Breadcrumbs allow the reader to follow the trail back to the homepage in a site with nested levels or hierarchy. Breadcrumbs are helpful for readers who have followed a particular path and wish to backtrack, or readers who have landed on a random page within your site.
If used, breadcrumbs should appear at the top of a page, above the page title.
Breadcrumbs should be implemented within a
<a href="homepage">Sitename</a> » <a href="item-a">Menu item a </a> » Page title
» is the character code for »
The title of the page currently open should appear within the breadcrumb. It should not be linked, and will therefore be a different colour to the rest of the breadcrumb.
