I just created a custom theme for my wordpress project inside my wp-content/themes/mycustomtheme, I added an index.php and a style.css file to the new theme but when I go to themes in my dashboard the newly created theme is not shown as an option. What else am I missing? Can anybody help me?
This is my style.css

/*

WordPress Themes typically consist of three main types of files, in addition to images and JavaScript files.

1. The stylesheet called style.css, which controls the presentation (visual design and layout) of the website pages.

2. WordPress template files which control the way the site pages generate the information from your WordPress database to be displayed on the site.

3. The optional functions file (functions.php) as part of the WordPress Theme files.

Example: -

Follow the path of wp-content > themes to arrive at your themes folder. You’ll see the WordPress default themes – twentyfifteen, twentyfourteen, twentythirteen – and index.php. Create a new directory for your theme; I called mine newwordpresstheme.

I am trying to do override a function which is inside a class in the parent theme via child theme function. Can someone give me the correct way to override parent theme function via child theme function? Is it even possible on a non pluggable class?

The class itself extends from another class and the base class is pluggable.

class Fre_ReviewAction extends AE_Base --> Class attempting to overrite
----------------------------------
if (!class_exists('AE_Base')) {
class AE_Base --> Base class IS PLUGGABLE?

I am making a custom plugin for wordpress and i need to create a page in the admin menu. I already have a file called menu_list.php with the following code:

function jps_mail_list_page_entry() {
add_menu_page(
    __('JPS Mailing List'),
    'JPS Mailing List',
    'manage_options',
    'jpsNews_mailinglist',
    'jpsNews_mailing_list',
    'dashicons-email'
);
}
add_action('admin_menu', 'jps_mail_list_page_entry');

function jpsNews_mailing_list() {
    echo 'hello';
}

Now, in the plugin page i have this:

function jpsNews_activate_plugin() {
    include_once(plugin_dir_path(__FILE__).'pages/mailing-list.php');
}
register_activation_hook(__FILE__,'jpsNews_activate_plugin');

Its not working. How can i do it?
