Title: Showing breadcrumbs following the category structure
Post by: m.davide82 on March 20, 2020, 15:10:38 pm
Hello,

in order to have a clean breadcrumb, without any problems, is there any way to show the breadcrumbs following the category structure instead of the menu structure?


Thanks a lot.
Davide

Hi,

Yes, there is a way to display breadcrumbs without problems and by using the category structure.
Where does it not work?

If you setup corretly your Joomla menus, the category and breadcrumb can have same structure.

Hi Pinochico,

ok, how can I show it following the vm category structure?

If you setup corretly your Joomla menus, the category and breadcrumb can have same structure.


Hi Studio 42,

I know, but if I need to have custom urls, I need to create menu items in a differente manner, not the same of the breadcrumbs.

Example:
School > Trolley
Url will be: school/trolley

If I would like to have only trolley in url, I need to create an hidden menu on the first level and after create an alias in the second level of the main menu.
Doing this job, the breadcrumb will be just Trolley and not School > Trolley.


Thanks a lot,
Davide

If you want remove the first level, then you have of course to use alias in main menu and real category link in a hidden menu.
But this is only the case for the first level of categories.
Another solutions, is to create an override of the breadcrumb module, or create your own breadcrumb module. I have already code similar request for my customer(eg if a breadcrumb item have no link this need to be removed for google snippets since last year)
The logic is to verify if you have in request option=com_virtuemart. If it's the case, then you write your own breadcrumb links.

Hi,

as wrote Patrick:

- use override of the breadcrumb module, or create your own breadcrumb module (don't forget for new google rich snippets)
- use plugin for Virtuemart Rich Snippets (breadrumb is part of plugin) - https://www.minijoomla.org/extensions/google/rich-snippets-for-virtuemart

Hi Guys,

I know that I need to do an override, but I don't know how to get the right values! :)

@Pinochico, my template supports the rich snippets, if I buy that plugin, can I disable the rich snippets of your plugin and use it only for breadcrumbs?

Thanks.
Davide

The code is too long to write. So i cannot write it for you for free.
Contact me, if you need, it should be done in an hour.

Hi pinochico,

yes, I saw it, but to be sure it's better to ask.

So you can confirm that the breadcrumbs is made from Virtuemart categories and not from the menu structure?

Thanks.
Davide

Yes,

for breadcrumbs we use category strom (function getPathway), not Joomla menu list

Pinochico, I tried to buy your extensions but GOPay doesn't accept my credit cards, why? I haven't problems with them.
Tried to contact you via form, but no captcha and it doesn't work.

Thanks.

Thanks for debug :)
I setup Contact Form with OPC captcha, and now is ok.

But for Gopay payment I don't see any info in log and created order in VM too. If you created order with gopay, then order must be created in VM before redirect to gopay.
Are you created today?

The last order is from 14.4 with gopay payment.
