In this Thesis theme video tutorial lesson you will learn how to use the Thesis custom body class system to apply unique styling to individual pages, posts and archives. This is the heart of what makes the Thesis theme so easy to customize with CSS. We will also learn how to use this concept to apply styling across groups of pages, posts and categories. We will be using this custom body class system for displaying different header images on different pages, both for groups of pages and for specific categories of posts and the category archive.

We will start off by looking at how the Thesis theme automatically assigns custom classes and learning about the Custom Body Class system in general. Then we’ll look at the way Thesis provides for creating our own custom classes. Next we’ll look at how to use the automatic custom classes to style individual posts, pages and category archives. We’ll use varying header images to demonstrate how to use the system. Finally we’re going to learn how to create our own custom classes and  then apply this concept to groups of pages, posts and category archives, allowing us to apply a common style to related pages on the site.
