Add Chat App Button

Beschreibung

The Add Chat App Button plugin enables adding a customizable click-to-chat WhatsApp button.
The plugin lets you choose between a simple WhatsApp icon and a rectangle with a custom text label (see screenshots).

Usage

To enable the WhatsApp button, check the first checkbox in the settings page. You will find the settings page in the admin dashboard menu, under Settings->Add Chat App Button.

You must enter an international phone number (only numbers, NO plus sign (+), NO dashes(-)) in order to enable the WhatsApp button. Even if you manage to save settings into the database without entering a phone number, your button might not work properly.

The plugin settings page has two tabs: „General Settings“ and „Button Design“.

The General Settings tab includes options such as limiting the button to only display under a certain screen resolution (in pixels), attaching a default message that will be populated in the user’s phone when they click the button, and more.

The Button Design tab includes controls for the button color, label text color, button type (side-bearing rectangle, WhatsApp icon, fixed-bottom button), and more. The Button Design tab also includes a smartphone mockup with a live preview screen, enabling you to see a real-time (estimated) rendering of how your button would look, on the fly, as you are changing its design.

The plugin detects whether the site visitor is using a desktop or mobile device and serves a different link for each accordingly.

Installation

  1. Upload the plugin files (the contents of add-whatsapp-button.zip) to the /wp-content/plugins/add-whatsapp-button directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‚Plugins‘ screen in WordPress
  3. On the WordPress Admin menu, go to Settings->Add Chat App Button to configure the plugin

FAQ

I see there is a setting for limiting the display hours for the WhatsApp button. What timezone does the plugin use for this setting?

Add Chat App Button uses Javascript to check the time on the client’s device. So it will be displayed/hidden according to the set time in each client’s timezone.
