Replied to I Buyed Laravel Spark(unlimited) Recently, Do I Get The Update For Spark 6.0 For Free ?

Very disappointed with this as well. It makes no sense to me why they would choose to set it up this way.

Replied to Laravel Route Group Not Working Properly

Thanks for the reply @bugsysha . Even with making that parameter required it still caused the same error. The reason I felt that the functionality was not correct is because to my understanding of the Prefix function, it's only supposed to add the prefix to routes within the function, which therefore mean only those routes should look for that optional (or required) locale parameter.

The reason why I was hoping to get this to work as is was that my blog posts were configured to be matched just to domain.com/{slug}. I had to change the url structure of the whole blog to /blog/{slug} and also move all of the prefixed routes with locales to the bottom of the router to get it work properly now.

So it's functioning now, but I still feel like I'm missing something for optimum implementation.

Replied to Laravel Route Group Not Working Properly

Hi guys, I'm having a similar problem.

Auth::routes();

Route::group(['middleware' => 'localization', 'prefix' => '{locale?}'], function () {

   Route::get('/', '[email protected]')->name('welcome');

   Route::resource('courses', 'CoursesController');

   Route::resource('private-lessons', 'PrivateLessonController');

   Route::get('/pricing', '[email protected]')->name('pricing');

   Route::get('contact', '[email protected]')->name('contact');

   Route::post('/contact', '[email protected]')->name('contact');

   Route::resource('teachers', 'TeacherController');

   Route::get('/locations/{location}', '[email protected]');

});

Route::get('/about', '[email protected]')->name('about');

// Route::view('/about', 'about');

The issue for me is that any routes below the route group just redirect back to the home page. If I move the routes above the group they work, like the Auth routes.

It seems that the middleware is being applied to routes outside of the middleware group, and then every first route parameter is being used as the {locale?}, and then it's being redirected back to the home page.

When I change the middleware to include this test:

public function handle($request, Closure $next)
    {
        if (! in_array($request->locale, ['en', 'nl'])) {
            abort(400);
        }

        App::setlocale($request->locale);

        return $next($request);
    }

Then the routes throw an error instead of redirecting to the home page.

Does anyone see what I'm doing wrong here? Thanks for the help!
