menu_order for the current post or page?

If you have the post with an
$thispost = get_post($id); $menu_order = $thispost->menu_order;
WordPress itself does not provide a function to get the
menu_order, so you have to query the
post-Object. If you are outside the loop, you can use the above function, however inside the loop you could also achieve this by:
global $post; $menu_order = $post->menu_order;
The Menuorder is mainly used for Database Queries, as the Name says, do determine the Order of the output (if the menuorder is selected to be the order criteria).
