    hi guys,

    can you help me with this?
    currently i'm creating my own plugin in wordpress and when I reached on creating my own admin menu, I noticed that there is an extra sub menu created. For example I created a top-level menu called 'my menu' when I try to hover the menu a submenu is being displayed which is the same as on the top level menu. I would like to remove that one.

    Is there anybody who can help me. please.

    thanks for answering.
    I found out by trial and error just a few minutes before reading the complete documentation.
    In situations where a plugin is creating its own top-level menu, the first submenu will normally have the same link title as the top-level menu and hence the link will be duplicated. The duplicate link title can be avoided by calling the add_submenu_page function the first time with the parent and file parameters being given the same value.
