I'm posting here rather than opening a support ticket as I could do with a quick response and hopefully someone already has a solution.
I created a breadcrumb control using the sample code within the forum, since upgrading to 4.1 it no longer displays.
My code is as follows:
<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Breadcrumb.ascx.cs" Inherits="Controls_Breadcrumb" %>
PathSeparator=" > "
OnItemCreated="Breadcrumbs_ItemCreated" NodeStyle-Font-Bold="true" NodeStyle-Font-Size="12px"
NodeStyle-ForeColor="#737373" CurrentNodeStyle-ForeColor="#1183dd" NodeStyle-Font-Underline="false"
PathSeparatorStyle-Font-Bold="true" PathSeparatorStyle-Font-Size="10px" PathSeparatorStyle-ForeColor="#737373" CssClass="breadcrumbControl">
public partial class Controls_Breadcrumb : System.Web.UI.UserControl
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
protected void Breadcrumbs_ItemCreated(object sender, SiteMapNodeItemEventArgs e)
if ((e.Item.ItemIndex == 0) && (e.Item.ItemType == SiteMapNodeItemType.Root) && (e.Item.Controls.Count > 0))
if (e.Item.Controls is HyperLink)
((HyperLink)e.Item.Controls).Text = "Home";
((HyperLink)e.Item.Controls).ToolTip = "";
else if (e.Item.ItemType == SiteMapNodeItemType.Current)
if (e.Item.Controls is Literal)
Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.PageSiteNode pageSiteNode = (Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.PageSiteNode)e.Item.SiteMapNode;
Telerik.Sitefinity.Modules.Pages.PageManager manager = new Telerik.Sitefinity.Modules.Pages.PageManager();
Telerik.Sitefinity.Pages.Model.PageNode pageNode = manager.GetPageNode(pageSiteNode.Id);
((Literal)e.Item.Controls).Text = pageNode.Title.Value;
Can anyone advise how to get it working again?
I have to admit I am really disappointed so far with Sitefinity 4 although the technical team have been very helpful, we have had to delay projects and with all the various bugs that were in it orginally, missing functionality from v3.7 and now all these new bugs in 4.1. We are starting to look bad in front of our clients and are also losing money spending time having to re-address issues.
Sitefinity looks head and shoulders above other CMS's out there with it's professional UI etc... but it just doesn't work correctly. We have two quotes with clients to build new systems using Sitefinity 4 but I am starting to regret basing them on SItefinity and have no option but to evaluate other CMS's with Umbraco and Drupal top of the list.
We have been using Telerik products for the past couple of years in our company and work with the RadControls daily which are great but Sitefinity 4 has been such a disappointment.
Hopefully things will improve shortly.
