I'm looking to show the tags of a post within a widget. I know this is hard because it's outside of the loop, but has it been done, is there one available?
Tags can be shown outside the Post loop using the global functions.
Step 1 : Get a PHP Code Widget (this solved many problems)
Step 2 : Place the Code
<?php the_tags(); ?> in widget and Save.
Check Tags Documentation to tweak display order.
All done just rock and roll.

Then you would throw the code into a widget.
