When I select text and insert a link in WordPress admin using Gutenberg, WordPress searches for internal pages based on the link text. It returns posts, custom posts etc., but not users.
I found some information about how to show users’ meta data in the REST API (which I think is what needs to happen?):
and tried adding this in functions.php:
register_meta( ‘user’, ‘first_name’, [ ‘show_in_rest’ => true ] );
But no success.
Is it possible to include users in the search?
Thank you for any pointers!
