Most of the widgets available on the internet are only for WordPress or any other platform, and those which claim to work on blogger are buggy and most of the time it doesn't work properly, but here we have published a tutorial which works absolutely perfect and clutter-free but it also carries other social media profiles, but this time we have added only WhatsApp sharing button.

Start Step-1 ( Adding CSS

Before Editing, we recommend you make a backup of your template so that anything goes wrong you still have your blog design safe.

The First thing you need to do is log in to your Blogger account and go to >> Templates >> Edit HTML and search for the ending ]]></b:skin> tag and just above it paste the following code.
/* ######## Whatsapp Sharing Widget By www.templatemedia.tk ######################### */
.share-box {
position: relative;
padding: 10px;
}
.share-title {
border-bottom: 2px solid #777;
color: #010101;
display: inline-block;
padding-bottom: 7px;
font-size: 15px;
font-weight: 500;
position: relative;
top: 2px;
float:left;
}
.share-art {
float: left;
padding: 0;
padding-top: 0;
font-size: 13px;
font-weight: 400;
text-transform: capitalize;
}
.share-art a {
color: #fff;
padding: 3px 8px;
margin-left: 4px;
border-radius: 2px;
display: inline-block;
margin-right: 0;
background: #010101;
}
.share-art a:hover{color:#fff}
.share-art .wat-art{background:#25d266;display:none;}
.share-art .wat-art:hover{background:rgba(37, 210, 102, 0.73)}
@media only screen and (max-width: 768px) {
.share-art .wat-art{display:inline-block;}
}


Step-2 ( Adding HTML

In the template, search for the <data:post.body/> tag  and just below it paste the following HTML Coding. In case, you are unable to find <data:post.body/>,  then you can paste it just below <div class='post-footer'> or <div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-1'></div>.
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<div class='share-box'>
 
          <h8 class='share-title'>Share This:</h8>
               <div class='share-art'> 

<whatsapp expr:href='data:post.url' expr:text='data:post.title'/>
<a class='wat-art' expr:href='&quot;whatsapp://send?text=&quot; + data:post.title + &quot; &gt;&gt; &quot; + data:post.url' rel='nofollow' target='_blank'><i class='fa fa-whatsapp'/><span class='resp_del5'> Whatsapp</span></a>

</div>
         </div>
                 
      <div style='clear:both'/> 
</b:if> 




Note:- If you want to display the widget on every page ( Homepage, postage, index page, search page, archive page, etc.) Then remove the lines which are marked in red from the above code.


Step-3 ( Adding Fontawesome ) 

The widget works on font awesome icons, so to make the widget work you have to install font-awesome in your blog, To do so.

In the template, search for the </head> tag and just above it paste the following HTML Coding.



<link href='https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.7.0/css/font-awesome.min.css' rel='stylesheet'/>
