Oh I haven't seen "footballer" 😂

I meant footer. A sample topic .

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!
