Description

WordPress 1.5.1.3 Strayhorn

Visit the url

www.yourwebsite.com/BLOG_DIRECTORY/wp-content/themes/THEME_DIRECTORY/

or

www.yourwebsite.com/blog/wp-content/themes/blix/page.php index.php etc.

and you get

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: get_header()

Most blogs seem to list their theme directory in the source in the css link so joe naughty user can annoy.

I don't have this error following your steps on changeset [2729]

Everything looks normal.

Checked many other wordpress blogs on the net. So far of 14 checked only two didn't give the error.

A quick look at any of main files in the templates you can download you'll see they start with get_header(). The files are expected to be called from the wp main directory but if you access them directly they obviously will give out an error as the function doesnt exist.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is to be expected. You're not meant to call themes directly.
