Breadcrumb Questions

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

I have 2 questions related to the breadcrumb.

1. The breadcrumb is displaying in a stacked or vertical position. How do I fix this? I have gone to the settings for the breadcrumb section (Abovecontent Row Settings) and it is set to show but not stacked. deepdirtinstitute.org/about/kate-tirion
2. How do I add the background image as shown on the demo. I have tried to add the background image under the same settings but it is not working. demo.joomlabamboo.com/?theme=oct16

Hi

1. Utafiti uses a slightly different override for the template e.g. it adds it as part of the banner

Are you wanting it to be horizontal with text all the same size?

This is how I would like it to look with the background.

Well the image example isn't possible if you want the breadcrumbs horizontal

The bit where it says Feature - 2 columns in the image and text below is the breadcrumbs module

This template uses the page title as the large text in the breadcrumbs

and then the smaller text below it

The image itself is coming from a zentools2 backstretch slideshow published to the banner position

The height value is set in the module and in the drag and drop section an image is displayed from a folder

Make "image fill the width of the container" is set in the image section

I'd suggest using a blurry out of focus image if possible

In the advanced tab of the module add

usafiti-under-banner

the developer had a typo with the class name but the above is correct

There is a lot to cover with this question so feel to ask me to go through it in more depth if needed

Cheers

Thank you! I don't know if you covered it or not but how do I make the breadcrumbs horizontal?

You explained very well how to do the backstretch slideshow in the banner position but I don't quite get how to make the breadcrumbs horizontal. You mentioned in one statement that you could not, despite it being horizontal for the demo. Could you please clarify. Thanks!

Sorry yes bit confusing there

With this template the breadcrumbs occupies two lines

It takes the page title as the first part and then the rest of the path underneath it

If you want the image as per the template then this is what you need

Are you planning to publish the slideshow to the position mentioned above?

It can't really work without the image - then we'd need to try something else

Thank you for your patience. I have finally had a chance to do it. I published the zentools2 to the banner position as you can see here. deepdirtinstitute.org/about/mission

I also added usafiti-under-banner to the advanced tab for the zentools2 module.

As you can also see, the breadcrumb is still vertical and below the banner. The breadcrumb module is published to the breadcrumb position. This does not look like the demo.

Again, how do I make the breadcrumbs horizontal? Thanks!

Hi

Can you switch the breadcrumbs to the banner position

and adding the same class to the breadcrumbs module itself
- usafiti-over-banner

Thanks

You need a space before usafiti-over-banner

Try adding that
