Breadcrumb for Confluence Server & DC

Breadcrumb displays the current page tree path with respect to the home page.

Clicking on Breadcrumb you can navigate to the parent page and all the way back to the home page.

When your Confluence space has lots of child pages organised into different parent pages, adding this macro will help you trace its position with respect to the homepage.

The Breadcrumb macro can be placed anywhere on a page.
