Textpattern 4.6.x claims this tag is deprecated and to use the meta_keywords tag instead. Due to unforeseen functionality being affected, this is incorrect advice. The tag is reinstated as of the next version of Textpattern. Please ignore the warning.
On this page:
The keywords tag is a single tag that Textpattern will replace with the keywords associated with the article being displayed. For keywords metadata, see meta_keywords tag.
