#45197 reviewing enhancement

Introduce `user_can_for_blog()`

The available user capability checking functions include:

  • current_user_can()
  • user_can()
  • current_user_can_for_blog()

What's missing is user_can_for_blog() so that both a user ID and a site ID can be passed in order to check a given user's capabilities on a given site.

+1 to this.

I have coded some version of this logic at least a few times (into private methods in plugins.)

I can adapt something into a patch, but it’s pretty straight forward if anyone wants to try.

Hey guys, I'm at WordCamp Sofia 2018 Contributors day and this is the first patch I'm submitting. I'm not able to fully test it so I'm looking forward to a review. Thanks in advance.
