed. Alex is a great help with any issues.

    Moving from wordpress we were surprised at the lack of having urls, breadcrumbs, and cannonical urls work well together. Exactly what we needed to make breadcrumbs jive with urls on our site. Easy to use and works as designed.
