WordPress Shortcode with attribute Creating a self-closing shortcode


The simplest shortcode is the self-closing one. We’re going to create a simple link to our Twitter account, and then add it in a blog post. All the code goes in functions.php, which is located in /wp-content/themes/your-theme/. If you don’t have one, just create it and put the code in it.

function button_shortcode() {
return '<a href="http://twitter.com/rupomkhondaker" class="twitter-button">Follow me on Twitter!</a>"';
add_shortcode('button', 'button_shortcode'); 

Usage: [button]
