wp_get_nav_menu_items() WP 1.0

Retrieves all menu items of a navigation menu.

Note: Most arguments passed to the $args parameter – save for 'output_key' – are specifically for retrieving nav_menu_item posts from get_posts() and may only indirectly affect the ultimate ordering and content of the resulting nav menu items that get returned from this function.

  • Global. String. $_menu_item_sort_prop
  • Static. Array. $fetched
Works based on: wp_get_nav_menu_object()

$menu(int/string/WP_Term) (required)
Menu ID, slug, name, or object.
$args(array)

Arguments to pass to get_posts().

  • $order (string)
    How to order nav menu items as queried with get_posts(). Will be ignored if 'output' is ARRAY_A.
    Default: 'ASC'

  • $orderby (string)
    Field to order menu items by as retrieved from get_posts(). Supply an orderby field via 'output_key' to affect the output order of nav menu items.

  • $output (string)
    How to order outputted menu items.
    Default: ARRAY_A

  • $nopaging (true/false)
    Whether to retrieve all menu items (true) or paginate (false).
    Default: true
