The sql_delete() function is used to delete records from an SQL table and returns the number of records that were all deleted. It has 4 parameters: -# $table is the name of the SQL table, -# $where, -# $serveur, -# $option. It is used as shown below:
sql_delete('table', 'id_table = ' . intval($id_table));


Delete the link between all sections and a given keyword:
sql_delete("spip_mots_rubriques", "id_mot=$id_mot");
One of SPIP’s standard periodical tasks is to delete old articles that have been put in the dustbin (poubelle), as detailed below:
function optimiser_base_disparus($attente = 86400) {
	$mydate = date("YmdHis", time() - $attente);
	// ...
	sql_delete("spip_articles", "statut='poubelle' AND maj < $mydate");
