I’m trying to make some slight changes to a theme, but the code is a bit over my head.
The first place I tried to make changes was in /themes/minimalist/common/header.php. It being an HTML doc, I don’t understand why I can’t just add a simple line of html within the header tag and have it show up in the header on the website.
It seems like php functions are defined somewhere else and the header.php file is calling that content to create the theme.
To make changes to a theme, do I have to do it with php? And if so, where in the various application folders should I define my function?
