Item Management

All three types of users have access to a tags management table page.

Item Management is the most advanced example included in the PRO theme because every item has a picture, has a category and has multiple tags. The item management can be accessed by clicking Items Management from the Laravel Examples section of the sidebar or adding /items-management in the url. The authenticated user as an Admin or Creator is able to add, edit and delete items. For adding a new item you can press the Add Item button or add in the url /new. If you would like to edit or delete a tag you can click on icons in the Action column. It is also possible to sort the fields or chnage pagination.

On the page for adding a new item you will find a form which allows you to add an image of the item, to fill the name, excerpt, description of the item, a dropdown to choose the category and a multiselect for the tags.

The `App\Http\Controllers\ItemController.php` handles data validation when adding a new item and the item creation(see snippet below):

    public function store(Request $request)
        $attributes = request()->validate([
            'name' => ['required', 'unique:items'],
            'excerpt' => ['max:100'],
            'description' => ['max:255'],
            'choices-category' => ['required'],
            'tags' => ['required'],

        $item = Item::create([
            'name' => $request->get('name'),
            'excerpt' => $request->get('excerpt'),
            'description' => $request->get('description'),
            'category_id' => $request->get('choices-category'),
            'date' => $request->get('date'),
            'status' => $request->get('status'),
            'show_on_homepage' => $request->get('show_on_homepage'),
            'options' => $request->get('option')

For deleting an item is necessary to remove the association between item and tags. The same controller handles the deletion of an item:

    public function delete($id) {
        $item = Item::find($id);
        $this->showSuccesNotification = true;
