Changing the "Latest News" text on ticker

Hello Colorlib,
I’ve been trying to change the “news” word with CSS and even tried adding a PHP filter but success.
For the moment I simply edited the “news-ticker.php” but of course that is not the best practice.
Could you please help me come up with a way to change this word “News” to Testimonies" without missing the changes when the theme gets updated?
I’ll appreciate that.
Looking forward to hear from you.
Happy New Year

Hey there,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

You can do this two ways.

  1. Use this plugin to find and replace text: Real-Time Find and Replace – WordPress plugin |

  2. Create a child theme and make an edit to the news-ticker.php i the child theme.
    Use this plugin to create a child theme.
    Child Theme Configurator – WordPress plugin |

Best regards,

Thank you very much for your response.
This seems to be the perfect solution!
In your opinion what would be better?
( I wonder if the “real-time-find-and-replace” plugin will cause the site to slow down.
On the other hand, what if one day you update the news-ticker.php and my child theme is still overwriting it with the old modified version?)

Hello there,

The plugin will not slow down the site much if at all because the plugin is not doing anything complicated on the back-end and if the theme is updated it would only change the parent theme not the child.

Best Regards,
