FAQ

Open WhatsApp Web on desktop

By default, WAme always opens api.whatsapp.com and try to launch the native application or if it doesn’t exist redirects to WhatsApp Web. Depending on the browser and the operating system, sometimes it doesn’t work.

If you prefer always open WhatsApp Web on desktop you can add this code in your functions.php:

add_filter( 'whatsappme_whatsapp_web', '__return_true' );

Note: From version 2.3.0 you can mark an option to open WhatsApp Web.

I can’t see the button or it’s over / under another thing

You can change the position of the button so that nothing covers it by adding this CSS in Appearance > Customize > Custom CSS:

.whatsappme { z-index:9999; }

Greater values of z-index are left over, the default value is 400.

What about GDPR?

WAme don’t save any personal data and don’t use cookies.

Google Analytics integration

WAme send a custom event when user click to launch WhatsApp.

If Global Site Tag (gtag.js) detected:

gtag('event', 'click', { 'event_category': 'WhatsAppMe', 'event_label': out_url })

If Universal Analtics (analytics.js) detected:

ga('send', 'event', 'WhatsAppMe', 'click', out_url })
Google Tag Manager integration

WAme send an event (if GTM detected) when user click to launch WhatsApp:

dataLayer.push({ 'event': 'WhatsAppMe', 'eventAction': 'click', 'eventLabel': out_url });
Facebook Pixel integration

WAme send a custom event if Facebook Pixel is detected when user click to launch WhatsApp:

fbq('trackCustom', 'WhatsAppMe', { eventAction: 'click', eventLabel: out_url });
Other integrations

There is a Javascript event that WAme triggers automatically before launch WhatsApp, which can be used to add your custom tracking code (or other needs).

jQuery(document).ready(function($){
  $(document).on('whatsappme:open', function (event, args, settings) {
    // Your staff
    // Note: args.link is the link to open, you can change it
    // but only wa.me, whastapp.com or current domain are allowed.
  });
});
