Staged pages in Advanced Menu


#1

Can I add a staged page to an advanced menu if there is a live page with the same name?

I am building a full site refresh and all of my new, staged pages will replace the existing live pages. When I add the staged pages to the advanced menu (they appear to be the staged ones as they have links like "http://www-my-site-name-com.sandbox.hs-sites.com/-temporary-slug-a123a123-1234-123a-ab123a1234aa") then add the menu to my templates, they link to the live pages not the staged ones.

Ideally I don't want to hard code the links using "URL Link" in the Advanced Menu because I want the links to point to the live site once I push the whole staged site live.

Actually what I'd like is a way to iterate over the menu items to build by own custom menu structure but that doesn't seem possible (unless I use HubDB, but then I have to hard code all the urls, so same problem).
