    The last breadcrumb is integrated within the breadcrumbs
    + less vertical width
    The last breadcrumb is in the next line and displayed with a large font.
    + actual page topic is easier to read

    Thanks for your feedback and your arguments for and against each implementation.

    What do you consider to be the 'final breadcrumb' for this page?

    On this page it is for me: "Do you prefer last breadcrumbs as single outstanding element?"

    Then I would disagree completely with integrating the *page title* into the breadcrumbs.

    The breadcrumbs tell you how to get back to the root, not where you are.

    You are discussing what a breadcrumb is.
    The OP wants everything on one line.
    Home>Forums>Public Forums>Suggestions>Do you prefer last breadcrumbs as single outstanding element?
    Whether that is breadcrumb (one definition) or breadcrumb + title (another definition).
    The point is if it should be on one line.

    Breadcrumbs are a trail of where you have been.
    So in a forum, that definitely includes threads.
    In other software packages, it is *NOT* hierarchical.
    For a forum, it probably should be hierarchical.

    The main issue when including titles in the "breadcrumb" or "Breadcrumb + thread title" is that the title is so long it doesn't fit.

    I see the breadcrumbs as a tool where you are :)

    If you want to get back you use them for that, too. Or the popup tool. Or the header forum link.

    I hope that I can achieve (1) with a simple template change? In vb 4 you have to edit dozens of templates as in each is the h1-title line :(

    Yes this would be option (1) integrated in this survey.

    Of course the last element would be styled a bit different. But your mockup represents option (1).

    You want to save space at the top .... why does that help you ?
    (note: I often try to do that as well.)

    Main advantages are for me
    - saves vertical space
    - displays content more directly
    - simpler design

    Disadvantage is
    - title is not displayed prominently

    - titles have to be line breaked. Or the wholelast element is line breaked. To avoid this in most cases my current forum hides most category breadcrumbs.

    why is that important !!!! ?
    Do you mean you can show more of the page ? And that is what you feel is important ?

    Which arguments are more suitable is subjective to each community. We can talk about it in a separate topic.

    If you want to style your forum to look like that, you can do so by editing templates.

    However, the default style as shipped with XenForo will not be changed to this design.

    This source would like my option (1) as suggestion to include everything into one line.
    There maybe lots of other opinions on the web supporting the current implementation :) From a quick look I can just manipulate PAGE_CONTAINER to achieve option (1) in this survey. Only one template change. Great job devs (y)
