How to add Woocommerce parent category to WP ‘body’ class?

Now to add category classes to body tag, add the following lines of code at the end of your theme’s functions.php file:

functionwoo_custom_taxonomy_in_body_class( $classes ){

   $custom_terms = get_the_terms(0, 'product_cat');

if ($custom_terms) {

foreach ($custom_terms as $custom_term) {

 

       // Check if the parent category exists:

if( $custom_term->parent > 0 ) {

           // Get the parent product category:

           $parent = get_term( $custom_term->parent, 'product_cat' );

           // Append the parent class:

if ( ! is_wp_error( $parent ) )

               $classes[] = 'product_parent_cat_' . $parent->slug;  

       }

 

       $classes[] = 'product_cat_' . $custom_term->slug;

     }

   }

return $classes;

}

 

add_filter( 'body_class', 'woo_custom_taxonomy_in_body_class' );

You can access functions.php file here.

Now after adding the code, go to a category page and inspect element by right clicking on page.

  1. OR… If you don’t want to use the ugliest code ever created you could use:

    add_filter( ‘body_class’, ‘wc_cat_names’ );
    function wc_cat_names( $classes ) {
    if(is_product()){
    global $post;
    $terms = get_the_terms( $post->ID, ‘product_cat’ );
    foreach ($terms as $term) {
    $classes[] = $term->slug;
    }
    }
    return $classes;
    }
