Add Whatsapp to Social section

Hello,
I’m using sydney pro theme on my site https://touwolf.com/ and I need to add on the social section a link to whatsapp, How can I do to show the whatsapp icon ?
Thanks

Hello there,

Sydney code doesn’t support for Whatsapp social profile icon yet. You can enable it by adding this extra custom CSS code to Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS from dashboard.

    .social-menu-widget a[href*="whatsapp"]:before {
       content: '\f232';
    }

Then go to Appearance > Menus to compose your Whatsapp call link. Use Custom Links type of menu item. In the URL field, enter:

https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=15551234567

Replace 15551234567 to your phone number.

After Sydny Pro Theme Upgrade to Version: 2.0.26 the whatsapp icon disappeared
it was showing blank, to solve it i have added the font-family: 'FontAwesome'
to the above code and it worked fine for me , the complete CSS code is:

 .social-menu-widget a[href*="whatsapp"]:before {
	 font-family: 'FontAwesome';
       content: '\f232';
    }
