Breadcrumbing

This may be a completely stupid question... but... is there any way to make the breadcrumbing work like real breadcrumbs? Currently ours is set up to use the folder structure. This means that a user my go from area to area on the site that are in different folders, they then lose the breadcrumbing that shows the path of how the ended up on that page.

I'm wondering if there's a way to make the breadcrumbs work as visited pages instead of using the folder structure.

    Hi Anne,

    You would need to use some kind of scripting in order to accomplish this. The code could be included in your pages and managed in Cascade Server, however it wouldn't work until it was published to your live web server.

    You would not be able to do this using index blocks/formats due to Cascade Server's bake/push functionality. Since pages are assembled and then pushed to the web server as static files, whatever is showing up as the breadcrumbs in the system will be what shows up on the web server. When a user browses to a page on your live web site, Cascade is out of the picture and has no idea how the user got to that page.

    My guess is that you can probably find a good bit of sample breadcrumb scripts to handle exactly what you are describing here (try searching Google for 'breadcrumbs pages visited'). Then, all you would need to do is integrate similar code into your pages in Cascade and publish them out.

    Let me know if this makes sense.

    Thanks!
