In the codex it says its possible to do get_users() with multiple meta keys by using the meta_query parameter but it doesn't explain how. Can someone give me an example?

As it mentions in the Codex page for get_users, it works the same as a WP_Query meta_query, see that page for full arguments list and examples.

$args = array(
    'meta_query' => array(
            'key' => 'some_key',
            'value' => 'foo',
            'compare' => '='
            'key' => 'another_key',
            'value' => array( 'bar', 'baz' )
            'compare' => 'IN'
  • I'm having trouble getting this to work with the 'NOT EXISTS' operator as the value of 'compare'. If I want to return all users that DON'T have a specific key, should this work? array('key'=>'some_key','compare'=>'NOT EXISTS') Sep 29, 2012 at 17:55
