I have the standard breadcrumbs on my page, but I want to add a second copy.

I've tried to add another block the same as defined in module-theme default xml:

<block class="Magento\Theme\Block\Html\Breadcrumbs" name="crumbs"/>

This does not display.

Should there be a template reference? e.g.


How do I add this to my layout?

We can render breadcrumbs in templates(phtml) like below

<?= $block->getLayout()->getBlock('breadcrumbs')->toHtml(); ?>

just add the above line in which phtml file you want to show breadcrumbs.

It worked for me in category page and product detail page. I tested these two pages only :-)

  • how I can add this to block at admin side ?
