Change Breadcrumb Home Text

Hi All.

I'd like to know how to change the text for the first link in the Breadcrumb/Pathway.  It currently lists your shop name, but for SEO reasons, my shop name is much longer than I'd like to appear in the breadcrumb/pathway.  So while my site name is something like "American Elephant Apparel, T-Shirts and Gifts" I'd like the breadcrumb/pathway thing to just read: "AE Shop: Section Name: Product"

Can anyone help with this?

Thanks.

In admin under the section Other Display Options > Show Breadcrumb Linktrail? > "start breadcrumb link with this text". In the text box next to that put whatever you want it to say.

No, that's not what I want.  It puts that *IN FRONT* of that standard breadcrumb.

My breadcrumb now looks like this:

SITE NAME: SECTION: PRODUCT

So if I follow your directions and enter "ABC" there, my new breadcrumb looks like this:

ABC: SITE NAME: SECTION: PRODUCT

What I want to change is the "SITE NAME" in the above example, but still have the "SITE NAME" appear everywhere else (i.e. page titles, etc.).

Make sense?

What I did to solve that was add something like this in the cpshop.images file

*||||: SITE NAME||||

It will remove it that way.  Just make sure you include the ":" before it just like it shows on your page. It will leave the ABC part and then the section>product the way you want it to.

The cpshop.images file is very powerful!

That worked great, Thanks!

I did it a little differently though, instead of activating the extra home link (ABC) in my example, I used the cpshop.images file to change it to say what I wanted (in the example changing SITE NAME to ABC).  That way, no breadcrumbs show on the first page (store home page).

Thanks again for your help!
