$term(string|int|array)
The term name/term_id/slug, or an array of them to check for.

Examples

0

#1 Let's check if the current post has any terms in the 'video' taxonomy:

if( has_term( '', 'video' ) ){
	echo "The post has terms in the `video` taxonomy";
}
0

#2 To properly understand the previous example, it can be written like this:

if( has_term( '', 'post_tag' ) ){
	echo "The current post has tags";
}

So, we'll just check if the current post has the regular tags that WordPress uses by default (the terms in the post_tag taxonomy). You can replace this example with the conditional tag if( has_tags() ).

#3 Let's check if the current post has a term triller, which is in the taxonomy video:

if( has_term( 'triller', 'video' ) ){
	echo "The post has the term `triller` in the `video` taxonomy";
}
0

#4 Checking for multiple terms

Check whether post 59 is in the terms comedy or history, which belong to the taxonomy video:

if( has_term( ['comedy','history'], 'video', 59 ) ){
	echo "The post with ID=59 has the terms `comedy` or `history` in the `video` taxonomy";
}
