    Adding Breadcrumb in PrestaShop 1.7 Module Front Controller

    Add Breadcrumb in PrestaShop 1.7 Module Front Controller By a function :

    PrestaShop 1.7 has been released early and there are many changes from code end like Symfony introduced and the default theme is updated to a new classic theme.

    If you are developing Module for PrestaShop 1.7. This version introduced a new way of managing the Breadcrumbs on every page. In V1.6, we were managing breadcrumbs on tpl page but now we can manage this by a php function.

    You are just needed to add this PHP function in your module front controller, You can see then the breadcrumbs in your front page.

    public function getBreadcrumbLinks()
    {
        $breadcrumb = parent::getBreadcrumbLinks();
    
        $breadcrumb['links'][] = [
            'title' => $this->getTranslator()->trans('Women', [], 'Breadcrumb'),
            'url' => $this->context->link->getModuleLink('module_name', 'controller_name')
         ];
    
        $breadcrumb['links'][] = [
            'title' => $this->getTranslator()->trans('T-shirts', [], 'Breadcrumb'),
            'url' => ''
         ];
    
         return $breadcrumb;
     }

    Initial Prestashop versions is not translating the string written in trans() function for non-native modules. You can use

    $this->module->l(‘Women’, ‘controller_name’)

    instead of this.

    Finally, Breadcrumb will look like this,

    Hi Dheeraj,

    I was looking for changing the breadcrumb in my module. I followed your tip but it didn’t work on PS 1.7.2.0:
    I pasted your code into
    class MyModuleManageModuleFrontController extends ModuleFrontController
    {

    #yourcode

    }
    But on Front end I cannot see the default breadcrumb. Perhaps I missed something …

    However I’ve tried out with success this method:
    class MyModuleManageModuleFrontController extends ModuleFrontController
    {
    public function initContent()
    {
    parent::initContent();
    $this->assign();
    }

    /**
    * Assign manage list template
    */
    public function assign()
    {

    $links[] = array(
    ‘title’ => ‘ex1’,
    ‘url’ => $link->getPageLink(‘my-account’, true)
    );
    $links[] = array(
    ‘title’ => ‘ex2’,
    ‘url’ => ‘another url’
    );
    $links[] = array(
    ‘title’ => ‘ex3’,
    ‘url’ => ”
    );

    $context->smarty->assign(‘breadcrumb’, array(‘count’ => count($links), ‘links’ => $links));
    }
    }

      getBreadcrumbLinks() this is not my function, this prestashop default function. I have overrided this and add my own breadcrumb.

      Do not use your own assign() function just override getBreadcrumbLinks() function and write your code in this function.

      Correct code;
      public function getBreadcrumbLinks()
      {
      $breadcrumb = parent::getBreadcrumbLinks();

      $breadcrumb[‘links’][] = [
      ‘title’ => $this->getTranslator()->trans(‘ex1’, [], ‘Breadcrumb’),
      ‘url’ => $this->context->link->getPageLink(‘my-account’, true)
      ];

      $breadcrumb[‘links’][] = [
      ‘title’ => $this->getTranslator()->trans(‘ex2’, [], ‘Breadcrumb’),
      ‘url’ => ‘another url’
      ];

      $breadcrumb[‘links’][] = [
      ‘title’ => $this->getTranslator()->trans(‘ex3’, [], ‘Breadcrumb’),
      ‘url’ => ”
      ];

      return $breadcrumb;
      }

      Remove $this->assign(); from initContent();
