SharePoint 2013 – show the breadcrumbs

In SharePoint 2013 the breadcrumb has been hidden from the Seattle master page.  If, like me, you miss this functionality and want to enable it again just follow these steps:

1. Launch SharePoint Designer 2013 and open your site

2. From the navigation on the left select Master Pages

3. Right-click on seattle.html and select Edit File in Advanced Mode

4. Locate the following line:

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

and edit it to remove the style="display:none;" part, it should then look like this:

<div class="ms-breadcrumb-dropdownBox">

5. Now find the following line (just a few lines down):


and edit it from false to true, it should now look like this:



6. Save the file

The breadcrumb should now be visible at the top of each page using the Seattle master page.
