My residence organization was experiencing growing discomforts and also taking up more than the typical time, my four-year-old was just in preschool part-time, my partner had not been pulling his weight on the home front, and also my prolonged household was experiencing several crises. I'm too old adequate to recognize there is never a perfect time in life-- you live the one you've got.

    The default expectation on eloquent models is that your models table contain 2 timestamp fields: created_at & updated_at. What a lot of people might not realize is just how easy it is to customize and manipulate these fields and or to disable them. Let's take a look at a few ways to manipulate and customize these fields. Generating tables without timestamps The command to generate a migration php artisan make:migrate CreateNewTable Will produce a migration file with the following function /** * Run the migrations. * * @return void */ public function up() { Schema::create('test', function (Blueprint $table) { $table->id(); $table->timestamps(); }); } To simply exclude the timestamps from the migration and table remove $table->timestamps(); This will generate a new table without timestamps, however Eloquent is still going to expect timestamps to be present. To resolve this, open the tables model and add the following <?php namespace App; use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model; class Test extends Model { public $timestamps = FALSE; //rest of class } Just like that, your eloquent model is not using timestamps and related errors will not be generated. Timestamp Date & Time Format The default format for dates is: Y-m-d H:i:s. To customize the format there is a $dateFormat property available. This property determines how date attributes are stored in the database, as well as their format when the model is serialized to an array or JSON. <?php namespace App; use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model; class Test extends Model { public $timestamps = FALSE; /** * The storage format of the model's date columns. * * @var string */ protected $dateFormat = 'U'; //rest of class } Custom Timestamp Names If a condition ever came that would require you to adjust the name of the timestamp column on any database table there is a very painless way to accomplish this. To do this, just add the corresponding const to your model like so. <?php namespace App; use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model; class Test extends Model { /** * Changes the default field name: created_at * to custom_create **/ const CREATED_AT = 'custom_create'; /** * Changes the default field name: updated_at * to custom_update */ const UPDATED_AT = 'custom_update'; public $timestamps = FALSE; /** * The storage format of the model's date columns. * * @var string */ protected $dateFormat = 'U'; //rest of class } As a reminder, the created_at and updated_at fields do not need to be cast to dates, as they already are and can perform carbon operations directly on them, Hope you enjoyed!

    One of the most fascinating features I find with Laravel is the "magic" around "Eloquent Accessors" and the minimum code required to make it work. In terms of code organization & maintenance, I find it to be a great solution. Let's take a look at how accessors work. One of the easiest examples to produce is a typical users table, with separate fields for first name and last name. Without accessors, we would have to concatenate the two fields, throughout the application like this: //inside a blade {{$user->first_name}} {{$user->last_name}} //inside a controller or other php file $name = $user->first_name.' '.$user->last_name; As you can see, that's is a bit ideal, especially through a large application where this code would be present. Updating would be very time consuming, so instead on the model, let's define an accessor. public function getFullNameAttribute() { return $this->first_name.' '.$this->last_name; } Now through out the application we can call this code $user->full_name; As a personal preference, I like to keep my accessors short and simple, I try not to put to much "logic" into my accessors to prevent bugs and other issues. If my accessor requires a lot of logic, I will break it up into additional model methods. What do you think, do you employ Eloquent Accessors in your project?

    Online forums are not dead and still maintain a great benefit to members and web visitors. It does not matter if your a business, marketer, blogger, or just an every-day joe; forums have their use. Online forums are an excellent resource for many reasons. Forums or online communities is a website where members can share knowledge, experiences, and ideas with other members. There are several active forums online, some focusing on specific industries and niches. Forum members share valuable information & experiences, which gives the community owner a tool to tailor their forum to suit the needs of their customers and clients. Online Identity Creating your forum profile is an opportunity to define who you are, be who you want to be, depending on the niche of the forum you join. Your forum identity goes beyond just your avatar and the about me on your profile. Your online identity is built through your actions and active participation. Engage in the forum discussions, post new questions and topics, help solve other issues, and start communication with other members. As you continue to build your identity, you will develop your brand's identity contributing to its future success. Gain More Knowledge Answering questions and showing some understanding of the topic, a forum member can improve their knowledge of their niche or industry. By answering questions, they strengthen their knowledge and leave a trail of experience behind them. A forum user posts a question or answers to learn more about their topic. By sharing this information, they help answer queries, which further leaves a trail of helpful information for other members. Benefits include interaction with other members and new ideas. Many businesses enjoy the flow of knowledge on forums, especially if the topic pertains to their industry. These members seek more relevant posts, knowing that the latest developments will probably be posted in the most relevant areas of the forum. Quality Backlinks All forums are not created or maintained equally. A well-managed forum will have a good presence on search engines, which will help produce organic traffic to your online business or website. Every time a forum member posts a question or reply, it creates another link to their website. People search for answers on forums regularly to understand more about the field they are working or learning. Even today, the most straightforward formula for any online business still holds; the more targeted traffic you can bring to your site, the more conversions you can have, resulting in more profits. Finding help A forum member posts to help solve problems, which is a basic human need. The members answer their questions, and the collective replies help the member to resolve the issue. A forum member posts a question to get answers to questions or issues that are previously not understood, which is a basic human need. The topic gets lots of responses from people with a wide range of experience, knowledge, and expertise. As members get the answer to their questions, the collective replies help the member to resolve the issue. The interaction on the forum leaves a trail of valuable feedback for the owner, which further adds to the usefulness of the online community. Natural Networking Forums offer a unique ability over physical and other connecting methods. Forums are always available, and if you remain active, your posts will always be found. Members and visitors who come across your topics, and find it interesting or helpful may connect & interact with you all day, every day. New Ideas Forums offer a wealth of information, knowledge, and experiences. The more active you are, the more discussions you will have in greater depths. The more conversations you participate in, the more likely it could spark business or product ideas anew. Even if a new million-dollar idea does not present itself, you will have made connections and have identified mutual opportunities to drive wider success The advantages of joining online forums far exceed these eight reasons why you should join a forum. However, regardless, if you join a community and do not engage and participate, you will not reap the benefits that come. Ready to join an online forum, join Market Street Forum, and start building for now & the future.

    Many people are trying to figure out how to start affiliate marketing without having any experience at all. Many people end up frustrated because they end up not being able to find the right information that will help them begin affiliate marketing. The sad thing is that a lot of these beginners end up losing hundreds and thousands of dollars. Simply because they didn't know what to do when it came to setting up their website or blog, and believing they would save money buying "Done-for-you" systems and services. It is not a secret that affiliate marketing is one of the most popular ways to make money online. This is especially true if you have a product that people want to buy or if you can sell products on behalf of other companies. If you are already selling something, you may want to look into using another business opportunity to get more traffic to your own website. A good trick is to offer items that complement each other, even if provided by another company. You can try using Google Places or local business directories for marketing your website and finding affiliates. You may also want to check your email to see if anyone has expressed interest in buying something from you. Finally, you should focus on producing the kind of content that will encourage people to give you their contact information.
