SOLVED: {author_meta:id} not working

Hi, I’m trying to display a div within a post only for the author of that particular post.

My approach is a condition with dynamic data:
{wp_user_id} == {author_meta:id}

Unfortunately {author_meta:id} doesn’t give me the ID of the post’s author.

What am I doing wrong? Or is there a better approach?

Thank you!

Instead of {author_meta:id}, use {echo: get_the_author_meta(ID)}.


Thank you @Sridhar, I will use it like that. But according to Dynamic Data – Bricks Academy {author_meta:id} should be possible, right?

Yes. Hopefully, it will be fixed in the next version.
