That's called "breadcrumbs".

There are several methods to use, depending on how your pages
are being generated. Here's the Google search for PHP Breadcrumbs:

Thanks, mlseim.

I do a little bit understanding what this is and how this is created.
But may I asked what & why this is named. I got a text written as:



Where does the term "breadcrumb" come from?

If you remember the story of Hansel and Grettel, a trail of breadcrumbs was used by the characters so they could find their way home. This navigation style is similar -- not only do you know where you are in your Web page, you also know how to retrace your steps.

Thanks,

Eric,
