This is really a few questions in one post, but I'd prefer to ask this way as they are both related:
Question 1: In Sharepoint Foundation I'd like to move the breadcrumbs into a visible area on the content page
<asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="PlaceHolderMain" runat="server"> </asp:ContentPlaceHolder>
Would the above placehoder be the best area to use? as it does not seem to display it once placed in this area.
I have also placed the breadcrumbs in multiple areas of a sites page(which I am able to view), however once I've moved the sites breadcrumbs: (the below code)
<asp:contentplaceholder id="PlaceHolderGlobalNavigation" runat="server"> <SharePoint:PopoutMenu runat="server" ID="GlobalBreadCrumbNavPopout" IconUrl="/_layouts/images/fgimg.png" IconAlt="Navigate Up" IconOffsetX=0 IconOffsetY=112 IconWidth=16 IconHeight=16 AnchorCss="s4-breadcrumb-anchor" AnchorOpenCss="s4-breadcrumb-anchor-open" MenuCss="s4-breadcrumb-menu"> <div class="s4-breadcrumb-top"> <asp:Label runat="server" CssClass="s4-breadcrumb-header" Text="This page location is:" /> </div> <asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="PlaceHolderTitleBreadcrumb" runat="server"> <SharePoint:ListSiteMapPath runat="server" SiteMapProviders="SPSiteMapProvider,SPContentMapProvider" RenderCurrentNodeAsLink="false" PathSeparator="" CssClass="s4-breadcrumb" NodeStyle-CssClass="s4-breadcrumbNode" CurrentNodeStyle-CssClass="s4-breadcrumbCurrentNode" RootNodeStyle-CssClass="s4-breadcrumbRootNode" NodeImageOffsetX=0 NodeImageOffsetY=353 NodeImageWidth=16 NodeImageHeight=16 NodeImageUrl="/_layouts/images/fgimg.png" RTLNodeImageOffsetX=0 RTLNodeImageOffsetY=376 RTLNodeImageWidth=16 RTLNodeImageHeight=16 RTLNodeImageUrl="/_layouts/images/fgimg.png" HideInteriorRootNodes="true" SkipLinkText="" /> </asp:ContentPlaceHolder> </SharePoint:PopoutMenu> <div class="s4-die"> <asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="PlaceHolderGlobalNavigationSiteMap" runat="server" Visible="false"> </asp:ContentPlaceHolder> </div>
It does not show up on any of the subsites (I assume they are inheriting another type of masterpage)
Id also like to reformat the breadcrumbs into a vertical menu as opposed to the windows explorer type style being currently used.
Waldek covers this in his post here but is there a way to list them horizontally
I've found a few links which seem to point in some sort of direction but thought I'd get some advice before attempting either one (of the links below) and find out which solution would be best.
Also has anyone attempted to use the Mavenation solution at the following link: http://blog.mastykarz.nl/create-sharepoint-breadcrumbs-mavention-simple-sitemappath/
and is it a good idea to use it if you have templates which require 'redeployability'?
It would be appreciated if anyone could assist.
