Did you say you set up a Child Theme?
Copy over the footer.php file from the Spun theme and paste it into your Child Theme folder.
You won’t be able to do this through the dashboard, do you have “FTP” access?
This Child Theme plugin you have doesn’t really do anything, it just creates a style.css file in your Child Theme folder. Its role is the same as your Custom CSS plugin.
(With your Child Theme plugin still active)
To modify the footer.php file you need to manually copy it and paste it into your Child Theme folder; then you can modify your Child Theme footer.php file.
Ask your hosts to help you with this if you don’t have access to your website’s files and folders.
let me log into my host and see if i can find my files
is this the only way?
okay i can FTP a file to my host thru the website just not the Home folder?
what do you think?
I don’t know what you can and can’t FTP, but it’s not something you can do in the dashboard.
i understand not via dashboard
. i logged in to my site on the host and i can see file structure – there is a parent folder but i don’t see a child folder etc
Current Directory: /usr/home/ravart108/public_ftp
and there is a parent folder here
Try to find the “themes” folder
