  • Hi @fonty87

    Please use the code tags when you paste code. Elliot has not fixed this issue yet but if you post weirdly formatted code without the code tags you’ll break the site layout making it impossible to answer you 🙂

    I’ve fixed your post now after tinkering a bit with the CSS to be able to hit the edit button 😉

    If you’re using the User field in ACF to store the author you need to query it by the user ID, not the display name.

    I think this change should do it (if that’s how you set it up)

    $args = array(
    	'post_type' => 'event', // required
    	'suppress_filters' => false, // required
    	'posts_per_page' => 10000, // Should never be set to -1 as it's a risk not setting boundaries. Good code practise!
    	'meta_query' => array( // Use meta query instead
    			'key' => 'vortrag_von',
    			'value' => $author->ID,
    			'compare' => '='
