I have a Page display in a View. The page url is taxonomy/term/xx and I am trying to display the term as the page title and the breadcrumb.

I have tried to set the term as an argument Content: Has taxonomy term ID with the following settings, I checked Set the breadcrumb for the term parents but it did not work. Can someone help?

By default, taxonomy terms default view is disabled so you can enable it and see how it is working with the contextual filter.

You need to Configure contextual filter: Content: Has taxonomy term ID (with depth)

enter image description here


Check "Override title" and "Override breadcrumb" checkboxes on your screenshot and use "%1" for the first argument, "%2" for the second, etc.

For example you can specify "Article %1" and "%1" will be replaced by the name of taxonomy term.

  • I tried that. But it could not retrieve arguments from the URL. I thought may be the view is rendered before the URL is called (since it's a page which knows its own URL) and that would be the reason

  • What field do you use as contextual filter? Try to use "Content: Has taxonomy term ID" field and follow this receipt drupal.stackexchange.com/a/37645/7313 Jul 21, 2012 at 8:45
  • Without knowing more about your Views settings, I don't know if this will be helpful or not but there are some instructions about taxonomy terms in Views and some details about breadcrumbs with contextual filters are available here: drupal.stackexchange.com/questions/36217/…
