How to display a navigational bar (breadcrumbs) ?*

edited July 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I found that there is a clear navigational bar on this page:
http://vanillaforums.org/categories/questions

something like: Home » Categories » Questions

But I can't find the navigational bar after I install vanilla forums on my webstie(I use the Vanillaversion 2.0.18.4by Mark O'Sullivan
The default theme for Vanilla.), Is it possible to show a clear navigational bar via admin panel configuration? I can't find how to config in the admin panel. Thanks.

    On vanillaforums it is custom.

    There was an error rendering this rich post.

    Thank you for your reply. I assume you mean there is no way to show navigational bar in the default theme, right?

    If vanillaforums it is custom. Could you tell me how to add this feature in the default theme? Could you show me some example code?

    Thanks

    Its custom code, so would need to be built for you. You could just create a new div id called subnav and build ul li nav list. Do you need it to be dynamic?

    Thanks for your reply, Yes, sure, I need it to be dynamic. For example:

    1 http://vanillaforums.org/categories
    the nav bar of this link should be Home » Categories

    2 http://vanillaforums.org/categories/questions
    the nav bar of this link should be Home » Categories » Questions.

    3 http://vanillaforums.org/discussion/20832/how-to-display-a-navigational-bar#latest
    the nav bar of this link should be Home » Categories » Questions » How to display a navigational bar?

    If we are on another question page, the nav bar should be changed to the other title. something like:
    Home » Categories » Questions » the other title

    Is this possible? If so, could you show me some example code?

    By setting sub categories up in dashboard, ie set up categories. Then the sub categories drag to the right slightly. This invokes breadcrumb display natively.

    Thanks for your reply, Could you specify how to do this? I only found "Display root categories as headings." option in the "Category Page Layout " in the "Forum Settings".
    But it isn't working. How to "the sub categories drag to the right slightly."? Is there any documents?

    drag the items in the dashboard click drag and move the categories around. it's no different than any other click and drag

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
