Text Entry for Home – Joomla 3 Breadcrumb settings

In our last article, we showed you how to remove “Home” from your Joomla 3 breadcrumbs. If you wanted to keep “Home” but change the text to something else, you can. For example, you can have “Blog” show instead of “Home” in your breadcrumbs.

One of the Joomla 3 breadcrumb settings, Text for Home Entry, allows you to change the home text. This setting is defined by Joomla as follows:

Text for Home Entry
This text will be shown as Home entry. If the field is left empty, it will use the default value from the mod_breadcrumbs.ini language file

To change the “Home” text in your breadcrumbs:

  1. Log into your Joomla 3 dashboard
  2. In the top menu, click Extensions and then click Module Manager
  3. Find and click on your breadcrumbs module
  4. Find the Text for Home Entry setting. Depending on your Joomla version, it should be under either the Module tab or the Basic Settings tab.

    Enter a new value for Text for Home Entry, and then click the Save button at the top of the page.

    In our testing, we entered blog. You can see in the screenshots below how this changed our breadcrumbs:
