Lara6 show error 404, while lara7 success. My project on Lara6 80% almost done. But why this prefix route show me error 404 ? This is the code

Route::prefix('admin')->group(function () {
    Route::get('users', function () {
        Echo 'Matches The "/admin/users" URL';

Started a new Conversation How To Redirect User With Pagination Button From Index To Another Blade File

my default view is index.blade.php, how can i redirect user from index.blade.php to next-pagination.blade.php when user click "next" or "back" button ? this is current code. The reason i want to change to next-pagination.blade.php because index and next-pagination have different layout design. i try to use withpath, but i confuse how to use it properly, like how can i pass my data from index to custom URI and then to another blade file.

//Article controller
$posts = Post::orderBy('created_at', 'desc')->simplepaginate(5);
return view('index.index', compact('posts'));
//Blade view
@foreach($posts as $post)
<div class="blog-post">
    <h3 class="blog-post-title"><a href="/{{$post->categori}}/{{$post->slug_url}}">{{ $post->title }}</a></h3>
{{ $posts->links('index.pagination') }}
//custom pagination button pagination.blade.view
@if ($paginator->hasPages())
    <nav class="blog-pagination">
        @if ($paginator->onFirstPage())
            <a class="btn btn-outline-secondary disabled" href="#" aria-disabled="true">Back</a>
             <a class="btn btn-outline-primary" href="{{ $paginator->previousPageUrl() }}">Back</a>

        @if ($paginator->hasMorePages())
            <a class="btn btn-outline-primary" href="{{ $paginator->nextPageUrl() }}">Next</a>
            <span class="btn btn-outline-secondary disabled" aria-disabled="true" href="#" >Next</span>
//index folder
-- index.blade.php
-- pagination.blade.php
-- next-pagination.blade.php

Started a new Conversation How To Access Json Column In Laravel

i edit laravel default user migration and i add meta column, and this meta column is where i save my data in json format. But now i'm bit confuse how to access this column. I use standar eloquen to get data from database

$website = User::find(1);
return view('website.index')->with('website',($website));

then in my blade file, i try this

{{ $website->meta->gender }}

and it give me error

Trying to get property 'gender' of non-object

i also try another method from stackoverflow ( :

$website = User::find(1);
return view('website.index')->with('website', json_decode($website, true));

//blade file
@foreach($website->meta as $member)
    gender: {{ $member['gender'] }}

but also it give me error

Array to string conversion 

and this is my current output if i use return view('my.blade, compact('mydata'))

///{!! $website !!}
