How to Hide the Breadcrumbs

Ignite displays a breadcrumb trail below the header and above the main content. The breadcrumb trail is simply a series of links that leads visitors back to the homepage.

While the breadcrumb trail can be helpful in larger sites, it may not be necessary for a smaller blog. To remove the breadcrumb trail:

  1. Visit the Customizer (Appearance → Customize)
  2. Click on the Additional Options section
  3. Locate the Show breadcrumbs? setting, and select the No option
  4. Click the Save & Publish button to save your changes

The breadcrumb trail will now no longer display on your site.
