256 char limitation on Bread Crumb

  Asked By: Bob    Date: Mar 31    Category: MOSS    Views: 1437

With regard to MOSS

1) Is there a 256 char limitation on Bread Crumb?
2) How do I change bread crumb display names? For example my
breadcrumb shows "Intranet > WSS" which I want to expand as "Intranet
> Windows SharePoint Services".

I thought that the character limit was on the URL.

Change the display  name for each site:

1. Goto Site Settings from the Site Actions menu.
2. Under the Look and Feel section, choose Title, description and icon
3. Change the display name as desired.

Tried your suggestion. But that changes only the site title /
description and not the display  name of the bread  crumb. For example
if I have a folder/document name as "WWW", I would like the bread
crumb to display "ShareDocuments > World Wide Web". ie., folder name
should be retained shorter to accomodate 260 char  URL limitation  but
bread crumb  should display expanded names. How can I achieve this?
Is there any custom web part to achieve this?
