vBulletin 4.xx: How to remove navigation breadcrumbs on FORUMHOME

At one time it was thought they gave an SEO boost. Current thinking says not so much anymore and many users remove breadcrumbs, in favor of the cleaner look. The comment field isn’t necessary but is always a helpful tool to find modification at a later time.

Find navbar_link and make the following change;

<!– Breadcrumbs –><vb:if condition=”THIS_SCRIPT != ‘index'”>

<vb:if condition=”$show[‘breadcrumb’]”>

<li class=”navbit”><a href=”{vb:raw nav_url}”>{vb:raw nav_title}</a></li>

<vb:else />

<li class=”navbit lastnavbit”><span>{vb:raw nav_title}</span></li>


<!– Breadcrumbs –></vb:if>

Next find and make the following change in the Navbar Template

<!– Breadcrumbs –><vb:if condition=”THIS_SCRIPT != ‘index'”>

<div id=”breadcrumb” class=”breadcrumb”>

<ul class=”floatcontainer”>

<li class=”navbithome”><a href=”index.php{vb:raw session.sessionurl_q}” accesskey=”1″><img src=”{vb:stylevar imgdir_misc}/navbit-home.png” alt=”{vb:rawphrase home}” /></a></li>

{vb:raw navbits.breadcrumb}

{vb:raw navbits.lastelement}


<hr />


<!– Breadcrumbs –></vb:if>

That’s it. What you’ve done is wrap and if conditional for the index around the breadcrumb call.
