I have the following in the header: <body <?php body_class(); ?> >
Some of the templates in the site fill that in, other pages don't now that I have changed the menu order.  How do I set in the template what the Body Class should be?

Take a look at the body_class documentation here (https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/body_class/)

You can add your own class in there like this (From the above link)
<body <?php body_class( 'class-name' ); ?>>

Open in new window


Add close to specific page template
add_filter( 'body_class', 'custom_class' );
function custom_class( $classes ) {
    if ( is_page_template( 'page-example.php' ) ) {
        $classes[] = 'example';
    }
    return $classes;
}

Open in new window

What do you mean "Add close to specific page template"?  Place it at the end of the template?

No you put that in your functions.php file. The code hooks the body_class callback and then checks for a specified page and if found adds the custom class.

Provided as an example as to how you can add a custom class to specific pages.

EDIT Close meant to be Class;

I actually had to use is_page to make it work for some reason but it got the job done.  Thanks.
