Setting up WhatsApp link or chat on your WordPress

Why do we need to integrate WhatsApp with the WordPress website?

Sometimes we need to add a support system so that users can connect with us quickly and we can reply to them quickly. so, we can use WhatsApp Messenger as a quick communication source. We can put links in HTML code or we can put a chat option in the bottom corner of the site.

Note: WhatsApp Messenger must be installed on your phone or System.

We have 2 ways to set up WhatsApp with your website:

  1. The first way is to add HTML Code and
  2. The second way is to use the plugin.

Add HTML Code for a link in your WordPress page.

//It will redirects user to the whatsapp
<a href="<yourmobile_number>" target="_blank">Link Text Here</a>

Note: Here you have to enter your WhatsApp number with country code 
but you have to 
      ignore + or any special symbols.

//example (if your number is 0000000000 and country code is +91)
<a href="" target="_blank">Link Text Here</a>

Connect with WhatsApp Chat using the “Click to Chat” Plugin.
