SharePoint & SQL Thoughts
One of my clients wanted to have over the set limit of left navigation (Quick Launch) links to allow ease of access for their clients. SharePoint 2010 has a default setting of 20 links for the Quick Launch. To increase this number find your site’s web.config files and make changes to the following SiteMap Providers.
        <add name="CurrentNavSiteMapProviderNoEncode" description="CMS provider for Current navigation, no encoding of output" type="Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.Navigation.PortalSiteMapProvider, Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing, Version=14.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" NavigationType="Current" EncodeOutput="false" />
        <add name="GlobalNavigation" description="Provider for MOSS Global Navigation" type="Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.Navigation.PortalSiteMapProvider, Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing, Version=14.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" NavigationType="Combined" Version="14" />
        <add name="CurrentNavigation" description="Provider for MOSS Current Navigation" type="Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.Navigation.PortalSiteMapProvider, Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing, Version=14.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" NavigationType="Current" Version="14" />
 
Add the following property at the end of every provider DynamicChildLimit="100” before   "/>"
There you have it, this property will set the Quick Launch to have about 100 sites and Subsites
