SOLVED:Breadcrumbs configuration

Hi all,

I'm trying to configure the breadcrumbs to be the location in alfresco rather than the user trail. I've researched and in the wiki it says its possible from version 2.9 onwards. (http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Simple_Customisations#Changing_Breadcrumb_Mode) I have version 3.0 and i have put the following configuration in web-client-config-custom.xml:


  <config>
      <client>
         <breadcrumb-mode>location</breadcrumb-mode>
      </client>
   </config> 

I'm not seeing any change, however.  It is still the user's trail through alfresco. For example, if i click Company Home & Folder A. Then i click Folder B from the Recent Spaces list, the Breadcrumbs reads Company Home > Folder A > Folder B rather than just Company Home > Folder B.

I have also tried configuring this straight in the WEB-INF\classes\alfresco\web-client-config.xml file, but no luck.

Am i doing something wrong or is this the expected behaviour of the 'location' breadcrumb? If yes, then what is the difference between Location and Path?

thanks for your help!
