]);

Replied to Split Validation Errors

thanks for your reply. I get you can use the individual errors like that. my issue is say in validate(['password' => 'required|confirmed'] i have 2 input fields for password and password_confirmation splitting the errors so that required error in under the password input and the confirmed error is under the password confirmation input

For a form with password and password confirmation, is there a way to have the required error under one field and the confirmed error under another field

Started a new Conversation Passing Props To Vue

I'm passing multiple testimonial values from laravel to vue but on passing a multi paragraph, I get

invalid expression: '' string literal contains an unescaped line break in.

Everything else works but not if i go to next line or have an empty line. Is there a way around this?

Replied to Laravel Forge Droplet Recommendation

Vapors cost are a little over the budget for the projects at the moment. I'm just trying to find a baseline for running the projects initially. Ive used the minimum droplet for a few standard html based sites with no issues but a bit out of place with running needs when it comes to laravel sites with user logins, blogs, messaging etc

Replied to Laravel Forge Droplet Recommendation

Thanks but I had already gone through them and the last link he was looking at massive numbers of users. I was asking here as I was hoping some other Laravel specific developers would have more insight into recommendations

Started a new Conversation Laravel Forge Droplet Recommendation

I'm about to swap over to a forge managed server and wondering about the droplet size. There would be about 4 or 5 laravel sites, with at most 100 users using each site in total not concurrently. 2 or 3 membership sites and 2 basic business information sites. Any advise would be appreciated

Replied to Controller And Compact

thank you. i think I've been trying to over-complicate things

Activity icon

Started a new Conversation Controller And Compact

Is there a way to pass the same variable to all methods in a controller, instead of writing the same thing in each method. As in I have as below, written in each method so that a can pass it with compact to each returning view.

$status = auth()->user()->role;

Started a new Conversation On Login Redirect If User Status

I'm working on a membership site that requires all members to fill out the mandatory user survey before being able to use the rest of the site. Is there a way to check on login if the user table field "survey" is set to no and if so redirect them to the survey page until it has been completed?

Started a new Conversation Storage_link Copy Issue

I've come across an issue with copying a laravel folder to a backup. The storage__link in the public folder called storage doesnt copy and actually crashes the folder copy. Is there a way around this issue?
