It continues to revert back to the site url. I tried to go to wp-config and htaccess but It is not showing there. It is automatic information from creating the staging site. I am at a loss.
I did get an update from the host. I don't understand the issue here. SiteGround is one of the hosts you promote and apparently your theme does not work in the staging environment? ...
"Be advised that our staging environment is specifically designed to work on our hosting, where the staging will actually be configured with the live site URL, however you will still see staging1.domain.com in the browser.
Any changes on the staging URL will affect the staging and most probably will lead to issues where you will be unable to push the staging copy to live. For that matter we do not recommend to make any changes on the staging URLs.
That said if you wish you can clone the site to subdomain like dev.sfdancefilmfest.org and try to use the theme there. That way you will be able to work on the site if indeed the theme that you are using is domain dependent.
However for a staging site, you should not perform changes on the URL.
If you have any other enquiries, do not hesitate to contact us again.
