Sometimes you want to add a body tag for a specific user role. This as you want to hide or show specific parts of a page, or site for a particular user. Here is how you can do just that.

add_filter( 'body_class', 'imwz_role__body_class' );
function imwz_role__body_class( $classes ) {
 $user = wp_get_current_user(); 
 if ( in_array( 'subscriber', $user->roles ) ) {     
     $classes[] = 'class-name'; // your custom class name 
  return $classes;

As you can see the body_class filter is used. Inside it we get the user role properly using wp_get_current_user and an array checking the roles.

Once done you could see something like this for classes
