I want to move page.main.title block to my breadcrumbs container, not before or after it, I want to push it inside breadcrumbs template and remove other wheres.

So this is my ~/Magento_Theme/templates/html/header/breadcrumbs.phtml :

<div class="container">
    <div class="breadcrumbs">
        <span class="current-name">
                 /*** I NEED PAGE.MAIN.TITLE BLOCK HERE ***/
        <ul class="items">
            <?php /* showing breadcrumb items */ ?>

in above template in .current-name class I need the title block!

I did this in ~/Magento_Theme/layout/default.xml, but it goes before breadcrumbs block not inside it:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <move element="page.main.title" destination="page.top" before="breadcrumbs"/>
        <referenceContainer name="page.top">
            <block class="Magento\Theme\Block\Html\Breadcrumbs" name="breadcrumbs" as="breadcrumbs"/>

and I did this in breadcrumbs.phtml too, It works perfectly but the Title exists in other wheres and I have 2 <h1> tag in my page, so that is wrong!:

echo $block->getBlockHtml('page.main.title');

and I want to use this block(page.main.title) for showing my title Because of SEO stuff and I think this is the proper way! not the bad ways like show title from latest crumb label in loop or anything like that!

Note that the '~' character above is pointing my theme folder (app/design/frontend/MyVendor/myTheme).

Note that I'm using Magento 2.1.9 with PHP 7.0.24.

Try with below way,

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <move element="page.main.title" destination="breadcrumbs" before="-" />


Then you need to use echo $block->getChildHtml('page.main.title'); in everywhere of your breadcrumbs.phtml file.

But I don't know better way to do that!

  • The new one, moved title of page in bottom of products list. not Breadcrumbs! Commented Nov 10, 2017 at 12:44

Here I achieved this line by using below line, If you have the same requirement you can use this line of code.

<move element="breadcrumbs" destination="main.content" before="-"/>

I hope it may help you. find the reference image below.
