Just a quick tip. I’ve noticed a really typical mistake by developers, which caused some headache for myself and for others – you add a new field into the database table, but for some reason it isn’t automatically saved.
The full situation – you’ve added a field into a database, made and run a migration for that, and then just add it to the form. Of course, Laravel should take care of it with Model::create($request->all()), right? But sometimes it doesn’t. Because you forget to add a new field to the $fillable array.
In the Eloquent models there’s an array which defines what fields are automatically filled with create() method:
protected $fillable = ['first_name', 'last_name', 'email'];
So, for example, if you add a new field address to this table, please don’t forget to add it to $fillable array – otherwise it won’t be saved. The worst part is that Laravel won’t throw any error – it would just save the row without that column value.
As I said – just a quick tip. Hope that helps!
