Semantic Breadcrumb Links (a.k.a. SBL) is a Semantic Mediawiki extension to aid in-page navigation by building breadcrumb links from an attributive property filter.

SBL uses a pattern match strategy to filter property usage (e.g. Has parent page) that ascribe the location of a page relative to its parent and provides navigational help by generating a breadcrumb trail.

This video demonstrates the functionality of the Semantic Breadcrumb Links extension.
