Fix Breadcrumbs Markup on Joomla site

Fix Breadcrumbs Markup on Joomla site

You may have noticed that Google Search Console recently added a New Structured Data Report for Breadcrumbs in order to allow users to evaluate whether their breadcrumb markup has been implemented correctly.

The solution is to go to template code and make an override for mod_breadcrumbs
