We all know that our breadcrumb is not perfect. It's very far from it,
As breadcrumbs are currently removed from HEAD, we have a blank sheet to
draw something pretty on it.
I discussed this long with webchick, and here are some results:
*) There is no one solution that fits all.
*) Sometimes you even want multiple breadcrumbs.
*) Core needs to provide some default and configurable breadcrumb(s)
*) Contrib should be able to add more breadcrumb schemes
With that said, here are some breadcrumb schemes that I believe should be
*) Based on path. I have page/subpage/pagethird and the breadcrumb should
read "link to page" >> "link to page/subpage" >> "title of
page/subpage/pagethird". Or without the title. Remember, there is no one
solution that fits all.
*) Based on tags. Vocabulary name >> Hierarchy of tags provided it's a
single hiearchy. Here, if you want you can provide multiple very easily,
even ordering is not a problem, vocabularies have weights already.
I hereby propose the creation of breadcrumb module based on Eaton's token
module and partially on his custom breadcrumb project. I strongly believe
that token module needs to find its way to core, it's not big and it's
A good read is
