When clicking a database name in the navigation frame, the database should expand at least one level to show the names of tables or the "Tables" and "Views" submenus. Perhaps, even, Tables and Views should be expanded by default.

    This should also expand when a user switches databases via the "use" command.

    +1 here. +2, in fact.

    My preference would be to return to the 3.x functionality where the database and its tables were all you see in the nav list once a database is selected. Access to other databases was achieved through a drop-down menu.

    I'd also add the strong need to do this when using a database via a query switch (e.g. "pma/?db=somedb).

    It´s very unusable to expand the table tree every time. I would love to see an option to auto expand the table tree and see the other databases in a dropdown at the top of the navigation just like in 3.x.

    Please turn back a database dropdown in the navigation just like in 3.x.

  • Gave a try implementing this feature, see https://github.com/zixtor/phpmyadmin/commits/QA_4_0
    For now, I am also collapsing the previously expanded database, as to normally have a single open visible database, unless the user otherwise opens multiple.

    In 3.5 it was better. Please integrate it in version 4, too.

    THANKS
