Getting Started with AEM Sites Chapter 2 - Creating a Base Page and Template: Problem With Breadcrumb Component

Avatar

Level 2

Hey All,

I just got to the end of Getting Started with AEM Sites Chapter 2 - Creating a Base Page and Template​ and everything seems to be working okay other than the breadcrumb component mounted in the video at the end of the tutorial. I'll share some details below:​

  • The tutorial uses core.wcm.components - 2.2.0 and mine uses 2.3.2 (I don't think this is the issue but it may be)
  • An image of whats happening to the breadcrumb component:

It should have a link to home and it shouldn't have a carrot symbol. Does anyone know whats happening here or can help with this?

Hey johna91​ I wouldn't worry about the `>` symbol. I think thats just an artifact from the new version of core components. In chapter 3 styles are added to format it.

Also just a heads up we are going to publish a 6.5 version (w/ 2.3.2 version of Core Components) shortly so be on the look out for that...

Hi johna91

Set the Navigation start level to '1' in the Breadcrumb component dialog box to get the link to home.

Hey Girishb,

I have tried this but I get a similar error:

The carrot symbols are not located in the breadcrumb in the video at the end of the tutorial, also the second level should produce a link to home. I do have two pages on that level and I'll place them below:

Hi you should have the "First Article" as a child of the Home page, in your screenshot you have it as a sibling. It should created beneath the Home page:

Install the package on a second AEM DEV instance and see if you get that result. It could be something in your AEM environment.
