Add div element shortcode including class

Just a simple shortcode that will let you add a div using shortcode to your posts and pages. Add this snippet to the functions.php of your WordPress theme and within any post you can write the following shortcode to include a <div class="my_class"></div> within your post. [div class="my_class"]content[/div] comes in handy if you need to do something custom on a post by post basis.

Code Snippet:

function div_html($atts, $content = null) {

extract( shortcode_atts( array(
'class' => '',
), $atts ) );

$class = $class ? '' class=\''$class\'''' : NULL;

return “<div$class>$content</div>'';
add_shortcode('div', 'div_html');
