Products belonging to multiple categories, which category to display when view product

Posted: March 31, 2015 at 7:09 PM Quote #142849
If you have a product that belongs to multiple categories and are viewing it from withing Category A, then click on it. When you go that product's detail page, the category breadcrumb that it shows that product belonging to could be the other Category B.

It seems that the current logic is to take the first category that the product belongs to in terms of it's display order value. i.e. if the product is mapped to Category A with a display value of 10 and Category B with a display value of 5, it will show that it belongs to Category B, even though the user navigated to it via it being listed in Category A.

The desired result is that if you click on the product while viewing Category A, that on the resulting detail page, it is listed under Category A (the referring category and not the category with the lowest display order).

Is this a configuration issue that I am missing, or would this be an enhancement request?

Thanks,
Chad

I am still seeing this behavior in version 3.80. I went to the link to try to understand how or why this issue was closed, but I don't understand it.
In my case, I go to Apparel > Men > Sweats and select a hooded sweatshirt (this product is in two categories because it is unisex). The product page always shows a breadcrumb of Apparel > Women > Sweats.

I would like the system to pay attention to where I came from. If we can't that, I would like to know how to select the most appropriate breadcrumb (in this case I would choose Mens). Is this a function of the display order, the internal category ID, the sequence in which I entered the categories on the product, or what?

Any suggestions?
