WP_Theme::get( string $header )

Get a raw, unformatted theme header.

Description

The header is sanitized, but is not translated, and is not marked up for display. To get a theme header for display, use the display() method.

Use the get_template() method, not the ‘Template’ header, for finding the template. The ‘Template’ header is only good for what was written in the style.css, while get_template() takes into account where WordPress actually located the theme and whether it is actually valid.

Parameters

$header

(string) (Required) Theme header. Name, Description, Author, Version, ThemeURI, AuthorURI, Status, Tags.

Return

(string|false) String on success, false on failure.
