Hi all,
I searched through the forum for a topic to solve my problem, but no success.
My problem is:
When I search one ore more products on the frontend and click one of them (to go to product view page), the breadcrumb of the product is home/productName when it should be home/category/subcategory/productName

Is it possible to solve this?
I know that a product can be in more than one category, and Magento could get confused, but, I don’t know maybe there is a solution.

I know, this is really strange in Magento, that you cant see the category/subcategory that the product is related too if clicking an search-result, or enter the absolute url of the product directly in the browser..

It is intentional.

A product could be in two categories - so if you find the item via search - it won’t display twice for each category it is in, rather just once. So when its displayed, the breadcrumbs can’t display the category it is in because there is a potential for it to be in multiple.

I just think It would be a good feature to always be able to see what cateogry the product viewed is found, making it way easier to find more similar products for the customer
Maybe there should be one category that is the “head” category for products, even if its referred in severel, and that just that one is listed.
