/** * Returns whether the author of the supplied post 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_post` and `edit_user` are capabilities used by the `map_meta_cap()` function to * map to primitive capabilities that a user or role has, such as `edit_posts` and `edit_others_posts`. * * Example usage: * * author_can( $post, 'edit_posts' ); * author_can( $post, 'edit_post', $post->ID ); * author_can( $post, 'edit_post_meta', $post->ID, $meta_key ); * * @since 2.9.0
