Topic: Facebook , instagram and whatsapp button links not working

bgining2this free asked 4 years ago

Hello comunity.-

I am trying to use the floating social buttons, but i cant seem to make them work, if i copy the code from this link Social Buttons

the buttons dont even show, i have added the link to the facebook account in the tag but no luck still, example.-

<a href='' type='button' className='btn-floating btn-small btn-fb'><i className='fab fa-facebook-f'></i></a>

Same thing, with Instagram. Btw how can i create a Whatsapp link or button with a custom whatsapp number? Been looking for that feature but i cant seem to find it.

Thank you very much.
