API for the Drupal menu system.


function menu_link_delete($mlid, $path = NULL) {
  if (isset($mlid)) {
    _menu_delete_item(db_query("SELECT * FROM {menu_links} WHERE mlid = :mlid", array(':mlid' => $mlid))->fetchAssoc());
  else {
    $result = db_query("SELECT * FROM {menu_links} WHERE link_path = :link_path", array(':link_path' => $path));
    foreach ($result as $link) {


This doesn't work (but I think it should):

$path = 'node/281';
menu_link_delete(NULL, $path);

The cause:

$result = db_query("SELECT * FROM {menu_links} WHERE link_path = :link_path", array(':link_path' => $path));

should be:

$result = db_query("SELECT * FROM {menu_links} WHERE link_path = :link_path", array(':link_path' => $path))->fetchAllAssoc('mlid');

... edit ... never mind... I'm wrong. Should be made more clear you can never delete 'system' menu-links.
