Setting up the users table ready to store user information. We create all the fields required for our authentication system.

The Database

We look at creating a route to a home controller and render the home view, not as hard as it sounds!

Creating the Home Page

Creating the main template using the blade template system.


It's a breeze to set up the ability to send email with Laravel 4, as well as establishing a connecting to our database. We test both the database connection and SMTP email in this part.

PDO and SMTP E-mail

Creating a form and the functionality to allow a user to create an account within our application.

Creating Accounts Part 1

Creating a form and the functionality to allow a user to create an account within our application.

Creating Accounts Part 2

Sending an email to a user to make them activate their account by email. You can skip doing this, but it's a great way to avoid spam account creation.

E-mail Activation

The ability to sign in to our application and greet the user by their username once they are.

Signing In

Simply allowing a signed in user to sign out of their account.

Signing Out

We bake in the 'remember me' checkbox into the sign in form, letting users remain signed in when they return to your application.

Remember Me

Once a user is signed in, they should be able to change their password. We build the form and hashing functionality to check the old password and create a new one.

Changing Passwords

Building a /user/[user] style URL to point to a registered user's profile. This is extremely easy to do and you can output any information about the user.

User Profiles

We build a form to allow a user to recover their account. This sends them a new password by email and a link to confirm their new password.

Account Recovery

Using migrations to effectively manage your database changes and make your development within Laravel a lot easier.
