Breadcrumb

 

Indicate the current page’s location within a navigational hierarchy that automatically adds separators via CSS.

Overview

Separators are automatically added in CSS through ::before and content .

<nav aria-label="breadcrumb">
	<ol class="breadcrumb">
		<li class="breadcrumb-item active" aria-current="page">Home</li>
	</ol>
</nav>

<nav aria-label="breadcrumb">
	<ol class="breadcrumb">
		<li class="breadcrumb-item">
			<a href="#">Home</a>
		</li>
		<li class="breadcrumb-item active" aria-current="page">Library</li>
	</ol>
</nav>

<nav aria-label="breadcrumb">
	<ol class="breadcrumb">
		<li class="breadcrumb-item">
			<a href="#">Home</a>
		</li>
		<li class="breadcrumb-item">
			<a href="#">Library</a>
		</li>
		<li class="breadcrumb-item active" aria-current="page">Data</li>
	</ol>
</nav>

Accessibility

Since breadcrumbs provide a navigation, it’s a good idea to add a meaningful label such as aria-label="breadcrumb" to describe the type of navigation provided in the <nav> element, as well as applying an aria-current="page" to the last item of the set to indicate that it represents the current page.

For more information, see the WAI-ARIA Authoring Practices for the breadcrumb pattern.
