CMS Breadcrumbs

Breadcrumb navigation is a user interface element commonly used in websites and applications to provide a hierarchical pathway for easy navigation and orientation within a website's structure. It typically appears as a horizontal trail of clickable links, usually located near the top of the page or within a designated navigation bar.

You can add breadcrumbs to your sections and folders, using XSL, and you can also use them in Layout Builder. These values were often edited inside of a file called _props.pcf, _properties.pcf, or similar file. To populate a Breadcrumb on section or folder creation referrer to System Level Variable for TCFs.

Add the following function to functions.xsl ,or similar file, to get the breadcrumbs from any folder. If the folder does not exist, it will not return anything.

<xsl:function name="ou:get-folder-properties" expand-text="yes">
	<xsl:param name="folder-path" />
	<xsl:variable name="dirapi" select="'ou:/Directories/GetProperties?site=' || $ou:site || '&amp;path=' || $folder-path" />
	<xsl:if test="doc-available($dirapi)">
		<xsl:copy-of select="doc($dirapi)" />
	</xsl:if>
</xsl:function>
