Menu Trail by Path allows you to set the active-trail on menu items according to
the current URL. You can also optionally set the breadcrumb trail to the same.

Consider the following scenario:
You give your Post content type a URL pattern of posts/[node:title] and you
disable its menu settings. You then create a view for your posts and give it a
URL of posts and a link in the main menu.
With this module, when you visit posts/my-first-post, the Posts menu item will
have the active-trail class and (optionally) the breadcrumb trail will show:
Home > Posts.


  • Install this module using the official Backdrop CMS instructions at

  • Visit the configuration page under Administration > Configuration > System >
    Menu trail by path (admin/config/system/menu_trail_by_path) and enable/disable
    breadcrumb handling.
