meta query by acf user field (object)

  • I need to create a query by user id (user acf field)
    the acf field with the user is “owner”
    The query is like this:

    $application = get_posts( 
    		'post_type' => 'application',
    		'posts_per_page' => -1,
    		'meta_query' => array(
    				'key' => 'owner',
    				'value' => '"' . $post_id . '"',
    				'compare' => 'LIKE'

    But this doesn’t work. How can i query by an acf user field?

  • Does the field allow multiple users? You only need to use the LIKE comparison if multiple users can be selected. Otherwise the field should only hold a single user ID.

  • I found the solution:
    i had to remove the “user_” prefix to the id as i’m using this in a user profile page:
    'value' => '"' . str_replace("user_", "", $post_id ) . '"',

  • Well, that would also explain it. Good you found the problem.
