Started a new Conversation Laravel 4.2 - 7 Upgrade, Users Passwords Update

So I have an old Laravel 4.2 project I'd like to bring up to date. I realise I can't just upgrade Laravel, I will have to start a, new L7 project and gradually migrate and refractor my old code into it. I plan to start a new project, add auth, tweak user model and go from there.

But it strikes me I going to run into an issue with existing users passwords, which need to continue to work.

I guess I need to add a password-version field to my user model and set that to say v1 for all existing users. New users get set with v2 password from get go and they will just work. Existing users, first time they login, I detect they are v1 and somehow use old hashing algorithm to check password, if correct, rehash password while have it as plaintext, save new hash and set user as v2 pwd version.

Does that sound about right? Any pointers regarding how to call old hashing mechanism?

Replied to Weird Laravel Cors Issues

In case anyone else hits this error, was being dumb, was trying to pull a reference to a vimeo html page into an html5 video player

Started a new Conversation Weird Laravel Cors Issues

So I've got a fairly basic Laravel 5.6(.16) project and I'm having all sorts of issues with Cors.

The latest one is with Vimeo. I'm just trying to pull in a video and I get the error

Cross-Origin Read Blocking (CORB) blocked cross-origin response https://vimeo.com/412841518 with MIME type text/html. See https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/5629709824032768 for more details.

(At the moment that's just a random vimeo video reference)

I gotta be honest I don't understand Cors and I don't understand what we should be doing to fix this. I did try to create a middleware to set response->header('Access-Control-Allow-Origin', '*') but that seemed to make no difference.

Any pointers much appreciated!!
