I guess only a few use it because WhatsApp has to be installed on the computer for the button to work.

Here is their documentation:
https://faq.whatsapp.com/en/android/28000012

It has a sample "Share" link that doesn't work on my computer because I have no WhatsApp installed there.

Maybe...
Code:
<a href="whatsapp://send?text={$http_location}{$smarty.server.REQUEST_URI}" data-action="share/whatsapp/share">Share via Whatsapp</a>

Thanks for the reply.
This code is creating html url but it's generating directory name 2 times.
But good thing is that following code is working perfectly

Quote:
<a href="whatsapp://send?text=https://www.yoursite.com{$php_url.url}" data-action="share/whatsapp/share">Share via Whatsapp</a>
