I want to get current menu id and i was able to find out some solutions for this like
How to get current-menu-item title as variable?
How to get current page menu item name instead of full menu item list

I implement this code but it does not work when i have same term or page multiple time in my menu. For Example i have Asia (term) in my menu twice and it always return id of its first occurrence. I check this in source code and both these menu elements (Asia) are assigned with current-menu-item class. So in this case how i can get correct menu id with multiple occurrence.
Your help will be much appreciated. Thank you!

  • I'm not quite sure what you mean exactly. If you have Asia in your menu twice, both menu items will have the same $menu->object_id which is the page ID. Which "ID" are you looking for exactly?

  • I am looking for menu id not for the page id. Menus are assigned with different id's in back end and even on front end i can see different menu id in source code.

  • So if I have this correct, you're trying to get the Menu ID by finding a specific item in that menu. Would it be easier to use theme_location than trying to get menus by items, which could have duplicates in it?

  • @Howdy_McGee thank you for your suggestion but i want to get id of currently active menu. Above mentioned solutions work perfectly but when i have one term or page multiple time in my menu then it always return id of first occurrence of that particular term or page.
