#50962 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

WP_HTTP_Response should have protected properties

Reported by: daniel217 Owned by:

Component: REST API Keywords: close
Focuses: rest-api Cc:


I think this is a bug because there is a getter / setter for these properties:

$data - get_data(), set_data( $data )
$status - get_status (), set_status ( $code )
$headers - get_headers(), set_headers( $headers ), header( $key, $value, $replace )

Thanks for the ticket @daniel217 and welcome to trac!

From my perspective, I agree that it would be better for these to be protected properties. But unfortunately I don’t think it would be possible to change that at this point without breaking backward compatibility. I’ve seen plenty of plugins that do set those properties manually.

We could change it to protected and implement __get, but I don’t think we get much benefit at that point.

I'm going to go ahead and close this @daniel217. Like I explained in my previous comment, I would've preferred it to have that format but I think it is too late to do so without introducing BC concerns.
