Returns whether the current user has the specified capability.
This function also accepts an ID of an object to check against if the capability is a meta capability. Meta
capabilities such as
edit_user are capabilities used by the
map_meta_cap() function to
map to primitive capabilities that a user or role has, such as
current_user_can( 'edit_posts' ); current_user_can( 'edit_post', $post->ID ); current_user_can( 'edit_post_meta', $post->ID, $meta_key );
While checking against particular roles in place of a capability is supported in part, this practice is discouraged as it may produce unreliable results.
Note: Will always return true if the current user is a super admin, unless specifically denied.
