How do I exclude the root folder "/" from showing up on the breadcrumbs velocity format?

    Here is the .txt version of the format.

    Perhaps you can surround the contents of the #foreach with an #if statement that checks to make sure the current crumb's path is not /. Something like the following:

    #foreach ($crumb in $trail)
      #if ($crumb.getChild("path").value != '/')

    Please let me know how this works out, or if you have any questions.

    Hi Ryan,

    I've tried wrapping it right after the #foreach and no luck. Can't figure out why it isn't complying.

    Thank you for following up. Perhaps try outputting the value of $crumb.getChild("path").value just to check and see what the path value is for the root folder. I believe it should be /, but could be wrong.

    In my case it output // rather than /. Strange, but that worked on the conditional statement you provided.

    Thank you for your help!

    Ah, thank you for testing, and I am glad to hear you were able to get things working. I have seen that as well for the root folder, so I would go with that conditional for the time being.

    I'm going to go ahead and close this discussion, please feel free to comment or reply to re-open if you have any additional questions.

    Have a great day!
