Having issues with a query where I'm using meta_query to filter the results. The problem I'm having is when the key values are hard-coded the results work perfectly. When I try to use a php variable in it's place I get nothing. I've gone through and made sure that the value of the variable is the same as what was hard-coded. I'll completely stumped. Any ideas?
query_posts(array( 'post_type' => 'issues', 'ki_systems' => $getSystems, 'orderby' => 'modified', 'paged' => $paged, 'posts_per_page' => '30', 'meta_query' => array( 'relation' => 'OR', array( 'key' => 'status', 'value' => $workaround, 'compare' => '==' ), array( 'key' => 'status', 'value' => $resolved, 'compare' => '==', ), array( 'key' => 'status', 'value' => $unresolved, 'compare' => '==' ) ) ) );
