Add custom breadcrumb for pages that miss default breadcrumb – Magento 1

In default, Magento don’t have breadcrumb for some of its pages like shopping cart etc. In such situations, we can add a custom breadcrumb for such pages.

First we want to make a template file for below code snippet and then call it in other pages that do’nt have a default breadcrumb. That is enough.

<?php 
/**
 *
 * CUSTOM BREADCRUMBS
 *
 * Adds url breadcrumbs for pages that do not have breadcrumbs by default
 *
 */
 
?>
<?php if(is_null($crumbs)): ?>
<?php 
 
/**
 * NOTE
 * On some servers use ->getServer('PATH_INFO')
 * and on some ->getServer('ORIG_PATH_INFO')
 */
 
$urlRequest = Mage::app()->getFrontController()->getRequest();
$urlPart = $urlRequest->getServer('ORIG_PATH_INFO');
 
if(is_null($urlPart))
{
 $urlPart = $urlRequest->getServer('PATH_INFO');
}
 
 
$urlPart = substr($urlPart, 1 );
$currentUrl = $this->getUrl($urlPart);
 
//$controllerName = Mage::app()->getFrontController()->getRequest()->getControllerName();
//$controllerName = ucfirst($controllerName);
 
$controllerName = str_replace("/", " ", $urlPart);
$controllerName = str_replace("_", " ", $controllerName);
$controllerName = str_replace("-", " ", $controllerName);
$controllerName = ucfirst($controllerName);
 
?>
<span class="breadcrumbs">
<strong class="float"><?php echo $this->__("You're currently on: ") ?></strong>
<ul class="breadcrumbs">
<li class="home">
 <a title="<?php echo $this->__('Go to Home Page') ?>" href="<?php echo $this->getUrl() ?>"><?php echo $this->__('Home') ?></a>
 </li>
 <li> / </li>
 <li class="<?php echo strtolower($controllerName) ?>">
 <strong><?php echo $this->__($controllerName) ?></strong>
 </li>
</ul>
</span>
<?php endif; /* END OF CUSTOM BREADCRUMBS */ ?>

In my Magento installation, first I create a new php file cstm_brdcrmb.php with the above code snippet in app/design/frontend/my_package/my_theme/template/page/html/ and then call it in other pages.

<?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('core/template')->setTemplate('page/html/cstm_breadcrumb.phtml')->toHtml(); ?>

The above code is first published in Inchoo blog.
