Hello i asked this on stackoverflow and was refered to here. I hope you dont mind me copying and pasting it. thanks

Hello i don't really know where to ask this on drupal so i hope you all don't mind me asking it here on your fine site. Everything ive asked before has been resolved by your good selves so i thought i'd give you a try on this. Thanks.

I was hoping to just hide my breadcrumb when viewing the taxonomy term view created by Views. I do use Custom Breadcrumbs module but from what ive read that just edits the output and not the breadcrumb appearing or not. Here's an example of my view- http://onlinebanter.com/general-chat

As you can see it's pushing the centre of my page down so as it isnt lined up with the sidebar. I dont really need it in these views. All help appreciate from your vast combined knowledgebase.

This is easily done with a little bit of theming. Based on the page being displayed, you can unset the $breadcrumb template variable to suppress output of the breadcrumbs on that particular page.

Pop a function like this simple example into YOUR_MODULE's template.php:

function YOUR_MODULE_preprocess_page(&$vars) {
  if ($_GET['q'] == 'general-chat') {
  • Ah thanks very much Jan much appreciated. The problem that this would create for me though is that i have many many taxonomy terms. Would i be able to override it based on the path taxonomy/term/* Again i appreciate your input. Thanks

  • It's just a matter of condition you use. To make it apply for taxonomy pages, just change it to something like if (arg(0) == 'taxonomy' && arg(1) == 'term' && is_numeric(arg(2))).

  • Alternatively Jan i think i would only like the breadcrumb to appear on nodes. would that be easier to code you think? thanks

  • ooops sorry Jan i missed you there. I will go try what you suggested. I am just gonna replace general-chat with the code you posted. Ive been working with drupal for about 4 years now and i am picking it up but my php knowledge is lacking. Im too old and a bit dim to study it :(
