jQuery Plugin For Drop Down Breadcrumbs Navigation - Droplist

Droplist is a jQuery plugin that converts an ul, li based breadcrumbs navigation into a dropdown list to preserve horizontal space. The plugin automatically hides the overflowing elements of your breadcrumbs navigation list then makes them available to your visitor via a dropdown menu.

Basic Usage:

1. Load the jQuery library, jquery.droplist.js and underscore.js at the end of the document so the page load faster.

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="http://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/underscore.js/1.5.2/underscore-min.js"></script> 
<script src="js/jquery.droplist.js"></script> 

2. Load the required jQuery droplist plugin's stylesheet file in the head section of the document.

<link href="css/jquery.droplist.css" rel="stylesheet">

3. Create a regular breadcrumbs navigation using unordered lists.

<ul class="droplist" id="demo">
<li><a href="#">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="#">jQuery Plugins</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Most Popular Plugins</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Recommended Plugins</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Blog</a></li>

4. Call the plugin on the unordered list.

$(document).ready(function() {
$( "#demo" ).droplist();

5. Customize the drop down breadcrumbs navigation.

$(document).ready(function() {
$( "#demo" ).droplist({
overflow: "left", // left or right. Overlay on the left of right
ellipsis: "&#8230;", //  add an ellipsis at the end of the breadcrumbs navigation
dropicon: "caret" // drop down icon
