I regularly find a need to add to or alter functions.php files (often in child theme or via plugins) but i cant find any clarity about the following:
This could seem like an odd question but I am keen to understand it once and for all... why are there sometimes php closing tags and other times these are left out?
I have looked through various functions.php files and I cant see any pattern to why some have closing tags and others don’t.
FrameMarket's functions.php file does contain opening and closing tags
Can you advise please. Should I close
<?php if i create a new functions.php in my child theme or does it just not matter???
