Function Name: get_tags

Explanation: The get_tags function is a WordPress function that retrieves a list of tags associated with a specific post or a collection of posts. Tags are a way to categorize and organize content within a WordPress website. This function provides a convenient way to fetch the tags assigned to a post or a set of posts, allowing developers to display or manipulate tag data as needed.

Usage: To use the get_tags function, you need to provide the post ID or a query argument to specify the set of posts from which you want to retrieve the tags. The function returns an array of tag objects that contain information about each tag.

Example Usage Code:

    $post_id = 123; // Replace with the ID of the post you want to retrieve tags from

    $tags = get_tags($post_id);

    if ($tags) {
        foreach ($tags as $tag) {
            echo '<a href="' . get_term_link($tag) . '">' . $tag->name . '</a>';
    } else {
        echo 'No tags found.';

In this example, we retrieve the tags associated with a specific post using the get_tags function. We then loop through the array of tag objects and display each tag’s name as a clickable link. If no tags are found for the specified post, a message stating "No tags found." will be displayed.
