Any advice appreciated.

  • Where do you put the files? Is it in wp-content/themes/your-theme?

You also need to create header.php, sidebar.php, footer.php for custom theme.


It doesn't look like you've built a full theme yourself from what you've posted so perhaps you could add more information to your question.

But, I think you should start by having a read here to check that you're doing it correctly: https://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development then post back again if you're still having problems.

Then copy the existing theme to a new folder and start modifying them to get a feel for how they work, then try and build your own.

And then when you're feeling more familiar with how the work, check out the information on child themes here: https://developer.wordpress.org/themes/advanced-topics/child-themes/
