How to filter Less on child theme


I’m trying to change the default color for buttons in the button widget. I’m running vantage with a child theme, and thought I could do something like this in the child theme’s `functions.php`:

function ms_filter_sow_button_less( $less, $instance, $widget ) {
        $less = str_replace('button_color: #41a9d5;',
            'button_color: #cecece;', $less);

        return $less;
add_filter('siteorigin_widgets_less_sow-button', 'ms_filter_sow_button_less',
    10, 3);

But … nothing happens. Am I misunderstanding something?

    Hi Cwrichardson,

    I recommend changing the default color of the button color setting itself. This can be done by using siteorigin_widgets_form_options_sow-button. The button color can be accessed via $form_options[‘design’][‘button_color’]

    You could also override LESS variables directly by using siteorigin_widgets_less_variables_WIDGET_SLUG.

    Kind regards,
