Display Specific Content If Post has_tag or Specific Tag

Snippets by IsItWP

Do you want to display specific content if post has_tag or specific tag? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to display post content if the post has tags or specific tag in WordPress.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s single.php file in the loop:

    echo 'this post has tags';
    }else {
    echo 'no tags sorry';

Note: If this is your first time adding code snippets in WordPress, then please refer to our guide on how to properly copy / paste code snippets in WordPress, so you don’t accidentally break your site.

Example: I want to display something if an article or a page has the tag ID 123. This works in articles or pages. But if I e.g. list several article previews in search or archive, the code always orients itself at the FIRST article of this list.
