    May I know in which file I have to add these code to change footer.

    add_filter( 'expound_credits_text', 'my_credits_text' );
    function my_credits_text( $text ) {
    return 'My custom footer text.';
    }

    You create a child theme and you would use that code in the functions.php file.

    Is the child theme the active theme?

    theme I m using is expound. So as I created a folder name expound-child (as showed in wordpress tutorial). then created file name functions.php . the pasted that code.

    Is that the proper way Jose?

    Sort of. You still have to create the style.css file that actually creates the child theme.

    From my knowledge I find the opening and closing tags are missing in your child theme's(I presume it to be) functions.php file

    Regarding the child theme, Please go through through the below link where members have clearly explained about how to create a child theme.

    I'm also using Expound on my site. Just as Vinn95 said, your code doesn't have opening and closing tag.... it should look like (In the Functions.php):

    <?php
    /* Edits goes Below */
    
    add_filter( 'expound_credits_text', 'my_credits_text' );
    function my_credits_text( $text ) {
    return 'My custom footer text.';
    } 
    
    ?>

    I found adding any code to functions.php file in my child theme, shut down the whole dashboard and didn't work at all, a backup replacement was needed, so if you adding new code to functions worked do let us know. I haven't used FTP upload yet to do this.
