Adding Contact Fields


Once you include website form field in the registration page, you can add the form field to contact information section.

Larakits contact information section of the /settings page only accepts Name, Email, Phone, and Country fields. You may want to include extra fields for your application. Follow the bellow instructions to customize default Larakits contact information section.

Modifying Contact Information Component

You can add website form field in the resources/js/larakits-components/settings/navbar-items/personal/contact-information.jsx file under the Email field:

<Input label="Website" name="website" value={} onChange={website => this.setState({website})} errors={errors} />

Don’t forget to run npm run dev in your terminal to compile the Contact Information component.

Overriding Controller

To override contactInformation method of PersonalController, Create PersonalController.php file in the app/Http/Controller/Larakits/Settings directory and Paste the code snippet as given below:


namespace App\Http\Controllers\Larakits\Settings;

use Larakits\Rules\FullName;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\Http\JsonResponse;
use Larakits\Events\Profile\ContactInformationUpdated;
use Larakits\Http\Controllers\Settings\PersonalController as Base;

class PersonalController extends Base
     * Update currently logged in user contact information.
     * @param Request $request
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\JsonResponse
    public function contactInformation(Request $request) : JsonResponse
        $this->validate($request, [
            'name' => ['required', 'string', 'max:255', new FullName],
            'country' => 'required',
            'email' => 'required|email|unique:users,email,' . auth()->user()->id,
            'website' => 'required' // for website form field


            'name' => request('name'),
            'email' => request('email'),
            'phone' => request('phone'),
            'country' => request('country'),
            'website' => request('website'), // for website form field

        event(new ContactInformationUpdated($request->user()));

        return response()->json([
            'message' => 'Contact information updated'

You may include validation rules for the website form filed in the validate method and 'website' => request('website') in the update method.

Overriding Route

Finally you have to override /contact-information route. By default the /contact-information route uses Larakits\Http\Controller\Settings\PersonalController. So you have to place another /contact-information route in routes/web.php file that will use your overridden PersonalController.

Route::post('/contact-information', 'Larakits\Settings\PersonalController@contactInformation');
