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?

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:) Oct 5, 2012 at 10:41
