    Hello Admin,

    While working on breadcrumb I found that it renders some blanck <span> tags because of which i am not able to put my custom css on the default control, so can u tell me how to remove those extra annoying SPANs from the hierarchy ? or could u tell me how do we make Breadcrumb control to render ul-->li hierarchy which will be best suited for me.

    Or is there any other way to customize this control. Please be specific to answer with sample code as i m newly introduced to sitefinity.

    Hello Jigar,

    Sitefinity's Bradcrumb is embedded control ( Telerik.Cms.Web.UI.Breadcrumb). The span tags are added from the base class SiteMapPath which is ASP.NET control from where we inherit. You can remove the span tags by overriding RenderContents method of the base. You can use adapter. More information at

    Our control does not change the render method of ASP.NET SiteMapPath control.

    All the best,
