I am trying to modify the footer text inside the wordpress admin and also get my custom themes version number to show as well but my function is not working properly, I am still very green at PHP

~ Thank-you in advance!

function modify_admin_footer() {
echo '<span id="footer-thankyou">Developed by <a href="http://www.toolcart.com" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Toolcart Theme Version:</a>.</span>';
wp_get_theme()->parent()->Version;

    Try returning your span instead of echoing it.

    function modify_admin_footer() {
        return '<span id="footer-thankyou">Developed by <a href="http://www.toolcart.com" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Toolcart Theme Version:</a>.</span>' . wp_get_theme()->parent()->Version;
    }
    add_filter( 'admin_footer_text', 'modify_admin_footer' );
