[insertPageNameHere] is just a placeholder. It displays things like

Home > About

and

Home > News

and

Home > How to carve wood

But not

Home > News > How to carve wood

which is what I want it to display as that's how you navigate to the page "How to carve wood".

I've been googling this for the better part of today and I've tried several different modules, but I've come to realize that there's probably a fundamental flaw in how I use Drupal in general. When I check the "Provide menu link" in a "News" content type page I get the desired behavior from the breadcrumbs, but then additionally my navigation bar gets a dropdown when I hover "News", and in that dropdown is every single page of the "News" content type.

I don't know what to do or what is wrong, but it's probably something about the arrangement of my site. Perhaps there are some fundemental breadcrumb/organizing principles I've missed?

  • Have you tried Path Breadcrumbs? Or the incredibly configurable and well written Crumbs? – Clive May 19 '15 at 14:52
  • I have not! I'll try it out! But I still feel like this could be accomplished simply with core, don't you? – tskjetne May 19 '15 at 14:53
  • Yeh, my problem is that behind the scenes, "How to carve wood" is not actually a child of "News" for some reason. That's what I need to fix, and I don't really see how Path Breadcrumbs does that. – tskjetne May 19 '15 at 15:05
  • What method have you used to establish the content hierarchy if not through the menu? How would "How to carve wood" know that it's a child of whatever node? Unless you've done something to tell Drupal that they're related, it's pretty reasonable for it not to know – Clive May 19 '15 at 15:30
  • Yes, indeed! I haven't really done anything of that sort as I'm not quite sure how to! How do I go about doing that? I don't really see where to do it through Home » Administration » Structure » Menus – tskjetne May 19 '15 at 15:34
