Adding Registration Fields


Larakits registration page only accepts Name, Email, Password, and Terms & Conditions fields. You can include extra fields too. For that, follow the below instructions.

Modifying View

You can add website (namely) form field in the resources/views/vendor/larakits/auth/register.blade.php file under the Email field:

<!-- website -->
<div class="form-group">
	<input class="form-control {{ (bool) $errors->has('website') ? 'is-invalid' : '' }}" name="website" placeholder="{{ __('Website') }}" type="text" value="{{ old('website') }}">
	<div class="invalid-feedback">{{ $errors->first('website') }}</div>
<!-- end of website -->

Overriding Register Controller

To override RegisterController, create RegisterController.php file in the app/Http/Controller/Larakits/Auth directory and Paste the code snippet as given below in the RegiserController.php file:


namespace App\Http\Controllers\Larakits\Auth;

use Carbon\Carbon;
use Larakits\Larakits;
use Larakits\Rules\FullName;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Hash;
use Larakits\Events\Auth\UserRegistered;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Validator;
use Larakits\Http\Controllers\Auth\RegisterControllerasBase;

class RegisterController extends Base
	 * Get a validator for an incoming registration request.
	 * @param array $data
	 * @return \Illuminate\Contracts\Validation\Validator
	 protected function validator(array $data)
		$messages = [
			'agreed.required' => 'You have to accept our Terms & Conditions.'

		return Validator::make($data, [
			'name' => ['required', 'string', 'max:255', new FullName],
			'email' => ['required', 'string', 'email', 'max:255', 'unique:users'],
			'password' =>['required', 'string', 'min:6'],
			'agreed' => ['required'],
			'website' => ['required'] // for website form field
		], $messages);

	 * Create a new user instance after a valid registration.
	 * @param array $data
	 * @return Object
	 protected function create(array $data) : Object
		$user = Larakits::user()->create([
			'name' => $data['name'],
			'email' => $data['email'],
			'password' => Hash::make($data['password']),
			'trial_ends_at' => Larakits::trialDays() > 0 ?Carbon::now()->addDays(Larakits::trialDays()) : null,
			'country' => geoip()->getLocation(request()->ip)->iso_code,
			'website' => $data['website'] // for website form field

		event(new UserRegistered($user));

		return $user;

You may include validation rules for the website form field in the validator method and 'website' => $data['website'] in the create method of RegisterController class.

Overriding Register Route

Finally you have to override /register route. By default, the /register route uses Larakits\Http\Controller\Auth\RegisterController as controller class. So you have to place another /register route in routes/web.php file of your application that will use your overridden RegisterController:
