Adding the_tags to theme not showing up (2 posts)

    I have an odd issue I can't figure out.

    I'm trying to modify my theme so it shows the tags for that post at the bottom of a post. I've added the function to the bottom of the post on the single.php page and it works perfectly by showing the tags.

    On index.php however, I paste the same exact code and it does not show the tags at all. No errors either. The code I'm using is:

    <?php the_tags('Tags: ', ', ', ' '); ?>

    Pasted here..

    <div class="entry">
    <?php the_content('Continue Reading &raquo;'); ?>
    <?php the_tags('Tags: ', ', ', ' '); ?>
    <?php wp_link_pages(); ?>

    I've added the word test after the function and it shows up on the home page where I expect the tags, so I know I'm modifying the right theme/page.

    Any thoughts? I'm stumped.

    The Template Tag, the tags(), must be used in The Loop. The 2.3 version of the WordPress 1.6 Default theme has an example you can look at in wp-content/themes/default/index.php.
