Save serialized data

  • Hi,
    i’ve custom taxonomy used in users profile with checkbox (six option) . When i save it insert in the table wp_usermeta this serialized value:
    a:1:{i:0;s:1:”2″;} – option 1
    a:1:{i:0;s:1:”6″;} – option 2
    a:1:{i:0;s:1:”3″;} – option 3
    a:1:{i:0;s:1:”4″;} – option 4
    a:1:{i:0;s:1:”5″;} – option 5
    a:1:{i:0;s:3:”846″;} – option 6

    This is the query to get all users with one checked option

    // id of the single term custom taxonomy
    $term_id = term_exists( $area );

    $args = array(
    ‘who’ => ‘authors’,
    ‘order’ => ‘ASC’,
    ‘meta_query’ => array(
    ‘key’ => ‘custom taxonomy’,
    ‘value’ => $term_id,

    ‘compare’ => ‘LIKE’

    If i want all users with option 3 checked i get users with option 6 checked too.

    I noticed that when i save user with option 6 it write in the table:
    a:1:{i:0;s:3:”846″;}. If i change s:3 in s:1 it works fine.
    It’s a save error?

    I’ use last version of ACF pro and 4.3.1 of wordpress

    I hope I have explained well

  • Because you are doing LIKE 3 for example when you should be doing LIKE "3"

    Your value that you’re searching for should be

    'value' => '"'.$term_id.'"',

    so that you are searching for exactly the term ID enclosed in quotes.
