I followed the example given on the following page to re-enable some form of decent breadcrumb on a SharePoint (O365) site and all hell broke loose with the navigation.
Essentially the link describes creating a custom master page by making a copy of the existing default master page then removing the style="display:none" attribute from one element and setting the Visibility to true on the next server element.
Simple enough. I did that and set my custom master page as the Default master page.
It worked, showed the breadcrumb but then navigation took a dive showing me the classic and highly valued
Sorry, something went wrong message when I try to navigation to sub-sites, site settings
Examples of links that do work:
Examples of links that do NOT work:
- https://mysite.sharepoint.com/sub%20site/_layouts/15/start.aspx#//sub%20site/_layouts/15/settings.aspx?Source=https%3A%2F%2Fmysite%2Esharepoint%2Ecom%2Fsub%2520site%2FSitePages%2FHome%2Easpx (note this is Site Settings)
If I mess around with the URLs above that don't work by moving certain parts around it does eventually work.
I've reverted the Master pages back to the original, but it's not fixing the navigation issues I'm having.
After reading a bit online it doesn't look like there's a solution for this, which if that is the case is astonishing!
Anyone able to help?
