Methods of Checking User Permissions (Not Visitor)

    What are the possible methods of checking for the currently logged in user's permissions? I'm trying to do a quick permission check in XenForo_Template_Helper_Core and struggling.

    There are two ways...

    XenForo_Permission::hasPermission($viewingUser['permissions'], 'PermissionGroup', 'PermissionId')
    $viewingUser = null;
    $perms['custom'] = (XenForo_Permission::hasPermission($viewingUser['permissions'], 'EWRporta', 'canCustom') ? true : false);
    Or... you can do... (its not the "correct" way)
    $visitor = XenForo_Visitor::getInstance();
    $perms['custom'] = ($visitor['permissions']['EWRporta']['canCustom'] ? true : false);
    The second method can even be used in templates!
    (this may not be the correct way, but I have not run into any issues yet)
    <xen:if is="$visitor.permissions.EWRporta.canCustom">

    I managed to do this in the end by creating a user model and joining the permissions to the getUserById() function.
