Breadcrumbs

Breadcrumbs are a secondary way of navigating a website. This gives visitors the ability to easily establish the path that took them to their current location. In addition to the breadcrumbs in the Web Platform, you will find that the left navigation window populates once you have enabled the breadcrumbs.
