How To Add Breadcrumbs In Shopify-Free Without APP-[2024]

Welcome back to WebSensePro for another exciting tutorial. Today, I’m going to walk you through the process of adding breadcrumbs to your Shopify store without relying on any third-party apps. Yes, you heard it right! You can achieve this seamlessly by simply following the steps outlined in this tutorial.

Step 1: Accessing Your Shopify Store Backend

First things first, let’s head over to the backend of your Shopify store. Close any unnecessary tabs and navigate to “Online Store.”

Step 2: Installing the Dawn Theme

If you haven’t already installed the Dawn theme, now’s the time to do it. I recommend using the latest version, which at the time of this tutorial is 13.0.1. Click on the “Add” button and let the theme install.

Step 3: Editing Your Theme Code

Once the Dawn theme is installed, click on the “Publish” button and then select “Edit Code” from the dropdown menu.

Step 4: Adding the Breadcrumb Section

In the code editor, navigate to the “Sections” folder and create a new file named “breadcrumb.liquid.” Replace any existing code in this file with the code provided in the description.

Step 5: Integrating Breadcrumbs into Your Theme

Next, locate the “theme.liquid” file and search for “header-group.” Below this section, insert the code snippet to include the breadcrumb section.

Step 6: Customizing Your Breadcrumbs

Save your changes and head over to the “Customize Theme” section. Here, you’ll find the newly added breadcrumb navigation. Customize it according to your preferences, such as enabling/disabling icons, changing colors, or specifying on which pages the breadcrumbs should appear.

Step 7: Final Touches and Testing

After customizing your breadcrumbs, don’t forget to save your settings. Now, navigate to your product page to ensure that the breadcrumbs are displaying correctly.

Conclusion
And there you have it! By following these simple steps, you’ve successfully added stylish breadcrumbs to your Shopify store without the need for any external apps. Feel free to subscribe to our channel for more helpful tutorials and updates.
