# Summary

As the name suggests, Custom Breadcrumbs allows you to create and modify your own breadcrumbs based on node type. After enabling the module, go to Administer > User management > Access control. Grant the "administer custom breadcrumbs" permission to the appropriate roles. Then go to Administer > Site building > Custom breadcrumbs. On this page you'll see the option to add a new custom breadcrumb.

Since there's been no traction yet for this module, folks interested in Drupal 8 breadcrumbs are more than welcome to collaborate with me on Easy Breadcrumbs: https://www.drupal.org/project/easy_breadcrumb

It can easily be extended to cover the use case of custom_breadcrumbs.

@colan Please react on @Greg Boggs. Do you agree (Closed(duplicate)) or plan to port. Maybe even Closed(Duplicate)) due to different module than easy_breadcrumbs.

Hey mmjvb,

I don't think Colan has been active in 4 years or so. But, I believe the feature that custom and path breadcrumbs has that Easy Breadcrumb doesn't (yet) have is the ability to modify the text of the breadcrumb on the current page. Easy Breadcrumb pulls the title, which works for most sites, but there are some sites where folks might need to edit it.

I'm happy to accept the feature, or we can work on another breadcrumb port. Seems worse to maintain multiple different breadcrumb modules when we don't need them though.

Saw recent activity (one 9 days ago).
He also started the initiative to at least talk about all the features of several breadcrumb solutions.
Did the same thing in one of the other modules (path_breadcrumbs). Only interested in the facts so these issues can be updated to reflect them.
His opinion as the owner maintainer of the module in this issue is considered relevant to me.

Disagree on having multiple solutions to be worse. As a maintainer of a module, I would provide a D8 version. Migrating a site based on D7 to D8 is difficult as it is. Not the right time to force additional migrations!

That's great! Most likely, you'll need to email him directly so he sees this issue then as it's not part of his module's issue queue.

In general, the more duplicate modules we make, the worse that all of them are maintained. If instead, we combine forces, fewer programmers can maintain things better. If we did decide to combine some modules, like Path Breadcrumb and Easy breadcrumb for example, in doing it, we'd want to make sure the upgrade path from D7 Path Breadcrumb to D8 Easy Breadcrumb was completely automatic.

Of course, the disadvantage is that we wouldn't want to lose the easy use of Easy Breadcrumb by adding bells and whistles that complicate things.
