PHP laravel object not creating in 5.8


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have a PHP Laravel CRUD application I made where I am using MVC style. I have controllers views and models. My database migration is made and my table in the database is made with php artisan migrate. I am using php 7.3 and laravel 5.8.

On my create view I go to create a single object in my database and my errors are thrown saying nothing in text box (no input) If I comment out the errors then just I click my submit button and nothing happens nothing is entered into my db. I have looked at many different crud examples and I am not sure why my object isn’t being created. Here is what I have

	//view create
	<section id="section-content" class="text-center">
	    <div class="container contentdiv rounded">
	        <div class="row">
	            <div class="col-md-12">
	                <div class="pb-2 mt-4 mb-2 border-bottom clearfix">
	                    <h2>Create Contact</h2>
	                <div >
	                    <a class="btn btn-success" href="{{route('contacts.index')}}">Back</a>
	            <!-- <div class="col-md-10 mx-auto">
	                    <div class="alert alert-danger">
	                            @foreach($errors->all() as  $error)
	                                <li>{{ $error }}</li>
	                    </div><br />
	            </div> -->
	<div class="row">
	            <div class="col-md-10 mx-auto mt-3">
	                <form method="POST" action="{{ route('contacts.store') }}">
	                    <div class="form-group row">
	                        <label for="txtfn" class="col-sm-3"><b>First Name:</b></label>
	                        <div class="col-sm-9">
	                            <input type="text" class="form-control" name="txtfn" id="txtfn"/>
	                    <div class="form-group row">
	                        <label for="txtln" class="col-sm-3"><b>Last Name:</b></label>
	                        <div class="col-sm-9">
	                            <input type="text" class="form-control" name="txtln" id="txtln"/>
	                    <div class="form-group row">
	                        <label for="txtem" class="col-sm-3"><b>Email:</b></label>
	                        <div class="col-sm-9">
	                            <input type="text" class="form-control" name="txtem" id="txtem"/>
	                    <button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary">Create Contact</button>
	namespace App\Http\Controllers;
	use App\Contact;
	use Illuminate\Http\Request;
	class ContactController extends Controller
	    public function store(Request $request)
	            'first_name' => 'required',
	            'last_name' => 'required',
	            'email' => 'required'
	        $contact = new Contact([
	            'first_name' => $request->get('first_name'),
	            'last_name' => $request->get('last_name'),
	            'email' => $request->get('email'),
	            'job_title' => $request->get('job_title'),
	            'city' => $request->get('city'),
	            'country' => $request->get('country')
	        return redirect('/contacts')->with('success', 'Contact saved!');
	    public function index()
	        $contacts = Contact::all();
	        return view('contacts.index', compact('contacts'));
	     * Show the form for creating a new resource.
	     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
	    public function create()
	        return view('contacts.create');
	// model
	namespace App;
	use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;
	class Contact extends Model
	    protected $fillable = [

My env is setup correctly I just don’t get the not creating object.

I put the var dump in the store method
and nothing happened
If I insert a row manually then the row appears in my index and I get can get and show the row with the correct data in my show view. Only I cannot update and create it. I can also delete a record successfully

like this

$contact = new Contact([
            'first_name' => var_dump($request->get('first_name')),
