Replied to Laracast Comments Bugs

Thanks @jeffreyway the edit box nows goes away and mentions work, however the orginal bug with editing threads still parsists. Sorry to be a bother.

Also idea, Maybe you could make a github repo for the soul purpose of reporting bugs/feature requests on laracasts? Or do you have other official ways of doing so?

You could even do a series on it going through various bugs people report or new feartures. I know you dabbled with in one of your other series.

Replied to Laravel 6 On Shared Hosting Not Working

I think its because of laravel 6's new AWS serverless capabilities.

Frameworks are really not ment to be ran on shared hosting because of the restrictions they put in place.

Replied to What Is The Best Approach To Get Pc Name Or Unique Identifier?

There is no way for you to just get infomation about a user or their system part from the user agent. There is no uniqueness to a request other then their IP, but even this isnt unique as they could be using a VPN or on a shared network.

Replied to Can't Get Ignition To Open File In Phpstorm

Do you get the same as me?

Protocol phpstorm:// is unknown

or a different error, for some reason there is no PHPStorm URI on my PC, and google doesnt really answer the question of IF phpstorm even has a URI

Replied to Duplicate Hour_start & Hour_end

I'm guessing your doing something like Trainging::create($conflictTraining) and the id collumn is colliding.

Try doing

$conflictTraining = Training::where('fk_motorbike', $fk_motorbike)
            ->whereDate('date_seance', "=" , $date_start)
            ->where('hour_start', "<=" , $hour_start)
            ->where('hour_end', "<=" , $hour_end)

Started a new Conversation Laracast Comments Bugs

So I was watching the new Laravel 6 video and left a comment that for me, a fresh laravel 6.0 install still uses whoops, I instantly noticed when i posted the comment it was posted "5 hours ago"

Bug 1. New comments labels as being posted "5 hours ago"

https://i.imgur.com/eoxfTLH.gifv -- FIXED

Bug 2. Mentions arent posting correctly? (At least on edit)

https://i.imgur.com/iXAqsy3.gifv -- FIXED

Edit, Also on new comments: https://i.imgur.com/ocLsecH.gifv Also the autoscroll is annoying, can we remove it? Escpecially since it auto scrolled past the comment i posted.

Bug 3. When editing a (this) thread you need to reselect the section to post to?


Update, To recreate post a thread, edit that thread, then edit it again and the section is black and you need to select it. Refreshing the page fixes this.
