Can (Permission)

Check if a user has a specific permission.


We want to show a link to the control panel if the user has the cp:access permission.

{{ user:can permission="cp:access" }}
    <a href="/cp">Control Panel</a>
{{ /user:can }}

If the user doesn’t have the permission, the content between the tags simply won’t be rendered.

A shorthand syntax is also available, however this only allows checking against a single permission:

{{ can:cp:access }}
    <a href="/cp">Control Panel</a>
{{ /can:cp:access }}


We also support the inverse using {{ user:cant }} tags.




The permission(s) to check against. You may specify multiple permissions by pipe separating them. eg. {{ user:can permission="foo" }} or {{ user:can do="foo|bar" }}
