Breadcrumbs are a type of secondary navigation whose purpose is to reveal the user's location in a website or app. Breadcrumbs allow users to retrace their path back to the original landing point and to navigate among various categories and sub-pages. Unfortunately, in the fairytale, birds eat Hansel and Gretel`s bread trail. Kind of like how WordPress themes hide by default the breadcrumbs on a website.
“Why did Hansel and Gretel get lost?”
“Because of poor UX.”
