I thought this would be simple, but cant figure it out or find any reference online. Basically Im trying to get posts who have the same meta value for a specific key as the current post. Heres what I have so far

global $authordata, $post;
$authors_posts = get_posts( array(
'author' => $authordata->ID,
'post_parent' => 0,
'orderby' => 'menu_order',
'post_type' => 'page',
'posts_per_page' => -1,
'meta_query' => array(
 array(
  'key' => 'stashkey',
  'value' => $id,
'compare' => '=' )
)
) );

This works fine to get all posts who have a meta value which equals the same as the current post id - but I want to get it based on having the same meta value as the current post.

Thanks

You should first get the meta value for the current post, then use it to make another query.

global $authordata, $post;
$my_meta = get_post_meta( $id, 'stashkey', true);
$authors_posts = get_posts( array(
'author' => $authordata->ID,
'post_parent' => 0,
'orderby' => 'menu_order',
'post_type' => 'page',
'posts_per_page' => -1,
'meta_query' => array(
 array(
  'key' => 'stashkey',
  'value' => $my_meta,
'compare' => '=' )
)
) );

This will fetch the posts that have equal stashkey meta as current post.
