It seems to me that you can find your answer in the link you gave. Important is that your script/function works correctly. So test it before in the js console. However here an example, where you can replace the script with yours. Regards, Reinhard

EDIT: (25.11.) Thought can use it by myself, but then I want to have it sortable. So I introduced leading zeros in the extract filename -> function changed.

//Save this in the ....\Acrobat\Javascripts\  program or user directory 
//  as whatever.js to load as Add-In

//-> create a submenu as first position under "Edit"
app.addSubMenu({ cName: "Specials", cParent: "Edit", nPos: 0 }); 

//-> now create a Menuitem for the function you will execute
app.addMenuItem({ cName: "Extract all Pages to file", cParent: "Specials", cExec: "extractAll()"}); 

//-> state your function (extract all Pages with leading zeros)
extractAll = app.trustedFunction(function (){
var re = /.*\/|\.pdf$/ig;
    var filename = this.path.replace(re,"");
    var lastPage = this.numPages;
    var lz = Math.pow(10, (lastPage).toString().length); //calc full decimals (10,100,..)
    app.beginPriv(); // Explicitly raise privilege
    for ( var i = 0;  i < lastPage; i++ ) {
        var zPgNo = (lz + i+1).toString().slice(1); //calc actual, cut leading 1 = zerofilled PgNo
            nStart: i,
            nEnd: lastPage -1,
            cPath : filename + "_page_" + zPgNo + ".pdf"
