Joomla 3.0 – How to Remove ‘Home’ From the Breadcrumbs

Joomla 3.0 Tutorial on How to Remove the word ‘Home’ From the Breadcrumbs.  The breadcrumbs is a trail of links or pages that you went through to get to the current page.  If you went through 10 different pages, you will have 10 links in your breadcrumbs.   There will also be a link to the ‘Home’ in the breadcrumbs.  Since I already created a link to my homepage at the top, I don’t really need another link to ‘Home’ in my breadcrumbs, so I will remove it.  Below I will show you how.

This is how my Joomla 3.0 Website Looks with the Breadcrumbs

If you want to show the word ‘Home’ again, you can just go back to step 3 and set the value for ‘Show Home’ = “Yes”.  There are other options you can change like, showing and hiding the phrase ‘You are here’ in the Basic Options of the Breadcrumb Module Manager.

Hope that helps.  Please leave me a comment if you have any questions.

Thanks,
