General Discussion



I am needing some assistance in creating a dynamic breadcrumb navigation for a new website.

Are there any good tutorials on treehouse to show this?

Should I use PHP, JavaScript, jQuery?

Any simple code examples would be great.

Essentially I would like the end results to look like this.


And once these links are clicked on they either disappear or become apart of the navigation.

Again, any help with this would be great.

The PHP course on TreeHouse shows a great way to handle dynamic navigation. Check out the Smells Like Bakin' videos. There's a lot to be learned in how to structure your site from those videos.

Also, for navigation, it is often wise to have your navigation within the html of the page so that it's accessible. See the videos on accessibility on TreeHouse as well, which should help you work out where to apply different languages.

Hi Logan, I've updated the comment above with some relevant TH links - let me know if those help? The Smells Like Bakin' videos are either part of the php one or html, I believe. I'm not 100% sure but I got to it through one of those routes.


If you could provide a link to these references that would be great. I do not recall that information be isolated and discussed.
