    INSTALLED_APPS = [
        'django.contrib.admin',
        'django.contrib.auth',

        'django.contrib.sessions',
        'django.contrib.messages',

    Add TaggableManager in your post, blog, article modal




    from django.db import models
    from django.utils.timezone import now 
    from taggit.managers import TaggableManager
      
    class Post(models.Model):
        postid = models.AutoField(primary_key=True)
        title = models.CharField(max_length=255)
        content = models.TextField()
        author = models.CharField(max_length=100
        postauthor = models.ForeignKey(User, on_delete=models.CASCADE)
        slug = models.SlugField(unique=True)
        category = models.CharField(max_length=200
        timestamp = models.DateTimeField(default=now, blank=True)
        tags = TaggableManager()

1) If the tags input doesn’t contain any commas or double quotes, it will be taken as space-delimited list of
tag names.

geeks for geeks => "geeks", "for", "geeks"

2) If the tags input does contain commas or double qoutes then :

       
a) geeks, geeks for geeks            =>   "geeks", "geeks for geeks" 
b) "geeks, forgeeks" geek geeksfor   =>   "geeks, forgeeks", "geek", "geeksfor"
c) "geeks, forgeeks", geek geeksfor  =>   "geeks, forgeeks", "geeks geeksfor"
d) geeks "for" geeks                 =>   "geeks", "for", "geeks"
