I just updated our master page on 2013 so that breadcrumbs will start showing. I clicked to have all sites inherite the master file which worked like a champ. I noticed though that any new site being created does not seem to have this master file applied. After doing some digging I realized that any new site has the publishing infrastructure deactivated.
Once I activate it the breadcrumbs show and everything looks good.
Is there a way to have this turned on by default so that any new site gets this setting or am I possibly setting up the master page wrong and that's why its seems to not be applied by default when the site is setup?
Thanks for any help.
