3. Copy the below code and paste inside the list item code

<a class='whatsapp' expr:href='&quot;whatsapp://send?text=&quot;+ data:post.title + &quot; &quot; + data:post.url' onclick='window.parent.null' rel='nofollow' target='_top' title='Share to whatsapp'><i class='fa fa-whatsapp'/><span>Share</span></a>

<b:if cond='data:blog.isMobileRequest == &quot;true&quot;'>
<a class='whatsapp' expr:href='&quot;whatsapp://send?text=&quot;+ data:post.title + &quot; &quot; + data:post.url' onclick='window.parent.null' rel='nofollow' target='_top' title='Share to whatsapp'><i class='fa fa-whatsapp'/><span>Share</span></a>
