Tokens are small bits of code that let you integrate LightCMS's dynamic content management functionality with your website designs.  This section provides detailed information about our tokens and how to utilize them.

Breadcrumbs

Token
<$breadcrumbs/$> 
Purpose This token outputs a string of text links creating a hierarchical path from the home page to the current page.  You can use a breadcrumb in conjunction with a menu system to provide users with an extra level of navigation through your site.

CSS
  • The CSS class, "selectedPageRoot" is output in the link <a> tags surrounding the home page item.
  • The CSS class, "selectedPageParent" is output in the link <a> tags surrounding all other items except for the home page and the current page..
Example Usage
