Breadcrumb default setting

Is there a way to change the default setting to show breadcrumbs to true for all pages in site?

(Sorry if this is answered elsewhere. I didn't find it addressed.)

Re: Breadcrumb default setting

Another question re: Breadcrumbs 
(This may should be posted in the developer forum ) 

Is it possible to NOT show the starting node on breadcrumbs (aside from the home page)?

I have two tiers of menus on my site. I want the breadcrumb to not show the first parent page.

For example, my sitemap structure is:

Tier One
- Section One
-- Page 1
-- Page 2
- Section Two
-- Page 3
-- Page 4
- Section Three
-- Page 5
-- Page 6
Tier Two
- Section Four
-- Page 7
-- Page 8
- Section Five
-- Page 9
-- Page 10


The SiteMapDataSource for my menus are...

<asp:SiteMapDataSource ID="SiteMapData" runat="server" ShowStartingNode="false"
StartingNodeUrl="~/Tier-One.aspx"  />

<asp:SiteMapDataSource ID="SiteMapData2" runat="server" ShowStartingNode="false"
StartingNodeUrl="~/TIer-Two.aspx"  />

Thus my main menu shows:
Section One |  Section Two | Section Three

The second menu shows:
Section Four | Section Five

My challenge now is to keep "Tier One" and "Tier Two" from starting their respective breadcrumb trails.

So for example, I need...   Section One > Page 1
instead of ...   Tier One > Section One > Page 1

Is there anyway to hide them? (or do I need to try a javascript hack?)

Sorry for the long post.  Thanks for any help/direction.

Re: Breadcrumb default setting


the best way to manipulate your breadcrumb is by opening up the layout.master for your chosen skin, and working with the settings in the <portal:Breadcrumbs> tag.  You have a number of attributes available to control the behavior, such as 


I haven't used all of them, but I'm sure you can explore each one, and see if it meets your needs.
