I'm using a vendor package, but I wanted to add a new field to a table for a new flag value. I've gone through the migration and added the field, I can adjust it manually, that all works, but now I want to be able to adjust a form to submit to the table directly.
So far I've:
Extended model declared as so:
class ForumCategory extends \Riari\Forum\Models\Category
Relevant service provider code:
$loader = \Illuminate\Foundation\AliasLoader::getInstance(); $loader->alias('\Riari\Forum\Models\Category', '\App\ForumCategory');
Everything appears to be working (as I have no errors or exceptions), I'm checking the request values and the form is passing the value, all the names line up, but it's not saving the form field to the new table field as expected.
I'm a relative newcomer to Laravel but fairly savvy with PHP, so I'm assuming there's something Laravel-specific that's thwarting me. Any suggestions or general guidance would be greatly appreciated!
