The Easy Breadcrumb module provides a plug-and-play block to be embedded in your pages, typically at some place near the page's header. Easy Breadcrumb takes advantage of the work you've already done for generating your paths' alias, while it naturally encourages the creation of semantic and consistent paths. This modules is currently available for Drupal 6.x, 7.x, and 8.x.x.
Easy Breadcrumb uses the current URL (path alias) and the current page's title to automatically extract the breadcrumb's segments and its respective links. Easy Breadcrumb is really a plug and play module, it auto-generates the breadcrumb by using the current URL, the user needs to do anything to get it working.
For example, having an URL like gallery/videos/once-a-time-in-cartagena, Easy Breadcrumb will automatically produces the breadcrumb Home >> Gallery >> Videos >> Once a time in Cartagena or Home >> Videos >> Once a Time in Cartagena. Again, the breadcrumb presentation will vary depending on your module's settings.
Easy Breadcrumb replaces core breadcrumbs with configurable breadcrumbs that follow Breadcrumb best-practices by adding the current page as an unlinked crumb. The module also allows you to edit or hide the home link, exclude pages, display unlinked paths, and more.
Important: There is no extra, duplicate block for breadcrumbs. The system breadcrumb block is simply extended and improved. So, just place the system breadcrumb block in block UI and the breadcrumbs work.
