Whatsapp social share icon o

Hi,

On my staging domain: http://www.datainbeeld.com/opladenmetdezon/over-ons/bekijk-ons-product/ do I want to use an extra sharing option via Whatsapp. I’ve used the following code:

[share title=“Deel deze video” facebook=“true” twitter=“true” google_plus=“true” linkedin=“true” email=“true” whatsapp=“true”]

But what must I use in my fuctions.php to let this work?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Regards Bouke

Hello Bouke,

Thank you for the very detailed post information. To accomplish what you have in mind, assuming that the child theme is set up, please add the following code in your child theme’s functions.php file

We would loved to know if this has work for you. Thank you.

Hi,

Thanks for the quick response! Seems that it doesn’t work directly. Must I update some of this code into custom made shortcode: (whatsapp=“true”). I’ve placed the code into my functions.php in my child theme.

Hello Bouke,

Once you have place the code in your child theme’s functions.php file, you should use this shortcode in your post:

[share title="Deel deze video" facebook="true" twitter="true" google_plus="true" linkedin="true" email="true" whatsapp="true"]

Please let us know if this works out for you.

Hello ReuNel,

Yes I’ve update the shortcode and placed the code inside the functions.php
It seems that the share button via inspects elements isn’t vissible: at via: http://www.datainbeeld.com/opladenmetdezon/over-ons/bekijk-ons-product/

Hi support team,

Just one last question. I have some problems with my po and mo files to translate:
Hey, thought you might enjoy this! Check it out when you have a chance: https://www.opladenmetdezon.nl/over-ons/bekijk-ons-product/

Is it possible via the functions.php to translate?

Hi @sharp-image,

We kindly ask to write your new query on a separate thread to avoid confusion.

You can follow this article for translation.

Thanks,
