Question: why won't my truck start

I had a weak battery and changed it out. When trying to start can hear just one click around the passenger side floor board where the fuse box is. If the truck sat for a day I would have to jump the starter then I could turn it off and on with no issues. I put a new starter on after having the old one tested. Had same issues with truck not wanting to crank so I wiggled the relay in the fuse box to get it to crank. Replaced the starter relay. Still having same issues. Maybe ignition switch?

Sounds like a wring issue between the ignition feed and the solenoid. Possibly he relay circuit.
