Enable default breadcrumb for a document library in SharePoint 2013 custom master page

This SharePoint customization tutorial, we will discuss how to enable default breadcrumb for the document library in SharePoint 2013 custom master page.

If you are using the default master page (Seattle or Oslo) in SharePoint 2013, then you do not need to do anything, it will come by default.

Here we have faced the issue in a new custom master page which we have created for our SharePoint 2013 site. While designing the new master page, somehow they removed the tags from them.

Enable default breadcrumb for document library in SharePoint 2013 custom master page

The solution that worked for us is that we copy the below tag from the SharePoint Seattle master page (seattle.html) and put it in our mycustommaster.html page. Then we publish and approve the SharePoint custom master page and it started showing the breadcrumb for the document libraries.

<h1 id="pageTitle" class="ms-core-pageTitle">
<!–SPM:<SharePoint:AjaxDelta id="DeltaPlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea" runat="server">–>
<!–SPM:<asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="PlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea" runat="server">–>
<!–SPM:<SharePoint:SPTitleBreadcrumb
runat="server"
RenderCurrentNodeAsLink="true"
SiteMapProvider="SPContentMapProvider"
CentralAdminSiteMapProvider="SPXmlAdminContentMapProvider">–>
<!–PS: Start of READ-ONLY PREVIEW (do not modify)–><span id="ctl00_DeltaPlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea">Home</span><!–PE: End of READ-ONLY PREVIEW–>
<!–SPM:<PATHSEPARATORTEMPLATE>–>
<!–SPM:<SharePoint:ClusteredDirectionalSeparatorArrow runat="server" />–>
<!–SPM:</PATHSEPARATORTEMPLATE>–>
<!–SPM:</SharePoint:SPTitleBreadcrumb>–>
<!–SPM:</asp:ContentPlaceHolder>–>
<!–SPM:</SharePoint:AjaxDelta>–>
