Hi everyone, 

I want to add a WhatsApp Icon to the Footer of the Shopify Prestige theme. 

I already tried replacing one of the existing icons (Twitter) but wasn't successful. 

Is there any solution I could try? More than thankful for your tipps!

Kind regards
Marina

Hello, how you doing ?

 

Hope you doing fine . 

 

I just figured out how to this on my own store (Venture Theme) .

 

Maybe it works for you too :

 

Edit Code > Snippets > Add a new Snippet .

 

Name it icon-whatsapp.liquid

 

Open it as paste the code :

 

<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" class="icon icon-whatsapp"><path d="M.057 24l1.687-6.163c-1.041-1.804-1.588-3.849-1.587-5.946.003-6.556 5.338-11.891 11.893-11.891 3.181.001 6.167 1.24 8.413 3.488 2.245 2.248 3.481 5.236 3.48 8.414-.003 6.557-5.338 11.892-11.893 11.892-1.99-.001-3.951-.5-5.688-1.448l-6.305 1.654zm6.597-3.807c1.676.995 3.276 1.591 5.392 1.592 5.448 0 9.886-4.434 9.889-9.885.002-5.462-4.415-9.89-9.881-9.892-5.452 0-9.887 4.434-9.889 9.884-.001 2.225.651 3.891 1.746 5.634l-.999 3.648 3.742-.981zm11.387-5.464c-.074-.124-.272-.198-.57-.347-.297-.149-1.758-.868-2.031-.967-.272-.099-.47-.149-.669.149-.198.297-.768.967-.941 1.165-.173.198-.347.223-.644.074-.297-.149-1.255-.462-2.39-1.475-.883-.788-1.48-1.761-1.653-2.059-.173-.297-.018-.458.13-.606.134-.133.297-.347.446-.521.151-.172.2-.296.3-.495.099-.198.05-.372-.025-.521-.075-.148-.669-1.611-.916-2.206-.242-.579-.487-.501-.669-.51l-.57-.01c-.198 0-.52.074-.792.372s-1.04 1.016-1.04 2.479 1.065 2.876 1.213 3.074c.149.198 2.095 3.2 5.076 4.487.709.306 1.263.489 1.694.626.712.226 1.36.194 1.872.118.571-.085 1.758-.719 2.006-1.413.248-.695.248-1.29.173-1.414z"/></svg>

 

Then go to footer.liquid and ad this code rigth after any other social netwok :

 

<a href="https://wa.me/(YOUR WHATSAPP NUMBER HERE)?text=Hi%2C+I+have+a+question+about+your+store" title="{{ 'layout.footer.social_platform' | t: name: shop.name, platform: 'WhatsApp' }}">
{% include 'icon-whatsapp' %}
<span class="icon__fallback-text">WhatsApp</span>
</a>

 

It show look something like this:

 

{% if settings.social_instagram_link != blank %}
<li>
<a href="{{ settings.social_instagram_link | escape }}" title="{{ 'layout.footer.social_platform' | t: name: shop.name, platform: 'Instagram' }}">
{% include 'icon-instagram' %}
<span class="icon__fallback-text">Instagram</span>
</a>
</li>
{% endif %}
<li>
<a href="https://wa.me/(YOUR NUMBER HERE)?text=Hi%2C+I+have+a+question+about+your+store" title="{{ 'layout.footer.social_platform' | t: name: shop.name, platform: 'WhatsApp' }}">
{% include 'icon-whatsapp' %}
<span class="icon__fallback-text">WhatsApp</span>
</a>
</li>

 

Note that the whatsapp part isn't inside a conditional function (if else), so it will always show on the page .

 

Please, backup your theme before modify the code and dont forget to ad the country code before the number .

 

For example, in brazil is 55XXXXXXXX .

 

Hope it works for you too .
