Slug as body class

Description

Want to have css styling rules for individual pages or posts?

This plugin adds a unique class to the body tag of the html. The added class is formatted as “[post_type]-[post_name]”. For a page with slug (= post_name) “about” it will be “page-about”, and for a post named “today” it will be “post-today”. Currently no slug will be added for archive and category pages. Please let us know if you need this and we will add it.

example

Say you want to have a red title on your contact page. With this plugin all you need to do is add this line to your css:

body.page-contact h1 {
color : red;
}

A Must Have

I use this plugin on every WP site I build, it’s one of the first ones I add. I honestly can’t believe that WP doesn’t come with this feature natively, it’s so handy to quickly add CSS page-by-page, in a more “readable” way than Body ID’s.

Very Practical

This is a very practical and useful plugin for developers. One would think that this functionality is supported natively by WordPress, but the body classes simply get bloated with attributes. This plugin really helps simplify the process of targeting specific pages.
