Add Missing .woocommerce Class And Other Classes to Pages Used by WooCommerce

When changing WooCommerce templates and adding more functionality to a shop I found that some pages used by WooCommerce do not have a basic .woocommerce class on page’s <body>, as well as some layout classes, like .product-columns-3 were missing. This is resulted in a wrong rendering of my CSS. Here’s the way how to add such classes to all pages.

I decided to add .woocommerce and other missing classes to all pages of my site. Shouldn’t be a problem, because other pages don’t have shop’s elements anyway.

To add a new class to whole site’s body tag it was enough to use this code in header.php of my theme instead of <body <?php body_class(); ?>> we can use <body <?php body_class( 'product-columns-3 woocommerce' ); ?>>

But there is a problem with duplication of classes on WooCommerce registered pages, if I simply add them in the body tag. Need to avoid duplication with conditional tags.

Add this code to your child theme’s functions.php:

// Add specific CSS class by filtering NON woocommerce
// declared pages used for woocommerce
add_filter('body_class', 'my_body_class');
function my_body_class($classes) {
    if ( ! is_woocommerce()) {
        $classes[] = 'product-columns-3 woocommerce notWoo';
    return $classes;

Conditional tag is_woocommerce is in effect only on pages recognized by WooCommerce. Tag ! is_woocommerce helps to filter pages NOT recognized as a part of WooCommerce structure, meaning without .woocommerce main class in the body_class yet. I’m also adding additional class .notWoo to identify such pages.

So now CSS is in effect for all pages without duplication of body classes.
