Hi,

I downloaded twentytwelve wordpress and extracted in the relevant folder and I get this error.


http://127.0.0.1/twentytwelve/

This appears to be a common error but I cant solve it as yet.
Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_header()

with twentytwelve there is no wp-admin.
How does this work when i download theme as do I ned to add this to a wordpress installation?

127.0.0.1, aka localhost, is your computer.
You cannot access that link from anywhere else.

Normally you would use the administrator interface to automatically add your theme.

Here's a guide for it: http://www.siteground.com/tutorials/wordpress/install_themes.htm

to install templates into a wordpress them you log on to the wordpress wp-admin
on the left click on "appearance" them "themes"
when at the top mid centre click on "Add New"
if you have the theme as a zip file then click on "Upload" and upload the zip file and activate it

Twentytwelve is a standard wordpress theme so it should already be there if not you can install by serarching for it and then installing it.

BTW your address 127.0.0.1  only works for you - we on the internet cannot access that link
