In DokuWiki you will never get lost because you always leave some breadcrumbs behind which show you the way back.

DokuWiki can display two kinds of breadcrumbs: tracking and hierarchical breadcrumbs.

Tracking Breadcrumbs

This is the default. Breadcrumbs display a list of pages you just visited in a wiki. This makes most sense for pages with a flat namespace hierarchy. Tracking Breadcrumbs are prefixed with the word Trace: • .

The number of tracking breadcrumbs to be shown can be set with the breadcrumbs option.

Hierarchical Breadcrumbs

Hierarchical breadcrumbs are common in typical CMS driven sites with deep navigation structures. If your wiki features strict hierarchical namespaces, you might want to use these bookmarks. When enabled they are prefixed with the words You are here:.

Hierarchical breadcrumbs can be enabled with the youarehere option.



The breadcrumbs are stored in the user session. Template developers should make sure to provide space for both types of breadcrumbs by using the tpl_breadcrumbs() and tpl_youarehere() functions.
