New Feature

Filter a list directly from a menu item

When you create a menu item to a list, you can choose to filter on a predefined value. (Modal picker)
For instance, you can filter on a category if category is a foreign key of your table.
This feature works for unlimited deep of foreign key.
Simply instance a filter on the concerned list. If you do not physicaly want this filter on the table, then delete it from your view and template file.

You can always filter directly by url.
ex: index.php?option=......&filter_category=4
