How to Sync Author Fields

Similar to Images, WordPress treats "Users" as a separate entity, so special steps need to be taken:

  1. In WordPress, go to your ACF custom field for Authors

  2. In the field name add "_fk_users" at the end

  3. In Airtable, make the field a linked record to the Users table

  4. Map the fields in Whalesync
