# Akhet / unfinished / breadcrumbs.rst

The default application does not include this but several people have asked about it so here is my thoughts. Breadcrumbs are the navigation bar at the top of the page on many sites.

The first three are links to ancestor pages, and the last one is just an abbreviation for the current page. In some variations, the last one is omitted. The bar gives users an intuitive way to see where they are in the site and to navigate upward.

Here's one way to do this in the site template:

<%  crumbs = self.breadcrumbs()  %>
% if crumbs is not None:
<a href="${url.app}">Home</a> % for link in self.breadcrumbs(): &nbsp;&gt;&nbsp;${link}
% endfor
% endif
