    This doesn’t need to be in The Loop.

    $post_tags = get_the_tags( 24 );
    
    print_r( $post_tags );
    
    /*
    This above prints the tag objects for post ID #24 (if post has any tags):
    Array

    Execute code based on different tag values:
    This code displays different HTML for different tags. Add elseif statements as needed.

    <?php
    $post_tags = get_the_tags();
    foreach( $post_tags as $tag) :
    	if ( $tag->name === 'tag-1' ) :
    ?>
    
    <p>Display HTML for posts tagged with 'tag-1'.</p>
    
    <?php
    	elseif ( $tag->name === 'tag-2' ) :
    ?>
    
    <p>Display HTML for posts tagged with 'tag-2'.</p>
    
    <?php
    	else :
    	// Post has neither tag, do nothing.
    	endif; 
    endforeach;
    ?>
