Cannot pull header or footer when making stand alone php pages

    #8467

    I am trying to embed an html page into a stand alone php page, but I always get an error as if the header (or footer) cant be called:

    Copied from page.php

    <?php
    /**
    * The Template for displaying all single pages.
    */

    get_header(); ?>

    <?php
    /* Run the loop to output the pages.
    * If you want to overload this in a child theme then include a file
    * called loop-page.php and that will be used instead.
    */
    include("results.html")
    ?>

    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    I put the php page in the root directory, but get the following message when trying to access it:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_header() in /home/EXAMPLE/public_html/page.php on line 6

    get_header() is a WordPress function, not a native PHP function. So you can’t use it in a standalone PHP page.
