SharePoint 2013 Branding: Show the folder breadcrumb navigation

Where did the breadcrumb navigation go in SharePoint 2013? It’s still there, it’s just hidden.

To show the folder breadcrumbs on your site follow these steps:

1. Download a copy of the seattle.master

2. Open the file and search for:

<div class="ms-breadcrumb-dropdownBox" style="display:none;">

3. Delete the attribute style="display:none;" from the div.ms-breadcrumb-dropdownBox, and set the attribute Visible to true in the inner PopoutMenu

4. Save file with a new name. Upload it to the Masterpage Gallery and publish it.

5. Change the default masterpage to your new masterpage. (Site Settings > Look and Feel > Master page)

6. Done!
