Mobile always collapses long crumbs
Open, LowPublic

Description

On mobile we're space constrained and only show the first and last breadcrumb. Some apps like Phriction and Diffusion, this may be sub-optimal. Unclear what is a "good" option here, but maybe collapse the crumbs into a dropdown menu on the last crumb itself?


Original ticket:
This is kind of annoying on mobile, but there's no direct way to navigate to the parent document of a wiki page in Phriction on mobile, without editing the URL or navigating back to the root of the wiki and going through the hierarchy again.

FWIW, crumbs on mobile have always (deliberately) done this.

Yeah it makes sense in most places, but in Phriction it's the only way to access the parent document.

I like at least trying the last item as a dropdown. There are a couple of other similar "make UI elements work better on mobile by default" things too (T5752) that I sort of want to clean up, but holding these until after the redesign probably makes sense.
