[PAID] Adding whatsapp share feature


Discourse by default allows us to share posts on FB and Twitter using the share button.

I’d like to allow my users to share posts on Whatsapp.

(as per the new marketplace rules)
If you’re interested in working on this project, post a reply here stating your interest. And if all goes well, we can continue the discussion over email.

How to link your community to the discourse app?

I may be mistaken but I think all you need to do is insert the following link (with WhatsApp icon) into that share dialog.

<a href="whatsapp://send?text=The text to share." data-action="share/whatsapp/share">Share via Whatsapp</a>

If you’d rather hire someone to set it up for you, I’d be glad to work through it with you. We can work through the financials, timeframes, etc via email (joe@joebuhlig.com).

Also, on Android mobile, the share icon already opens WhatsApp as a share target:


@Falco - I was ignorant. lol :slight_smile:
Just realised that Discourse had this feature by default - built-in.
