function custom_gb_xapi_content_post_args($cpt_args){
    $cpt_args['show_in_menu'] = true;
    $cpt_args['capability_type'] = 'xapi';
    $cpt_args['map_meta_cap'] = true;
    $cpt_args['capabilities'] = array(
       'edit_post'      => "edit_xapi",
       'read_post'      => "read_xapi",
       'delete_post'        => "delete_xapi",
       'edit_posts'         => "edit_xapis",
       'edit_others_posts'  => "edit_others_xapis",
       'publish_posts'      => "publish_xapis",
       'read_private_posts'     => "read_private_xapis",
       'read'                   => "read",
