I am trying to put a custom breadcrumb on my On-prem SharePoint 2013 site.

I'm using the SPXmlContentMapProvider provider in my materpage:

<asp:sitemappath runat="server" sitemapproviders="SPXmlContentMapProvider" rendercurrentnodeaslink="false" hideinteriorrootnodes="false" ID="topBreadCrumb">

I created a simple layout.sitemap file:

<siteMap enableLocalization="true">
<siteMapNode title="" url="/">
<siteMapNode title="Policies" url="/OES/Policies/Forms/AllItems.aspx" />
<siteMapNode title="Procedures" url="/OES/Procedures/Forms/AllItems.aspx" />
<siteMapNode title="System Manuals" url="/OES/System Manual Training Materials  Employee Handboo/Forms/AllItems.aspx" />
<siteMapNode title="People Excellence Training" url="/OES/People Excellence Training/Forms/AllItems.aspx" />
<siteMapNode title="Forms and CheckLists" url="/OES/Forms and Checklists/Forms/AllItems.aspx" />    
<siteMapNode title="Records" url="/OES/Pages/records.aspx" >
<siteMapNode title="Corporate" url="/OES/Corporate/Forms/AllItems.aspx" parentUrl="/OES/Pages/records.aspx" />  
<siteMapNode title="Buslines" url="/OES/Buslines/Forms/AllItems.aspx" parentUrl="/OES/Pages/records.aspx" />    

Out of box sitemap nodes below this:

As you can see the record sitemapnode has children Corporate and Buslines.

I would expect the bread crumb to go like this:

Home > Records > Corporate


Home > Records > Buslines

However it is rendering like:

Home > Corporate > Records > Corporate

Notice the Corporate is below Records, even though in the sitemaps file Corporate is a child of Records?


Is there some alternate Css being applied to that site, I experienced such issue before where alternate Css was causing the issue, I had to reset the css to use the default css of the master page. After that I started re-applying the changes again.

  • I didnt find any CSS causing this issue, but I just fixed it with JavaScript – michael Sep 5 '15 at 13:47
