    Lots of folks don’t like those fly-out menus. I recently set up a site where the board of directors absolutely hated the fly-outs because they (not being computer adept) they found them difficult to navigate.

    This is an idea that might work for you. Make a custom menu with no links and set it as your primary menu. Then make a custom menu with all your parent and child pages and put it into a menu widget. It will list your pages with their hierarchy.
