swindleNswoon left a reply on Bootstrap Navbar Toggle Dropdown Not Working

Also the above mix.autoload is no good anymore, causes npm to fail

swindleNswoon left a reply on Bootstrap Navbar Toggle Dropdown Not Working

So I am referencing Bootstrap directly through the Laravel framework via Laravel Mix, so the above example won't work as my app layout file doesn't look like that. Bootstrap itself is working fine except for the dropdown menu (hamburger icon) on small screens.

swindleNswoon started a new conversation Bootstrap Navbar Toggle Dropdown Not Working

Ok so I just deployed my website successfully and now he bootstrap toggle button is not working. I have followed the steps in this post:https://laracasts.com/discuss/channels/guides/bootstrap-4-dropdown-menu-is-not-working

And made sure that my Bootstrap markup is correct by copying and pasting direct from bootstrap docs.

I also added in the following to my webpack.mix.js file

    'jquery': ['$', 'window.jQuery', "jQuery", "window.$", "jquery", "window.jquery"],
    'popper.js/dist/umd/popper.js': ['Popper', 'window.Popper']
});

Any ideas/suggestions?

Server has redirected jackmattssonfoundation.com to www.jackmattssonfoundation.com 19 times before generating a too many redirects message

swindleNswoon started a new conversation Too Many Redirects Using Forge And Digital Ocean

Hey all, After trying multiple times to deploy my Laravel application on a HostGator shared server and failing miserably, I decided to switch over to Laravel Forge and Digital Ocean. I deployed the application successfully and was able to view it at its IP address, however when I switched the nameservers over on namecheap to digital ocean at first all I could see what a purple webpage with an option to search for related websites. I chalked this up to the DNS propagation time. Now 24 hours later, the purple webpage is gone and I'm getting a too many redirects error. I checked the network logs and get a 301 "Moved Permanently' error. Any ideas on how to fix this?

swindleNswoon left a reply on CAN'T UPDATE Terminal $PATH

Figured out my problem iTerm2 PREFERENCES > PROFILES > Login shell should be selected

swindleNswoon started a new conversation CAN'T UPDATE Terminal $PATH

So last week I updated iTerm2 and oh-my-zsh and I got an error message saying that the tmux, plugin was not working. So I Looked it up and it said online that I have to update my .zshrc file, so i updated said path and everything broke. Zsh suddenly couldn't find Homebrew or MySQL. SO I uninstalled and reinstalled mysql and homebrew and oh-my-zsh, still nothing. When I type in export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/mysql/bin, mysql suddenly work again. However I cant add this change permanently. I tried adding this to both my .zshrc file and my .bash-profile file. Neither work. when I echo out my path it seems very convoluted: /usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/Users/brianlynch/.composer/vendor/bin

I had zero problems when I installed everything the first time, I might do a totally fresh install of everything including iTerm 2 unless anyone has any suggestions?

Whoo! Sorry for the delay in response everybody, thanks to all who chimed in. I have found out the the BASE_URL is not the problem, the router get uri function is handling that. My problem is actually the .htaaccess file. I have to figure out how to write one of those for a PHP controller

swindleNswoon started a new conversation Where Do I Set A BASE_URL With A Controller?

Hey all, I'm using the PHP Practitioner series to build a website for a family website, I finished the website on my machine and loaded it onto a live server, and now none of the links are working correctly. I think I need to add a BASE_URL to my bootstrap file but how do I call it with the controller?

@JLRDW - Okay, I guess I wasn't sure how to ask the question, thank you for the quick response! I'll start looking for tutorials thank you!

swindleNswoon started a new conversation How To Add Form Data From Another Page To Database

Hello all, I'm building a website and donation portal for a charity organization. Up until this point I've followed the PHP Practitioner series to build the back-end of the website. I need to accept form data from another page besides index.php, what's the best way to do this?

swindleNswoon started a new conversation Opening Hidden Files In Sublime Text

Hey everybody, not sure if this is the right place for this, but I'm having an issue that by default when I open a hidden file in Sublime Text on OSX the contents of the file are hidden. I can open hidden files and see their content if I use the Command+Shift+. through Finder but is there anyway to set this to default? I'd like to be able to open hidden files and be able to edit them from Sublime Text and not through Finder.
