I'm attempting to setup a static wordpress site. This website has some pages links on the top, some on left while some in footer. To groups these pages i produced three other pages Top, Left, Footer making all top pages child of page Top, left pages child of page Left and same for footer. Used to do this to ensure that i'm able to choose top pages as kids of top to find the best navigation, left pages as kids of left for left navigation. Example:

<?php wp_list_pages('child_of=top'); ?>

Now while developing a page if make if growing up of Top it seems on the top, if child of left it seems on left. But there's an issue each connect to this child page also offers its parent title it's i.e sitename.com/Top/pagename.

My questions are:

1 - Can One remove Parent title from slug ? 2 - Can there be every other method to do this or sound practice i have to admit??

Note: I don't want to hard code page ids
