>>> group.
>>> Imagine that you set the config to 25 items, you have a first group of

>>> ORDER BY DB_first_level ASC
>>> LIMIT 1, 3
>>> ) t2
>>> where 1 = locate(concat(DB_first_level, '_'), concat(s.SCHEMA_NAME, '_'))
>>> order by s.SCHEMA_NAME;
>>> (Here, I assume that the first level separator is "_" and that we want 3
>>> items of first level.)
>>> (If someone has basics of optimisation and have some idea to improve

>> Hi Hugues,

>> MaxNavigationItems applies at each level, not just the last one. For
>> example, set it to "2" and you will see two databases per page, two
>> tables, two columns, etc.
>> So if you remove this notion, to limit only at the first level, there
>> might be a display problem when someone has a big number of tables in
>> one database, or a big number of columns in a table.
>> The default limit was set to 250 but I'm not sure that it's a good idea.
>> Seing 250 tables when expanding a database is a lot of tables.
> Ok, I didn't know this.
> So could we imagine to have a new property to manage only the DB items?
