Just an update to the spree breadcrumbs to provide more intuitive usage of breadcrumbs. The products path and taxons path are seperate, and the breadcrumbs will also display the product name at the end.
An additional helper method has been added to provide a path to the last visited breadcrumb (either a taxon or the products path), to allow linking back to the last specific area the user was in. This is useful when a user adds something to their cart, they can be linked back to the last taxon they were browsing.
To install you need to add the following line to your Gemfile
gem 'spree_better_breadcrumbs' , :git => 'git://github.com/cnight/spree_better_breadcrumbs.git'
rails g spree_better_breadcrumbs:install
Enjoy! Noy you can use the new breadcrumbs helper, see below for an example.
Breadcrumbs now take an addition parameter, a product as parameter two:
<%=breadcrumbs(@taxon, @product, optional_seperator_string)%>
For backwards compatibility the optional separator string can also be passed as the second parameter, but doing so limits some of the functionality of the breadcrumbs.
To get the path to the last breadcrumb use:
<%=link_to 'back', last_crumb_path%>
