Form submit not working

Posted 1 year ago by Shoken

I've been stuck with this issue for serveral hours, so hopefully some of you can help. Thanks in advance.

The issue is simple: when I click the form's submit button, nothing happens. Like, literally nothing. No errors, anything. Before starting developing the form I had created the Message model by doing

php artisan make:model Message --resource

Thus I have the methods create, store etc.. already done and ready (thanks artisan!). In my route web.php route file, I have:


This should automatically link all the methods, right?

Anyway, my form is:

{!!  Form::open(['action' => '[email protected]', 'method' => 'POST']) !!}
                                    <ul class="row">
                                        <li class="col-sm-6">
                                                {{Form::text('name', '', ['class' => 'form-control'])}}
                                        <li class="col-sm-6">
                                                {{Form::text('email', '', ['class' => 'form-control', 'placeholder' => 'Your email'])}}
                                        <li class="col-sm-12">
                                                {{Form::textarea('message','', ['class' => 'form-control'])}}
                                        {{Form::submit('Submit', ['class' => 'btn-round'])}}

                                    {!! Form::close() !!}

and my [email protected] looks like this:

 public function store(Request $request)
        $this -> validate($request, [
            'name' => 'required',
            'email' => 'required',
            'message' => 'required'

        $message = new Message();
        $message -> name= $request -> input('name');
        $message -> email= $request -> input('email');
        $message -> text= $request ->input('text');
        $message -> user_id = Auth::user()->id;


        return redirect('/');

The controller just doesn't seem to work because even if I cut validation, nothing happens. I have no clue what I'm doing wrong!
