I at one stage had the Menu breadcrumbs module, then the Custom breadcrumbs module enabled. I have now disabled both of them, but the breadcrumbs are still displaying. Only the Home breadcrumb is displayed on every page, and on the search results page "Home > Search > Content" is displayed.

Where are my breadcrumbs coming from since I disabled both modules?

  • Search results page

    <nav role="navigation" class="breadcrumb"><h2 class="element-invisible">You are here</h2><ol><li><a href="/">Home</a> › </li><li><a href="/search">Search</a> › </li><li><a href="/search/node">Content</a> › </li></ol></nav>
  • Every other page

    <nav role="navigation" class="breadcrumb"><h2 class="element-invisible">You are here</h2><ol><li><a class="active" href="/">Home</a> › </li></ol></nav>

Typically the option to disable these are located under your theme settings (/admin/appearance/settings/THEMENAME). If your theme doesn't provide the option to disable these, you can always resort to http://drupal.org/project/disable_breadcrumbs

  • Thank you for that!!! That removed the Home breadcrumb from every page. However, on the Search results page I've still got the following breadcrumbs: Search › Content Where could they be coming from?

  • Did you disable the breadcrumbs using the theme settings route or the disable_breadcrumbs module?

  • The disable_breadcrumbs module should only be used if you are looking to show and hide breadcrumbs on certain pages/nodes/paths. Otherwise it should be removed in your templates, or if your theme allows to uncheck them in the theme settings.

Drupal will output breadcrumbs by default if you have the $breadcrumb variable in your page templates. It should be as easy as removing the $breadcrumb variable from those templates.
