Add [title] to fillable property to allow mass assignment on [App\Post].

Published 1 month ago by hamilton

Hi Folks,

I'm new to Laravel (5.7) and trying to save to DB using Post::create()

Despite having:

protected $fillable = ['title','content'];

in the Post model when I attempt to run:

'title' => 'Post Title',
    'content' => 'Post Content' 

I get:

"Add [title] to fillable property to allow mass assignment on [App\Post]."

I searched everywhere for solution but come up with nothing so for.

Any help appreciated. If more info required let me know.



Shouldn't $fillable be a public property?

Edit: sorry, protected is correct.


I created the model in Terminal using:

php artisan make:model Post

Resulting code generated:

use SoftDeletes;

protected $dates = ['deleted_at'];
protected $fillable = ['title','content'];
public function user() {
    return $this->belongsTo('App\User');

open tinker and type dump(new Post)

Is $fillable listed?


Hi guys,

Thanks for your suggestions.

Turns out I working on a model of the same name but in a different but similarly named project!

I added:

protected $fillable = ['title','content'];

Then everything worked as expected.

Sorry for wasting your time.
