Features/details


  • The module adds an additional breadcrumb item at the end for the currently edited page. That's because I think it's more intuitive for the dropdown under each breadcrumb item to show the item's sibling pages rather than the item's child pages.
  • In the dropdown menus the current page and the current page's parents are highlighted in a crimson colour to make it easier to quickly locate them in case you want to edit the next or previous sibling page.
  • Unpublished and hidden pages are indicated in the dropdowns with similar styling to that used in Page List.
  • If the option to include uneditable pages is selected then those pages are indicated by italics with a reduced text opacity and the "not-allowed" cursor is shown on hover.
  • There is a limit of 25 pages per dropdown for performance reasons and to avoid the dropdown becoming unwieldy.
  • If the current user is allowed to add new pages under the parent page an "Add New" link is shown at the bottom of the breadcrumb dropdown.
  • If the currently edited page has children or the user may add children, a caret at the end of the breadcrumbs reveals a dropdown of up to the first 25 children and/or an "Add New" link.

Overriding the listed siblings for a page


If you want to override the siblings that are listed in the Page Edit dropdowns you can hook the BreadcrumbDropdowns::getSiblings method and change the returned PageArray. For most use cases this won't be necessary.

Incompatibilities


This module replaces the AdminThemeUikit::renderBreadcrumbs method so will potentially be incompatible with other modules that hook the same method.

Install and use modules at your own risk. Always have a site and database backup before installing new modules.
