  • Two things you can try:

    1. value does accept an arra so that may help matching on a post_object -> ‘value’ => array(‘auth1′,’auth2’),
    2. Ensure the key author matches the query_var type. e.g. if author is name you may need to convert it to ID etc.

    Basically check what exact data the AFC field is saving… It’s not always what you expect because the AFC output is an abstracted version of the data and not the raw values which meta_query uses for matching. Look at author key->values in the DB or var_dump using get_post_meta not get_field.
