      Description

      Doing some testing today i found out that the Solr Search facets, Max limit has a documentation issue. It states that
      "The maximum number of terms that should be returned to the user. For example, if there are 100 possible subjects in a faceted result you may wish to only return the top 10."
      If you leave that field empty (which weirdly is allowed!) you end with a 404 code in Solr, that sounds pretty much like a bug since what it should happen there is that the default Solr limit *(100) should kick in, but that is probably another ticket.,
      If you put there 0, you end with 0 facets (not very useful), and what i needed was "all facets, whatever we have there). Well, if you add -1, as documented in the Solr Website (https://wiki.apache.org/solr/SimpleFacetParameters#facet.limit) then every facet is shown.

      WE should document that as a valid option in the help text for that field. Useful and kinda needed

      Islandora Interest Group ? what you all think?
