WordPress : How To Get Tags Of A Post By Post ID

Hello Friends, In this post I will tell you how can we get the tags for a particlualr post by that post id. When I was making one plugin IGIT Related Posts with thumb Image After posts , I need to get the tags from a post by post id to reterive related posts by matching post tag and post title, I search about this and I found so many functions to get tags but in wordpress codex every function to get tags must be come in foreach loop, So I though to write new query to get tags list for post id, But before doing that I just tried every function by passing Post id in it to just confirm and by luck I got one function by which we can get tags for a post by post id.


I got this function in wordpress codex but in worpress codex they said that this function must be used in foreach loop to get tags list, But as I said I have tried function by passing id to it and this function worked for me, So If you want tags for a particular post by post id then simply use get_the_tags function and pass post id as argument.

  • Thank you for sharing this material there
    I'm always following her materials required

  • I’ve amended the Codex to reflect the $id parameter.

    this is BS – this does NOT work. It’s funny how there is a group of about 4 apparent wp devs who all seem to come out with the exact “revelation” at the same time?
