Updated 7 December 2016

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,
