I want to add the currenty category to the body class.

How do I need to modify my current code, to add also the current category as a body class to the is_singular( 'knowledgebase' ) section?

My current code looks like this:

function add_body_class( $classes ) {

    global $pakb;

    if( is_page( $pakb->get( 'kb_page' ) ) && ! is_null(  $pakb->get( 'kb_page' ) ) ) {
        $classes[] = 'pakb-main';
    } elseif ( is_tax( 'knowledgebase_category' ) ) {
        $classes[] = 'pakb-category';
    } elseif ( is_singular( 'knowledgebase' ) ) {
        $classes[] = 'pakb-single';
    }

    return $classes;

}

This late in the process you should be able to rely on context set up, even outside of loop.

On top of my head something like this should work:

$categories = wp_get_post_categories( get_the_ID(), [ 'fields' => 'names' ] );

  • Thanks for your reply! I do not know exectly what you mean with on top of my head. Isn't there an easy way to edit my current code and expand it?

  • I have shown you how to retrieve categories in the context you provided, rest is realm of basic PHP. Complete solution for custom requirements is not something that you will typically get at this site, we focus on learning and knowledge aspects of development.

Here I don't understand what is global $pakb.

But extending to Rarst answer :

add_filter('body_class', 'add_body_class');

function add_body_class($classes) {
    global $pakb;
    global $post;

    if( is_page( $pakb->get( 'kb_page' ) ) && ! is_null(  $pakb->get( 'kb_page' ) ) ) {
        $classes[] = 'pakb-main';
    } elseif ( is_singular( 'knowledgebase' ) ) {
        // getting all category name related to this post
        $categories = wp_get_post_categories( $post->ID, [ 'fields' => 'names' ] );

        $classes[] = $categories;
    }

    return $classes;

return $classes;
}

  • It will add the WP default category name to your body class for knowledgebase post type. Hope this is clear.

  • I do know that, but that does break down the entire page. So the code does not work/is not correct.
