Magento Tip: Remove Breadcrumbs from Homepage

A very quick tip to add to the interwebs because my Google Fu failed to find it the other day when I needed. I wanted to remove the breadcrumbs from a single CMS page — in my case the home page (aka the front page) — in Magento. It’s rather easy to do as it turns out, but I had to work it out with my own brain because I couldn’t find it.

magento settings to switch off breadcrumbs for a cms page

  • Get the page up from under CMS | Pages
  • Open up the design tab from the left hand side
  • Add this xml snippet into the "Layout Update XML" text area under Page Layout<remove name="breadcrumbs" />
  • Hit "Save Page" and kick your cache if necessary


  • Be respectful. You may want to read the comment guidelines before posting.
  • You can use Markdown syntax to format your comments. You can only use level 5 and 6 headings.
  • You can add class="your language" to code blocks to help highlight.js highlight them correctly.
