How can I add breadcrumbs to the

catalog product view


I override in my theme:


<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
        <referenceContainer name="content.top">
            <block class="Magento\Theme\Block\Html\Breadcrumbs" name="breadcrumbs" as="breadcrumbs" />  
        <referenceBlock name="view.addto.compare" remove="true"/>

Sadly this ain't working. Someone knows what to do?

Thanks for any help!

  • Magento2 by default breadcrumb works on product pages did you use any mega menu module ? – Ansar Husain Aug 14 '18 at 16:19

  • are you using Ibnab mega menu module ? – Ansar Husain Aug 15 '18 at 15:58

I had same problem with my Magento 2 instance. Tried lot. Finally resolved it by following extension which helps me to resolve the issue which also set full category path to breadcrumb to all products.


This type of issue is due to page full cache an also know issue in Magento 2 but not all time.
