A Complete Guide For Creating Contact Form In Laravel 5.8

In this tutorial i’m going to learn how to create working contact form in laravel in easy steps, please follow this tutorial i mentioned below.

Step 1: Install Laravel 5.8

composer create-project — prefer-dist laravel/laravel contact “5.8.*”

2nd go to .env folder and put database name as :- contact

Next to create model migration and controller please run below command

php artisan make:model Contact -m

Next go to your migration and paste below code

<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;

class CreateContactsTable extends Migration
{
/**
* Run the migrations.
*
* @return void
*/
public function up()
{
Schema::create('contacts', function (Blueprint $table) {
$table->bigIncrements('id');
$table->string('name');
$table->string('email');
$table->string('address');
$table->string('state');
$table->string('city');
$table->string('phone');
$table->timestamps();
});
}

/**
* Reverse the migrations.
*
* @return void
*/
public function down()
{
Schema::dropIfExists('contacts');
}
}

Now migrate the table

Next go to contact model Contact.php and paste this code ?

<?php

namespace App;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class Contact extends Model
{
protected $fillable = [
'name',
'email',
'address',
'state',
'city',
'phone'
];
}

Let’s go to create controller file as run below command

Php artisan make:controller ContactController -r

Go to ContactController and paste below code in ContactController.php

Paste this code

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Contact;

class ContactController extends Controller
{
/**
* Display a listing of the resource.
*
* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
*/
public function index()
{
return view('contact');
}

/**
* Show the form for creating a new resource.
*
* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
*/
public function create()
{
//
}

/**
* Store a newly created resource in storage.
*
* @param \Illuminate\Http\Request $request
* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
*/
public function store(Request $request)
{
$request->validate([

'name'=> 'required',
'email'=> 'required',
'address'=> 'required',
'state' => 'required',
'city' => 'required',
'phone'=> 'required'
]);

$form_data = array(
'name' =>$request->name,
'email'=>$request->email,
'address'=>$request->address,
'state'=>$request->state,
'city'=>$request->city,
'phone'=>$request->phone
);

Contact::create($form_data);
return redirect('thanks', 'Request has been sent successfully');


}

/**
* Display the specified resource.
*
* @param int $id
* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
*/
public function show($id)
{
//
}

/**
* Show the form for editing the specified resource.
*
* @param int $id
* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
*/
public function edit($id)
{
//
}

/**
* Update the specified resource in storage.
*
* @param \Illuminate\Http\Request $request
* @param int $id
* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
*/
public function update(Request $request, $id)
{
//
}

/**
* Remove the specified resource from storage.
*
* @param int $id
* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
*/
public function destroy($id)
{
//
}
}

Next go to your route/web.php and paste below code

<?php

/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Web Routes
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These
| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which
| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!
|
*/

Route::get('/', function () {
return view('welcome');
});

Route::get('contact','ContactController@index');
Route::post('contact','ContactController@store')->name('store');

Let’s create view page Resources/views/contact.blade.php
