Yes, but to me that means we also need an addContent method. Otherwise people will have to carry a global $content along side $response, or use setContent(getContent().$additionalContent). -- Côme Chilliet FusionDirectory - https://www.fusiondirectory.org

I can see why we'd think that; it's symmetrical, if nothing else. Even so, none of the researched implementations have a method like that. As far as I can recall, they call have setContent() and getContent() equivalents, but no addContent() equivalent. They all work much like you point out here ...

.... although usually it's not a global $content. Instead, the $content is built up from a template or other subsystem of some sort, and then assigned to the response when complete. For example: $content = $template->render(); $response->setContent($content); So, I am reluctant to add something that no other implementations, across many years and many authors, have actually found a need for.
