#32019 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

WP_User_Query: since 4.2 using array( 'who' => 'authors' ) has no effect on users query

This can be annoying i think. When editing a post, the dropdown in the authors metabox is now listing all users.

Applying the quick patch i've attached to this ticket seems to fix the issue.

In 32207:

Ensure that 'who' param is respected when generating meta_query in WP_User_Query.

Since [31669], the 'who' param had been parsed after meta_query was generated,
so that 'who' was effectively ignored.

Props imath.
Fixes #32019.

In 37359:

Tests: Correct 'meta_query' syntax in test related to WP_User_Query 'who' param.

The test, introduced in [32207], used the incorrect syntax for 'meta_query' -
one fewer level of array-nesting than what WP_Meta_Query requires. This
slip uncovered a bug introduced into WP_User_Query in [30094], whereby
an incorrectly formatted 'meta_query' parameter would be properly parsed by
WP_User_Query when passed alongside who=authors.

We need to fix the inconsistent syntax in order to resolve #36724.

See #36724, #32019, #23849, #27026.
