Breadcrumb

A simple breadcrumb component to improve your navigation experience

Colors No
Sizes Yes
Variables Yes

The Bulma breadcrumb is a simple navigation component that only requires a breadcrumb container and a ul list. The dividers are automatically created in the content of the ::before pseudo-element of li tags.

You can inform the current page using the is-active modifier in a li tag. It will disable the navigation of inner links.


<nav class="breadcrumb" aria-label="breadcrumbs">
  <ul>
    <li><a href="#">Bulma</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Documentation</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Components</a></li>
    <li class="is-active"><a href="#" aria-current="page">Breadcrumb</a></li>
  </ul>
</nav>

Alignment #

For alternative alignments, use the is-centered and is-right modifiers on the breadcrumb container.

<nav class="breadcrumb is-centered" aria-label="breadcrumbs">
  <ul>
    <li><a href="#">Bulma</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Documentation</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Components</a></li>
    <li class="is-active"><a href="#" aria-current="page">Breadcrumb</a></li>
  </ul>
</nav>
<nav class="breadcrumb is-right" aria-label="breadcrumbs">
  <ul>
    <li><a href="#">Bulma</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Documentation</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Components</a></li>
    <li class="is-active"><a href="#" aria-current="page">Breadcrumb</a></li>
  </ul>
</nav>
