Style Guide for Breadcrumbs
Breadcrumbs should be formatted as normal links. They should be separated by a space, the forward slash ( / ), and then another space.
The first item in the breadcrumb should always be "WKU" and should link to http://www.wku.edu. The breadcrumb.inc file is pre-formatted to include the WKU link. The last item in the breadcrumb list should NOT be followed by a slash.
