Add custom body_class to all post and pages

This is similar to another body_class post I made however I had a few emails asking about just adding a specific class to the body on every page. Adding this snippet to the functions.php of your wordpress theme will let you add specific classes to wordpress body_class function. Don't forget to add <?php body_class(); ?> to the body tag within header.php.

Code Snippet:

function add_body_classes($classes) {
$classes[] = 'my-class-one';
$classes[] = 'my-class-two';
$classes[] = 'my-class-three';
return $classes;

Code Snippet:

<?php body_class(); ?>
