Hi,

I noticed something strange concerning the breadcrumbs on my tag-sites. The category / origin of the crumb is sometimes right, often wrong … it seems like random. But the thing ist – I don't want to show the category anyway.

On tag-sites I just want to show a breadcrumb category "Tags" instead. Like this: Home > Tags > ...

How could I do that? (I mean I cannot build a new category site for every tag in a hidden menue ... ;-) )

Or ... a good alternative would be to switch off breadcrumbs on tag-sites completely. But how could I do that? (I cannot address something like a "tag-site" in the modul-settings to switch it off there because there simply isn't any ...)

Thank you for any help :-)

Create a menu item in K2 pointing to all categories. Give it a generic name, e.g. "Content" and alias (content).

Clean your site's cache and check again.

Ok, i did that – now the breadcrumbs are fully shown but the problem stays the same: On the tag-sites there's some kind of random categories in the breadcrumb ... ? Here an example: www.burnyourears.de/tag/metallica.html

Why is it the category "news"? Why can't it be the category "tags"? (Or no breadcrumb at all ...?)
> Adding another point: There is no headline on these sites. And the title tag is not "Tags for Metallica" or something that would make sense here, but "Rock and Metal News" = the (wrong) category from the breadcrumb.

Strange... ;-)

Why not try the K2 breadcrumbs feature in the K2 Tools module?

The path you see there is basically the path you followed to get to that page. That's one of the visual/structural bugs that K2 has solved ages ago over standard Joomla content (in Joomla, if you navigate e.g. from the frontpage to an article which has no direct menu item, the menu item ID remains the same - that of the frontpage).

Well, I actually tried that .. with an even worse result (the tag is not mentioned anymore) :-(
See in the screenshot both modules activated – the first one is the k2 tool, the second is joomla.

Hmmm.

It seems to show the site name there when it should be showing the tag name.

What K2 version are you using?

There is no change that could affect breadcrumbs in that version. My guess is that it all boils down to your menu setup. Otherwise my suggestion to "Create a menu item in K2 pointing to all categories. Give it a generic name, e.g. "Content" and alias (content)." would show a different path in the breadcrumbs function of the K2 Tools module.
