Breadcrumb will help to know on which page the user is now and to navigate. This really helpful where if you are inside a folder or subfolder in SharePoint 2010.

SharePoint breadcrumb is a very nice feature that is introduced in SharePoint 2010. If you use the Breadcrumb by following this link then you will have some problem like. At the end it will add Pages ->Default Page.

If you do not want that type means you want only Home -> Site1 ->Site1.1 -> Site1.1.1 without your page tag then follow below SiteMapPath.

<asp:SiteMapPath SiteMapProvider="CurrentNavSiteMapProviderNoEncode" id="ContentMap" SkipLinkText="-" RenderCurrentNodeAsLink="true" NodeStyle-CssClass="ms-sitemapdirectional" runat="server"/>

The solution is to change the SiteMapProvider from SPContentMapProvider to CurrentNavSiteMapProviderNoEncode.
