"Is Comment Author" condition never evaluates to true


I was following the Comments template from A to Z tutorial to create a new comment section. I wanted to use the “Is Comment Author” condition to display the comment “Edit” button and “Comment under moderation” message only if the current user is the comment author, but for some reason “Is Comment Author” never evaluates to true.

Step-by-step reproduction instructions:

  1. Create a comments query
  2. Insert a div inside the query template
  3. Apply the following condition to the div

The block never appears on the frontend, even when the current user is the comment author.

Environment info

  • WordPress version: 6.3.1
  • Cwicly Plugin version:


Thanks so much for your report!

I have been able to reproduce this issue when the comment author is an existing user on the installation.
I have added it to the bug tracker.
