This is documentation about a configuration directive, which can be placed within Movable Type’s core configuration file,
mt-config.cgi, to customize the behavior of the system.
When loading a meta object, this directive specifies the max number of parent objects that can be retrieved at once. In this example, let’s say the max number is set to “100.” With the <mt:Entries limit=”250”>…</mt:Entries> tag, the total number of loading objects is 250. Since the max number of parent objects is “100,” the loading meta object will be divided into three sets (100, 100, 50.)
Note that if the specified number is too large, SQL may time out.
