I am trying to check if the logged in user is the same as the author who created the post/apge. If this results in true then I want to display some text, if not something else. for now I’m using :
[ Moderator note: code fixed. Please wrap code in the backtick character or use the code button. ]
<?php if(is_user_logged_in() == the_author() ) : ?>
<p>You wrote this post</p>
<?php else: ?>
<p>You didn't write this post</p>
<?php endif ?>
I also want to use the above to check the user role.
Turns out, it nothing works.

I haven’t tried your code yet but where are you inserting that code? In your theme that you’re working on or a plugin?
I am inserting it on top of single-post.php in my child theme.
