Term Menu Order

Description

This plugin is intended as an aid to theme and plugin developers.

The purpose of the plugin is to allow arbitrary sorting of terms, similar to pages. This allows queries that
fetch terms to use ‘menu_order’ as a sort order. Here’s an example:

$terms = get_terms('category', array( 'orderby' => 'menu_order' ) );
