How to show post using another column than ID

Posted 11 months ago by pickab00

I have a table called Post and i want to show the different single posts using the show method. But i want to use my post_id instead of id.

The thing is i am using id for updating my posts. but i want to use post_id to show the posts. when i try:

      <a href={{route('post.show', $post->post_id)}}>{{$post->name}}</a>

it gives me 404. But when i use $post->id it works. Does it has to do with id being the primary key? how can i achieve this?i want to update the posts using id but show the posts using post_id column.
