    I have a little PHP problem.

    I am beginning to learn wordpress. I have created my header.php and added it at the top of my index.php like this:

      <?php get_header(); ?>

    But I got this error:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_header() in C:\wamp\www\wordpress\wp-content\themes\mytheme\index.php on line 1

    But when I used:

      <?php include 'header.php'; ?>

    It worked fine. What could be the cause?
