I'm using Drupal 9 and recently discovered Easy Breadcrumb. I'd like to use a custom field to overwrite the page title to be displayed in the breadcrumbs, but it seems to be not working.

In the configuration, there is a field "Alternative title field name for breadcrumb" with "field_breadcrumb_title" by default, but when I add a field with this name to my page, it does not display. Instead, I get the page title or (when I disable "Use the real page title") the formated URL segment.

There is a discription of every configuration field in the documentation, but of all things this one is missing.

Does anyone know, if this functionality is working?

Thank you!

  • Looking at the code, this functionality looks for the ->value of that field, so it has to be a plaintext field or similar, it cannot be a taxonomy term or formatted text field.

  • @Hudri I used plaintext as well as formated and unformated fields. Unfortunately, no result. Checked the code as well, looks promising to me, but can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.
