Menu Trail by Path allows you to set the active-trail on menu items according to
the current URL.

For example, if you are at then menu items
with these paths will get the active-trail class on them and expand accordingly:

  • blog
  • blog/category1
  • blog/category1/article1

This is particularly useful if you want a lot of nodes to appear as children of
certain nodes/taxonomy terms/views/referenced nodes/etc., but do not want to add
them all to the menu.


  • 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.
