Fixing SharePoint Breadcrumbs to Remove the Pages Node and Display the Page Title Instead of the ASPX Page Name

If you are customizing a master page and you find that the breadcrumb is being displayed with the Pages node and the name of the ASPX page like this


and you’d like the breadcrumb to be displayed in the standard publishing fashion without the Pages library node and with the page title instead


change the SiteMapProvider from SPContentMapProvider to CurrentNavSiteMapProviderNoEncode on the asp:SiteMapPath tag.


<asp:SiteMapPath SiteMapProvider="CurrentNavSiteMapProviderNoEncode" id="ContentMap" SkipLinkText="" runat="server" PathSeparator=" :: "/>

    This only seems to work if under: Site Settings, Navigation, Current Navigation, you have Show Subsites and/or Show Pages ticked. We don’t what these ticked as we have loads of pages in the site that we don’t want displayed on Quick Launch and we don’t want to have to go through them all in Navigation Editing and Sorting marking them as Hidden.

    Is there a way round this?

    How can I do this without code? I am a new administrator and I don’t know where or how to put this code in. If someone could tell me, I’d be happy to do it. I get the Pages node and my company does not want that there. A little help please?
