isicsBreadcrumbsPlugin plugin

The isicsBreadcrumbsPlugin is a simple way to handle breadcrumbs in your applications.

isicsBreadcrumbsPlugin is working on Symfony 1.1 or greater.

At a glance

  • A singleton who manages breadcrumbsItems. By default, a root item is present (text: Home, uri: @homepage)
  • A component who display the breadcrumbs


The isicsBreadcrumbsPlugin is licensed under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL).


  • Install the plugin:

    $ symfony plugin-install $ symfony cc

  • Enable the module isicsBreadcrumbs in settings.yml:

    all: .settings: enabled_modules: isicsBreadcrumbsPlugin


Define the path in your templates:

<?php breadcrumbs->addItem('My action', 'myModule/myAction') ?>
  => Home > My action

If the action is deeper:

<?php breadcrumbs->addItem('My previous action', 'myModule/myPreviousAction') ?>
<?php breadcrumbs->addItem('My action', 'myModule/myAction') ?>
  => Home > My previous action > My action

Define the path in your actions:

public function executeMyAction()
  isicsBreadcrumbs::getInstance()->addItem('My action', 'myModule/myAction');
  => Home > My action

Include the breadcrumbs component (in the layout for instance):


You can set your own root:



  • void addItem(String $test, String $uri): add an item at the end of the breadcrumbs
  • void clearItems(): erase all items
  • isicsBreadcrumbs getInstance(): retrieve the singleton instance
  • array getItems(): return an array of isicsBreadcrumbsItem
  • void setRoot(String $test, String $uri): set root item. By default, a root item is already present (text: Home, uri: @homepage).
