Drupal 7 Breadcrumbs

Drupal creates breadcrumbs based off of menus. These 5 steps will explain the easist way to create accurate breadcrumbs:

  1. Create a menu specifically for containing/listing links to be identified as breadcrumb items.Example of a Breadcrumb Menu
  2. Add a menu link for each node (page) that will need a breadcrumb on it.
  3. Order the links and indent them to show the path order (level) for each node.Example of Breadcrumb hierarchy
  4. Enable the menu in Configure - Menu breadcrumb (make sure it is the only menu that is checked.Example of a breadcrumb enabled menu
  5. Leave the menu block unassigned. i.e. don't assign the menu block to anywhere on the site, leave the region set to "None" by going to Structure - Blocks.Example of setting the menu region to "none."

This example menu would create these breadcrumbs:
