Hello! I would like to understand how to replace some parts of the theme like the footballer with a child theme? When I wanted to do it, no changes had been made. I just know how to handle CSS as far as WordPress is concerned. Can you help me? Or another video topic?

What is footballer. If you can link what you mean I might be able to do a video on it to help out :)

Oh I haven't seen "footballer" 😂

I meant footer. A sample topic wordpress.org/support/topic/child-... .

I have the same problem, when I go to edit a .php file under a child theme, it either gives me an error or nothing changes.

Haha, that makes sense. The footer for Wordpress can be edited in either the parent or child theme file called footer.php. However some themes try to take priority of the footer (or don't even use the standard) which is why it may occasionally not work. I use understrap which works with footers!
