When I activate my plugin (register_activation_hook), I add a new specific page and a corresponding item menu in the custom menu. No problem here.

When I deactivate my plugin (register_deactivation_hook), I delete the specific page but I don't know how to delete the corresponding item menu from the custom menu ?

Any idea ? Thx

You need to mark the solution as accepted instead of renaming the title with (resolved) – Joshua Abenazer Oct 5 '12 at 11:00

WordPress automatically handles that if you force delete the page instead of thrashing it. The following function takes a parameter to force delete -> wp_delete_post( $postid, $force_delete )

Setting $force_delete to "true" is the solution. Thank you Joshua:) – Gilles Vauvarin Oct 5 '12 at 10:41
