1 menu.admin.inc menu_overview_form_submit($form, &$form_state)

Submit handler for the menu overview form.

This function takes great care in saving parent items first, then items underneath them. Saving items in the incorrect order can break the menu tree.

  // When dealing with saving menu items, the order in which these items are
  // saved is critical. If a changed child item is saved before its parent,
  // the child item could be saved with an invalid path past its immediate
  // parent. To prevent this, save items in the form in the same order they
  // are sent by $_POST, ensuring parents are saved first, then their children.
