I'm using breadcrumbs generally throughout my Drupal 7 site and all working well.

However, for news articles, I don't want to have to add each into the menu structure as over time, this will be a little out of control.

I'd like content of the type = news to have

Home > News > Title

with an active link back to my /news page.

Is this possible whilst still using the normal breadcrumb for other content?

    Depending on your exact requirements, and what's in your main menu, drupal.org/project/custom_menu_breadcrumbs might be an option

  • Thanks Clive. That looks good but sadly, I'm on a D7 site! Should have made that clear.

  • Thanks again Clive. It didn't seem to quite get me there, but this blog helped: webwash.net/… I used Path Breadcrumbs to define per node, but turned off the global setting so my menu breadcrumbs were retained.

  • Besides Crumbs (my answer below), there is also Menu position, which I think also affects the breadcrumb.

Just for the record, if you want to do this with Crumbs:

Go to /admin/structure/crumbs/entity-parent. For content type "News", enter "news" as parent path.

Likely it already works now. If not, check the order and status of plugins on /admin/structure/crumbs. Also check /admin/structure/crumbs/debug, where you can simulate breadcrumb-building for specific pages.
