How to Display Meta for Logged Out Users?

By default, Shortcode Builder provides the meta only for logged in users. If you wish to display meta for all users, you can use 'post_author' in 'user_id' field of the shortcode '[uwp_user_meta]' to get the meta for the current post author. Example [uwp_user_meta key="display_name" show="value" user_id="post_author"]
