Additional Breadcrumbs

Additional breadcrumbs can be added preceding those for your site. This is commonly used on some general webpages, like the Faculty/Staff page including a breadcrumb to the Michigan Tech homepage or one of the CSA or COE departments including a breadcrumb back to the college homepage. This is only available in the _props.pcf file within the root folder for your site or the folder where navigation is restarted.
