Add Slug as Body Class

Add Slug as Body Class

How to Use

Download > Install > Activate. That’s it!


The page slug you are on, example: /contact-us/, would have a targetable CSS class of .contact-us. This page, /plugins/add-slug-as-body-class/, when activated, would have a body class of .plugins_add-slug-as-body-class.


This code can be pasted into the functions.php file of your child theme or, download and install the plugin for simple code activation.

function viawebs_plugins_slug_body_class( $classes ) {
    $uri = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
    $uri = trim($uri, '/');
    $uri_with_underscores = str_replace('/', '_', $uri);
	$sanitized_uri = sanitize_title_with_dashes($uri_with_underscores);
    $classes[] = $sanitized_uri;
    return $classes;
add_filter( 'body_class', 'viawebs_plugins_slug_body_class' );
