Add div element shortcode including class

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

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');
