You can use Breadcrumb’s divider option using a custom CSS property named bs-breadcrumb-divider. Also, you can quote out a particular symbol to generate a separation which indicates a divider.


For example,

<nav style="--bs-breadcrumb-divider: '>';" >

  <ol class="breadcrumb">

    <li class="breadcrumb-item"><a href="#">Contact Us</a></li>

    <li class="breadcrumb-item active" aria-current="page">About Us </li>




In the above-given example, the symbol “>” represents the navigating symbol between Contact Us and About Us page. But if you don’t include any specific quote then the by default symbol is ‘/’. The key elements such as aria-current depict the current page which is linked to the last item of the set
