A breadcrumb is a clickable hierarchical site structure to indicate a user’s location within the site.
Within the Dell standard breadcrumb, the home icon (tier 0) should always point users to their Dell homepage based upon authentication.
User’s homepage view can vary based on who the user is and their state of authentication. Examples include Dell.com home, Premier dashboard, PartnerDirect, etc.
Sitelets or applications outside of the Dell.com navigation structure that have more than one level can use a custom breadcrumb trail.
Users can click on parent pages within the breadcrumb to navigate upstream to them. The current page within the breadcrumb is always non-clickable.
The breadcrumb is not present on homepages because downstream site navigation has not occurred and therefore there is no site hierarchy to display.
Title case, 2-3 words maximum.
Do not combine actions in a label (exception: "Customize & Buy").
If standard labels don't fit the button's purpose, align label with the task the user is attempting.
Please refer to the Dell Technologies branding website, https://brand.delltechnologies.com/faq/#voice, for further information regarding call-to-action labels and usage.
The breadcrumb consists of a set of links that is structured using an ordered list.
A nav element labeled "Breadcrumb" identifies the structure as a breadcrumb trail and makes it a navigation landmark so that it is easy to locate.
To prevent screen reader announcement of the visual separators between links, they are added via CSS.
