I was asked by a co-worker this morning if it were possible to have the Top Navigation bread crumbs show all sites within the path. As of right now it only shows 3 jumps from the site you currently reside, I am trying to see if there is an Out of the Box (ootb) way to set this up. Below is an example of what we see now - The Parent Site - Next Level - ... (accounting for 3 not shown sites) - Archives (current site)

enter image description here

I was poking around in the Site Navigation but could not find what I needed. I am working in SharePoint 2010 and have SharePoint Designer 2010 if that helps.

Any Assistance is appreciated!

You need to use this tag

<ASP:SITEMAPPATH runat="server" hideinteriorrootnodes="true" rootnodestyle-cssclass="breadcrumbRootNode" currentnodestyle-cssclass="breadcrumbCurrentNode" nodestyle-cssclass="breadcrumbNode" rendercurrentnodeaslink="true" sitemapproviders="SPSiteMapProvider,SPXmlContentMapProvider">

  • Thank you for this! I'm going to give it a try right away.
