    A Slightly More Complex Example

    This checks if the post has any tags, and if there are, outputs them to an unordered list.

    /** @var string|false|WP_Error $tag_list */
    $tag_list = get_the_tag_list( '<ul><li>', '</li><li>', '</li></ul>' );
    if ( $tag_list && ! is_wp_error( $tag_list ) ) {
    	echo $tag_list;

    This will return something in the form:

    	<li><a href="tag1">Tag 1</a></li>
    	<li><a href="tag2">Tag 2</a></li>

    You can add classes and styles with CSS, as necessary.

    A Basic Example
    This outputs the list of tags inside a paragraph, with tags separated by commas.

    echo get_the_tag_list( sprintf( '<p>%s: ', __( 'Tags', 'textdomain' ) ), ', ', '</p>' );

    This would return something like:

    <p>Tags: <a href="tag1">Tag 1</a>, <a href="tag2">Tag 2</a>, ...</p>
