WP_User::level_reduction( int $max, string $item ): int

Chooses the maximum level the user has.

Description

Will compare the level from the $item parameter against the $max parameter. If the item is incorrect, then just the $max parameter value will be returned.

Used to get the max level based on the capabilities the user has. This is also based on roles, so if the user is assigned the Administrator role then the capability ‘level_10’ will exist and the user will get that value.

Parameters

$maxintrequired
Max level of user.
$itemstringrequired
Level capability name.

Return

int Max Level.

		$level = (int) $matches[1];
		return max( $max, $level );
	} else {
		return $max;
	}
