OKay, gotta’ tell you about this handy little plug-in for WordPress. Excellent for those customizing WordPress sites.
Let’s say you want to add a new page but DON’T want it to show up in your navigation list.
You can download this WordPress plug-in, upload it, activate it and then exclude pages just by unchecking a check box in the page edit section for any page.
It’s real easy to use and takes seconds to set-up.

Okay, this is as much for my future reference as it is for you right now.
I’ve been looking for this solution to listing sub-pages navigation on both the parent and all the child pages. Anyway, don’t know how I missed it but it was right there at the bottom of ‘Template Tags/wp list pages’ all along (I assume).
Here’s the extract from that page. Enjoy and good luck with your WordPress customization!
