I was able to reproduce the issue. Tested the patch and it works fine. Not sure if it is the right way.

  • Component changed from Themes to Bundled Theme
  • Focuses css added
  • Keywords needs-testing added
  • Summary changed from Twenty Twenty Theme - Button texts is not visible in footer widget to Twenty Twenty: Button text is not visible in footer widget
  • Version 6.1 deleted

The .footer-widgets a selector has been in the theme since PR 447. However, links have a default color regardless of location, so this might be safe to remove. This would need testing with many different links in widgets.

One quirk is that changing the Primary (or accent) color in the Customizer will turn the button text color to white. This color continues to apply when switching back to the default Primary color.

.header-footer-group .wp-block-button:not(.is-style-outline) .wp-block-button__link {
  color: #ffffff;

In WordPress 6.0, the button text was also pink, unless the link was visited earlier. (The editor styles had set a white color for the :visited state.)

The white text from .header-footer-group .wp-block-button:not(.is-style-outline) .wp-block-button__link could be considered another issue, not an ideal solution. It is lighter than the beige for a Button link in the content area, and it already occurs if you choose another Accent color in the Customizer (plus it remains even after restoring the default Accent color). Then choosing one of the theme colors for the text would have no effect on the front end.

I'm more concerned about the unreadable default colors, though I tried fixing both situations with the :where() selector to avoid increasing specificity.

#12 @shailu25

Yes @sabernhardt, this is better solution(Without using specific color) and Patch is working fine.
