I posted this earlier:
https://wpforo.com/community/general-discussions/need-integration-with-mobile/#post-29843

But now have a more specific question:

I can see that social-media sharing config is part of Jetpack.
(I have different behaviour on different sites dues to different Themes rather than different plug-ins)

On my only wpForo installation travivas.ianglen.net [Members Area] I have two different behaviours on the same page. (I have only default 2019 themes for WP and wpForo)

  • At the bottom of any Forum "page" I have the social sharing buttons configured in Jetpack.
    (But since this the Forum is a "page" implementation, the share only includes the top level forum page link)
  • At the top right of each wpForo post there are 3 different sharing links (URL, Twitter and Google+) that do NOT appear to be configured by Jetpack.

How do I configure the latter?

I'm trying to get both auto-sharing of new topics published and user sharing buttons on selected topics or replies.

UPDATE : Now specifically - I need a WhatsApp sharing function.
(Individual post by user and auto topic publish preferably as per JetPack within WP)

[I now see that the wpForo config for sharing is under the "API's" tab, but no WhatsApp?]

Thank you for using wpForo and for contacting us. 

All options for wpForo social sharings are located in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > API's admin page.

I'm sorry, but wpForo doesn't have a WhatsApp sharing feature. This is already in our to-do list. In future releases, we're planning to add three more sharing buttons (LinkedIn, Reddit, WhatsApp).

Hi.
Any update on when WhatsApp sharing is likely to be available at the individual topic / reply level (As per individual posts in the core WP)?

Regards

Ian / Psybertron

Same question - any ETA for WhatsApp inclusion in the Forum Post / Reply social sharing links?

We may add whatsup share button in next version. This is currently under consideration.
