SharePoint Breadcrumb V3 – navigate between folders

Breadcrumb is one of the most requested features by SharePoint users but unfortunately Microsoft removed it with SharePoint 2013 and to this day it was never reintroduced.

Last year I did a solution to bring back the breadcrumb to SharePoint without modifying the master page and today I’m releasing its third version with new features implemented based on the feedback provided by the users.

The new version is configurable according to your needs, includes support for folders inside libraries and supports custom master pages.

breadcrum with folder support

New Features

Based on the feedback provided by the users during last months I added support to:

  • Show Folders – this option will build a trail of your navigation inside libraries;
  • Hide Page Libraries – this option hides the pages libraries node from the breadcrumb and it includes multilingual support; (only supported on SharePoint Online, always hidden on SharePoint Server)
  • Hide from Pages – this option hides the breadcrumb in specific pages defined by the url;
  • Breadcrumb Element – this option allows you to define the DOM element where the breadcrumb will be added;

How to install the breadcrumb

The breadcrumb is provided in a WSP solution and needs to be uploaded to each site collection where you want to have it visible, to install do the steps below:

  1. On the root site of your site collection go to Site Settings
  2. Click on Solutions under Web Designer Galleries
  3. Upload and Activate the solution

How to configure the breadcrumb

The configuration of the breadcrumb requires a modification of a JavaScript file explained in the steps below:

  1. Open the site with SharePoint designer
  2. Go to All Files Style Library FabricUIBreadcrumb js
  3. Check out and edit in advanced mode the breadcrumb.js
  4. At the top of the file modify the breadcrumbProperties object according to the table below:
    var breadcrumbProperties = {
    	showFolders: true,
    	breadcrumbElement: "",
    	pagesLibrary: "Pages",
    	sitePagesLibrary: "SitePages",
    	hidePageLibraries: true,
    	hideFromPages: [""]
    };
    

    Property Type Default Value
    showFolders Boolean True
    breadcrumbElement String (id of DOM element e.g. “#breadcrumb”) “”
    pagesLibrary String “Pages”
    sitePagesLibrary String “Site Pages”
    hidePageLibraries Boolean True
    hideFromPages String Array [“”]
  5. Save the file, check it in and publish the major version

How to create a modified package of the breadcrumb

If you have multiple site collection where you need to install the breadcrumb there’s no need to modify the JavaScript file manually in each site collection.

To modify the original WPS solution follow these steps:

  1. Download and install the WSP Repackage Tool
  2. Extract the Breadcrumb_V3.wsp to a folder, if your wsp file is not recognized by a compression tool you can rename the extension to .zip
  3. Once extracted go to SharePointBreadcrumb_Breadcrumb feature Style Library FabricUIBreadcrumb js
  4. Modify the breadcrumb.js file
  5. Open the WSP Repackage Tool
  6. Select the source directory of your files
  7. Select the output directory where the WSP file will be created
  8. Provide a name to the custom WSP
  9. Click Repackage
    SharePoint WSP Repackage

    So I uploaded your solution package to my top level SPO site collection. Oddly though, SPO won’t allow me to activate it even though I’m the global admin, SPO primary admin and SC admin. Telling me I don’t have permissions. Which is, as I said, odd, since I have successfully activated other solution files….

    Hello sir, this is super awesome callosum, thank you! I activated on my site collection and it works as described here, but 1) I want to limit this solution only to document libraries. Right now it shows on every page (web part pages, regular publishing pages, etc.). 2) I would also like to move where the navigation appears – i.e. have it appear directly above the library, and not at the top of the page. 3) Right now the initial text that the top level of a library defaults to is the site collection name, while I would like it to default to the library name and skip the site name altogether. 4) Lastly, it cuts off folder names after a certain length, can the width of each breadcrumb node be auto and expand/collapse as needed?

    I could use Hide from Pages in the js file to add all the pages I don’t want users to see the navigation, but there are still the other things I noted above. I tried to throw the code in the js file into a CEWP instead and it came out funky. It works but the formatting is gone and folder levels appear vertically instead of horizontally.

    Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions you can provide!

      Hi Eugene,

      Thanks for your feedback and suggestions, based on that I did a custom version of the breadcrumb that only displays it on Libraries and a couple system pages(can be ignored with the option hide from pages)
      You can download the latest version from this link.

      1. It’s only visible in document libraries (only when you navigate to a folder)
      2. Not sure if I understood this one, if you can share an image showing were you want it to be visible
      3. Removed the site collection node, it starts with the document library
      4. Removed the max width for folder names from the css it now displays the entire library name

      When using CEWP make sure the css is being referenced. By reading your description seems to me the css was not loaded.
      As an alternative you can use a script editor and add the css directly inside of

      tags.

      To get this version working deactivate the current solution, upload and activate the new one, once the upload is done I recommend you to refresh the page using CTRL + F5.

      Let me know if this works for you.

      My best,

      João Ferreira

        Hi there…

        This is an excellent solution, thanks! Just a quick question though…

        The ‘standard’ V3 solution works for me. However, like Eugene, I ideally only want this solution to work in Document Libraries, and when I downloaded and activated V3.1, no breadcrumbs are displayed. I made sure I was in a sub folder of a library, but no breadcrumbs appear. Like I said, if I activate the standard V3 solution, I get breadcrumbs on every page. Any ideas? I’m using SharePoint Online.

        Thanks…

        Jason.

          Notice that this solution doesn’t work on modern document libraries, you will only see it if your libraries are being displayed in classic mode.

          Thanks,

    Hi João,

    This solution is terrific! Great job! However, when I activate the solution on my site collection it only displays the path to the current page. It doesn’t display any folder navigation. Could you clarify how specifically to update the js file so that it will display the folder navigation as well? Sorry still learning, so any assistance is appreciated.

      2 – Go to All Files -> Style Library -> Fabricuibreadcrumb -> css
      3 – Check out and edit the breadcrumb.css in advanced mode
      4 – Locate the rule bellow and modify the font size

      li.ms-Breadcrumb-listItem * {
      font-size: 18px!important;

However, when I log in as any other user the breadcrumb looks like the original format. I’ve cleared the cache and refreshed the browser and it still looks like the original.

      Yes this can be applied with custom master pages, if your structure is different than the original masters you can reference the id of the element where you want to append the breadcrumb.

    Hi

    Your tool is great. I somehow have a node too much now in my breadcrumbs when I open a folder in a document library. Even when I click on this link I get an error page.

    As an example: I have a subsite “Organization” and there a document library “Documents” with a folder “Test”.
    The breadcrumbs are now like: Portal > Organization > org (Site URL) > Documents > Test

            I am also seeing this issue on SP2016 on different browsers (IE, Edge and Chrome). This is such a great solution and would be great if it could work straight off in document libraries.

            I had the same issue the Breadcrumbs V2.

    Amazing script. It works very well. Installation is simple as.
    I have tried to customise a little and it works as expected.
    1 – I wanted to see the breadcrumbs on all the pages so I commented/removed the first bit in breadcrumb.js
    2 – I wanted to see the top site node so I played with the CSS file by commenting/removing the display: none in li.ms-Breadcrumb-listItem:first-child.

    All good.

    My SharePoint site is built with 2 sub-site levels. Whichever the version (v3 or v3.1), before or after my modifications, I see the following in the “Documents” section:
    Top-Node-Site > Level-1-Node-Site > Level-2-Node-Site > My-Folder-Name – All Documents > Level-1-Node-Site > Level-2-Node-Site > Shared Documents > My-Folder-Name

    Have I misconfigured my SharePoint site?
    Would you recommend any modification?

    Thank you in advance for your assistance.

      Hi Rémi,

      This seems to be a duplication in the breadcrumb structure, I wasn’t able to get this reproduced.
      Do you see the same structure in the URL?
      If you only see this in the URL Top-Node-Site > Level-1-Node-Site > Level-2-Node-Site it might be an issue with the breadcrumb code that I wasn’t able to identify.

    This solution is so elegant but in my case (Sharepoint Online) it refuses to display folders in a library despite showFolders being set to true. Breadcrumbs stop at the site level always. Folders are simply named and libraries were created of a simply template based on the Document Control one provided OOB with Sharepoint.

      Dug in myself. Needed an edit on the getFolders function. Firstly the DeltaPlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea tag check on my Sharepoint was not double span’ed so that allowed the initial if statement to pass and then I needed to use listURL as the base rather than site URL as I have several subsites that were polluting the breadcrumbs otherwise. Thanks so much again for a great solution!

      function getFolders() {
      if ($(‘#DeltaPlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea’).length > 0 && (document.location.href).indexOf(‘RootFolder=’) != -1) {
      //get nodes from url
      var siteServerRelativeUrl = _spPageContextInfo.listUrl;
      if (siteServerRelativeUrl == “/”) {
      siteServerRelativeUrl = “”;
      }

      var libraryLocation = unescape(document.location).split(“RootFolder=”)[1].split(“&Folder”)[0].replace(siteServerRelativeUrl, ”);

      var libraryNodes = libraryLocation.split(‘/’);
      var libraryNodeURL = _spPageContextInfo.serverRequestPath + “?RootFolder=” + siteServerRelativeUrl;
      $.each(libraryNodes, function (index, value) {

      if (value != “”) {
      libraryNodeURL = libraryNodeURL + “/” + value;
      $(‘#breadcrumbSite’).append(‘‘ + value + ‘‘);

      }

      });

    Also, my inteded use was within deep folder structures within Document Sets. Within the folders, the navigation works perfectly. However at the Document Set welcome page level I see the following:

    SiteName>Shared Documents>DocSet&RecSrc=>sites>SiteNamet>Shared Documents>DocSet

            Document Set Name Inside document library = Test

            Breadcrumb as seen when in Test document set =

    I’ve installed and activated no problem, but I’m not seeing the full breadcrumb.

    From the top level, if I go into a subsite, and then into a folder in that subsite, it doesn’t show the folder path in the breadcrumbs.

        Currently if I go into a subsite and drill down the folder structure, the breadcrumbs will display the following:

        01 Projects = subsite

        projects and Shared Documents all point to the subsite root.

        How can I hide projects > Shared Documents so it just shows:

    Hi.. thx for your .wsp. It works great.

    but, i have some issue. Your solution works great if the pages are on different subsite. Our requirement here a bit different, which is multiple pages are on the same subsite.

    Lets say, i have subsite TEMP, and i have 3 pages, pages1.aspx, pages2.aspx,pages3.aspx.

    When user browse to pages1.aspx, breadcrumb should show
    HOMEPAGE > pages1

    from pages1, user can browse to pages2.aspx, breadcrumb should show
    HOMEPAGE > pages1 > pages2

    from pages2, user can browse to pages3.aspx, breadcrumb should show
    HOMEPAGE > pages1 > pages2 > pages3

    Is it possible to do any customization through your code ?

      I’m not sure if I understood your requirement correctly but I don’t think it is possible to provide a breadcrumb based on the name of the pages. To create the navigation structure all the pages need to be in different levels, to get a scenario like this to work you will need to create folder inside your pages library to get a new item in the breadcrumb.

      Thanks,

      João

    Hi Joao,

    I have a question whether this solution could be used on premise SharePoint 2013 public facing site where I have implemented Microsoft PnP responsive package and also some customization to original Seattle master page?.

      Hi Lucky,

      It will work without any issue, if your seattle master is different you just need to reference the element where you want the breadcrumb attached

          Hi Lucky,

          Yes it will work, you just need to reference an HTML element to host the breadcrumb.

          Thanks,

    Hi Joao,

    I have this deployed and it working well. The only issue I am seeing is that it is displaying the original library name in the breadcrumb instead of the current name. We did this to shorten the url as much as possible. For instance, we created a library called “L01” then renamed it to be “Document Library”. Unfortunately the breadcrumbs display the original name. Is it possible to get them to display the new Library name? We are using SharePoint 2016 on premise.

    Thanks!

      Hi Joe,

      Thanks for your feedback, I’m planning the version 4 of this solution and I’ll add an option to show the display name instead of the original one.

      Thanks,

      João

    Will this work with on-prem Sharepoint 2016?

    Hello,

    Thank you for your script it is close to perfect for my case (sharepoint 2016 on prem). Things that I would like to change :

    – Do not display anything before library name (breadcrumbs get weird on subsites and I don’t want the site name to be displayed …)
    – Display library name when you are a the library top level (right now I have to click a folder inside the library for the breadcrumbs to show)
    – Fix chrome error that prevents breadcrumbs from being displayed -> /_vti_bin/client.svc/ProcessQuery:1 Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 403 (Forbidden)

    I’m really close to buy you some beers 😀

        This issue is related with the font that is being used by the solution but it will be fixed on the next version.

      Hi,

      Tanks for your feedback with about this solution, a version 4 is being planed and I’ll address some of the limitations you reported.

      – Do not display anything before library name (breadcrumbs get weird on subsites and I don’t want the site name to be displayed …) – Will add an option to hide site name
      – Display library name when you are a the library top level (right now I have to click a folder inside the library for the breadcrumbs to show) – This will be fixed
      – Fix chrome error that prevents breadcrumbs from being displayed -> /_vti_bin/client.svc/ProcessQuery:1 Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 403 (Forbidden) – I was unable to reproduce this locally, can you share more information about it

    Can you tell me what or why the breadcrumb is duplicating the parent link.

    For instance:

    1. PROJECTS
    2. SharePoint 2016 Migration
    3. Migrate-2-SP2016
    4. Shared Documents
    5. AOS Documents

    For some reason, 2 and 3 are duplicating in some way… except 3 leads to a broken link. Thoughts or suggestions?

      Hi Brandon,

      This was reported by other readers also, but I was not able to reproduce it on my environments.
      I’m planing a new version of this solution that will eliminate duplicated entries from the breadcrumb.

      Thanks,

      João

    Does this WSP work with SharePoint modern pages too or only the OSLO & Seattle versions? I looked at the modern solution but i’m unable to load all of the tools due to network or proxy issues. Are there any 3rd party applications that can assist with creating the desired breadcrumbs?

    Is there a way to only put this on certain pages such as subsites only?

      Hi David,

      There is a setting to hide the breadcrumb from specific pages hideFromPages
      Do you need the inverse of this setting and define only the pages where you want it visible?

      Thanks,

      João

    Hi João
    Thank you for the wonderful post.
    I’ve configured it in SharePoint Online. It works, but found few issues.
    It’ll be great if you can help me out.
    My site structure is – Root Site > Sub Site > Folder > Sub Folder
    After adding the current version it’s coming like below.
    Root Site > Sub Site > Sub Site > Folder > Sub Folder [Sub Site is coming twice]
    Is it possible to adjust like just Sub Site > Folder > Sub Folder ?
    Also found when I click on the last node, doesn’t show any content, although there are contents in that folder.
    I’m using Seattle.master and some alternate CSS for a menu.
    Thank you
    ananda

      Hi Amanda,

      I’m planning version 4 of this solution and one of the things that will be fixed are the duplicated items in the breadcrumb.
      To help me understand better the cause of the issue on your scenario please let me know the following.

      • Are you using Publishing sites or Collaboration sites like Team Sites?
      • Do you have minimal download strategy feature disabled?

      Thanks,

      João
