XF 1.4 Share buttons per post (how?)

Hi there,

I noticed the little permalink button, standing beside the "like" button in a post. When I click on it, I don't see a "Share this page" area where you have social media icons.



First question: how do I enable the "share this page" area? Is it being removed of Xenforo? (PS: shouldn't it be "share this post?" instead of page?)

Second question: is there a way I can add these buttons separately, before having to clicking on the permalink? If so, how?

Third question:
is there a way I can add a "share on Whatsapp" button per post?

Hope you guys can help me out.

The icons missing from your custom style are due to edits made to the template.
You will need to contact the style author if it is a third party style, or check and update/revert the changes you have made.

Second question: is there a way I can add these buttons separately, before having to clicking on the permalink? If so, how?
That would require editing the template(s) or an add-on.
See this set of guides for help: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/how-to.4390/

Third question: is there a way I can add a "share on Whatsapp" button per post?
Again, that would require customisation to add the new service.
