I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'boss' is the definition.
(gaffer can informally mean a boss)

'right after error' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'right' could be 'r' (common abbreviation) and 'r' is found in the answer.

'put' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for gaffer that I've seen before include "Superior" , "Informally, a boss or foreman" , "man in charge" , "Old man" , "one securing large fish" .)
