I am looking to do one of these solutions for a users 'contact' page. When a user has unchecked "Personal Contact Form", and someone accesses that URL (user/id/contact), the breadcrumb displays the users username in the breadcrumb.

The username in the breadcrumb is not desirable, because some people make their email address their username, so:

  • How can I disable the breadcrumb from displaying on 403/404 responses, or
  • How can I disable the path based breadcrumb service outright?
  • How can I disable the path based breadcrumb service outright? override the service with empty, I guess.

  • That's valid? Won't cause any errors?

  • Possibly... well... there is one way to find out, haha.

You could add a visibility condition to the breadcrumb block. For 404 there is this module block_in_page_not_found and if you negate the condition the block is displayed on all pages other than 404's:

enter image description here

If you want to exclude 403 pages as well you can extend this module and add a check for

$status->getStatusCode() == 403

to Drupal\block_in_page_not_found\Plugin\Condition\PageNotFoundRequest::evaluate.

Or use the patch from this issue Allow blocks to be configured to show/hide on 403/404 pages, when it applies again.

  • Ah, I suppose I could do this too, that didn’t even occur to me.

  • Following their example I made a small module condition that checked 403.
