While using guntenberg block Query Loop I found an issue that actual reslt in frontend doesnot match multiple authors selected in editor. Result is populated only on the basis of first author selected in Authors filter.

Steps to replicate.

  • Drop a query loop in a any post
  • Add Multiple Authors in Authors Filter, update the page.
  • Visit frontend


  • Posts should be generated as per selected Authors

Actual Result

  • Posts generated only on the basis of first selected author in the list of authors filter

Hi @oglekler as this has a couple of test reports, would commit be more appropriate here so that it appears in the commit queue for final review?
