Page Level Breadcrumb
Please enable a breadcrumb for navigating pages on SharePoint. Even if its just for Modern Pages... or Communication Sites.
We have our intranet on our main site collection (consisting of 6 sub-sites exc. the root site) and one of the biggest problems I come across from end users is that they dont know where they are. They clicked a link from the homepage or from a news article, its taken them to the page they wanted to go to... but they have no idea where that is.
The problem this causes is the user cannot find a way to navigate back... when the news page disappears from the latest news feed or the link from the homepage is deleted, they're stuck and have to resort to searcnavigation hing (which doesnt always pull back the result they need).
A solution similar to the one that Franck Cornu implemented on the PnP Starter Intranet would be great. It uses the metadata navigation taxonomy to display the logical stucture as breadcrumbs accross the top of the page.

Would be nice to have this option. It is really difficult to work just with quicklinks or the side / top navigation. especially if there are a lot of pages.
Over 3 Years and nothing new?
Why isn't this option enabled by default? We have people calling SharePoint "WherePoint"
I just asked my IT team for it for the same reasons mentioned here. I would be great to have it promptly!

After a couple of clicks, user is completely lost on modern sites. There's no way to know where I am regarding the site structure.
Breadcrumb control becomes absolutely necessary to avoid confusion on site navigation.
Also the possibility to brand the current page / section on the navigation (Underlined color, for instance) will be appreciated.
I totally agree. There are so many great features when you use Modern Pages, it is just the breadcrumbs that let it down.
