I created several custom fields for WordPress users, they show up in the user profiles as intended.
I would like to use the values of these fields in two ways:
in blog post for informations about the post author (like an extended author box) and also
in pages with infos (field values) about a specific user
With an Elementor Pro text widget on a page or post, the dynamic content choices for Author have the standard fields, but no metabox field can be chosen, so none of my custom fields for users are available.
Perhaps there is a simple solution but I got lost in an Elementor - Meta Box - WordPress jungle.
The extension Meta Box - Elementor Integrator also helps you to show the meta value of the user who created the post. You can select the field Author Meta when getting the dynamic value, screenshot https://share.getcloudapp.com/2NuEK2PO.
Thanks a lot! For posts created by a user (author) this works perfectly, it worked also with the Elementor Post Info Widget using the Author meta with my custom fields keys.
However I still struggle with pages displaying infos about a specific user. I am half way familiar with wordpress and its templates but new to Elementor, trying hard to get the "translations" from wordpress to Elementor.
I tried to get user infos - not the post author - to build an Elementor page template, the same with an Elementor author archive, but can't figure out there when to use which meta info or metabox field. I looked also in the Elementor forum, but this didn't help either.
