By default, WordPress only allows child theme overwrites on the first level of files – so the files directly under the theme folder.
What is that code you are trying to add?
Did the source provide any information on how to add it?October 28, 2020 at 8:36 pm #1508744Jill
that is some buttons i wanted to add. and i am coding it using html and css.
i need to add those code in inc>structure>header.php ( as i shown in red block)
so can i add or you can help from theme support to include that file as a part of child theme?
or it is not possible?October 28, 2020 at 9:36 pm #1508765LeoStaffCustomer Support
It’s not possible to modify that

Where would you like the buttons to appear?
Have you considered using hooks or widget area?
