Reverse-querying a relationship field with another relationship field as value

  • Allright guys, a bit of a headache here:

    I’ve got three custom post types: poem, author and collection.
    Relationships are set from the poem CPT: every poem has an author and a collection relationship field.
    I’m now trying to access from the author page every poem written by him/her through a ‘meta_query’, like this:

    
    $poems = get_posts(array(
        'post_type' => 'poems',
        'meta_query' => array(
            array(
                'key' => 'author',
                'value' => <strong>???</strong>,
                'compare' => 'LIKE'
    
            )
        )
    ));
    

    The problem is that author is a relationship field that will return an object. I would like to compare the ‘author’ custom field’s name or id to a value, but I would need to get the name/id value from the first element of the ‘author’ array.

    I hope I have managed to succesfully explain my problem.
    That said, does anybody know how I could do that or if that’s even possible?
    (I’ve thought about a custom SQL query but I couldn’t find a way)
    Thanks!

  • Well, looks like the solution was much easier than I expected.
    The query does already compare the ID field to your value.
    Such a long post for nothing :/
