Laravel Blog Package

Lightweight and Comprehensive

Incredible features with a lightweight laravel blog package. I highly recommend it because:

  • Quick installation (<3 minutes)
  • It's very easy to extend
  • Included great features out-of-box
  • Its simplicity allows to be easily made compatible with latest laravel
  • No additional concept except laravel knowledge
  • Compatible with other Laravel platforms like Bagisto

Outstanding Features

  • Fulltext Search - search throughout all blog posts
  • Multi Level Category - nested sets using Baum
  • Multi Language Support

Quick and easy installation (Multi-lang version)

1- Install via composer

composer require binshops/laravel-blog

For a fresh Laravel installation run the following too:

composer require laravel/ui
php artisan ui vue --auth

2- Run the following two commands to copy config file, migration files, and view files

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="BinshopsBlog\BinshopsBlogServiceProvider"

3- Execute migrations to create tables

php artisan migrate;

4- You must add one method to your \App\User (in laravel 8 \App\Models\User) model. As the name of this method shows it determines which user can manage posts. Place your logic there

     * Enter your own logic (e.g. if ($this->id === 1) to
     *   enable this user to be able to add/edit blog posts
     * @return bool - true = they can edit / manage blog posts,
     *        false = they have no access to the blog admin panel
    public function canManageBinshopsBlogPosts()
        // Enter the logic needed for your app.
        // Maybe you can just hardcode in a user id that you
        //   know is always an admin ID?

        if (       $this->id === 1
             && $this->email === ""

           // return true so this user CAN edit/post/delete
           // blog posts (and post any HTML/JS)

           return true;

        // otherwise return false, so they have no access
        // to the admin panel (but can still view posts)

        return false;

5- Create a directory in public/ named blog_images

6- Login as admin and setup your package: /blog_admin/setup

Congrats! Your blog is ready to use. (URLs are customizable in the config file)

Admin panel URI: /blog_admin Front URI: /en/blog

To see package on Packagist click this Link

Single Language Version

To install the single language version of the package use version v8.1x:

1- composer require binshops/laravel-blog:v8.1.2

2- php artisan vendor:publish --provider="BinshopsBlog\BinshopsBlogServiceProvider"

3- php artisan vendor:publish --tag=laravel-fulltext

4- php artisan migrate;

You can see the single version in "single-lang" branch.

Important Notes

  • For laravel 8.x's default auth User model, change user model in binshopsblog.php to: \App\Models\User::class


  • Compatible with latest laravel version (laravel 8.x)
  • Backward-compatibility with previous laravel versions
  • Full text search - searching throughout the blog posts
  • Multi-level category support
  • fully configurable via its config/binshopsblog.php config file
  • Ready to use admin panel
  • Full customizability of admin views and front views
  • Paginated views
  • Ability to upload images
  • Managing posts, categories
  • Managing comments and comment approval
  • Other options include using Disqus comments or disabling comments

Recent Changes

  • 9.1.x Multi language support
  • 8.0.x Compatibility with Laravel 8.x

What/who this package is for:

  • For websites running Laravel
  • Who wants to have a site blog. This laravel blog gives an easy to use interface to write blog posts/assign categories/manage existing posts
  • Where only admin users can edit/manage the blog (this is not suitable for every user on your site to be able to manage posts)
  • For anyone who likes to add a wordpress-like laravel blog to laravel website

How to customise the blog views/templates

After doing the correct vendor:publish, all of the default template files will be found in /resources/views/vendor/binshopsblog/ and are easy to edit to match your needs.

Customizing admin views

If you need to customize the admin view, just copy the files from vendor/binshopsblog/src/Views/binshopsblog_admin to resources/views/vendor/binshopsblog_admin Then you can modify them just like any other view file.


It will auto set all required routes (both public facing, and admin backend). There are some config options (such as changing the /blog/ url to something else), which can be done in the binshopsblog.php file.

Config options

All config options have comments which describe what they do. Please just refer to the binshopsblog.php file in your /config/ dir.

Custom User Model

You can change the default user model through the config file.


You can find all the events that are fired by looking in the /src/Events directory.

Add these (and an Event Listener) to your EventServiceProvider.php file to make use of these events when they fire.

Built in CAPTCHA / anti spam

There is a built-in captcha (anti-spam comment) system built in, which will be easy for you to replace with your own implementation.

There is a basic anti-spam captcha function built-in.

See the config/binshops.php captcha section. There is a built in system (basic!) that will prevent most automated spam attempts. Writing your own captcha system:

I wrote the captcha system simple on purpose, so you can add your own captcha options. It should be easy to add any other captcha system to this.

If you want to write your own implementation then create your own class that implements \BinshopsBlog\Interfaces\CaptchaInterface, then update the config/binshopsblog.php file (change the captcha_type option).

There are three methods you need to implement: public function captcha_field_name() : string

Return a string such as "captcha". It is used for the form validation and . public function view() : string

What view file should the binshops::partials.add_comment_form view include? You can set this to whatever you need, and then create your own view file. The default included basic captcha class will return "binshops::captcha.basic". public function rules() : array

Return an array for the rules (which are just the standard Laravel validation rules. This is where you can check if the captcha was successful or not. Optional: public function runCaptchaBeforeShowingPosts() : null

This isn't part of the interface, it isn't required. By default it does nothing. But you can put some code in this method and it'll be run in the BinshopsReaderController::viewSinglePost method.

Image upload errors

Try adding this to config/app.php:

'Image' => Intervention\Image\Facades\Image::class
  • Also make sure that /tmp is writable. If you have open_basedir enabled, be sure to add :/tmp to its value.
  • Ensure that /public/blog_images (or whatever directory you set it to in the config) is writable by the server
  • You might need to set a higher memory limit, or upload smaller image files. This will depend on your server. I've used it to upload huge (10mb+) jpg images without problem, once the server was set up correctly to handle larger file uploads.

    I installed this with a basic Laravel 7 setup. Ran the ui and your composer and then migrate etc. I also amended the User.php as instructed and ran the migration.

    I amended your config file to set User to \App\User.

    Logged in on my local machine by registering and of course I got to the "your are logged in".

  • Url Length Exceeded

    Url Length Exceeded

    You guys are using patch method while editing post. When you change the language the whole content of the post is coming with the url which can be problematic for server because we can not specify the length of the url. If the content of the blog will increase it will cause Url too long, length exceeded error. I would recommend instead of get use post method. Because I'm facing this issue on our live server. Thanks

  • Database seeder uses MySQL injection

    Database seeder uses MySQL injection

    CreateLaravelFulltextTable-class contains direct DB::Connection injection which creates columns for text search which uses however MySQL specific column type. Of course this works only when used DB engine is actually MySQL and perhaps MariaSQL.

    However, before knew of this, I l already selected Postgresql so did have to commented out two lines that specific class before it went trough.

    And you should suggest npm commands anyway since if took code via composer it does not contains predefined web files.

    but if I try to iterate over, there is no relationship available to get the category name.

    The provided code in categories.blade.php also does not work:

  • Lazy Loading issues across the package

    Lazy Loading issues across the package

    There are a number of lazy loading issues across the package that start to arise once I have added more than one post, you are calling model relationships within views which is not ideal, it should be called with a YourModel::with('relation')->get() before passing into the view. I know I could turn off lazy loading but that is not ideal for performance.

    An example is line 58 of your NinshopsAdmin Controller. looks like this: $posts = BinshopsPostTranslation::orderBy("post_id", "desc")->where('lang_id', $language_id) ->paginate(10);

    should be this:

    $posts = BinshopsPostTranslation::with(['post'])->orderBy("post_id", "desc")->where('lang_id', $language_id) ->paginate(10);

    as you are calling $post->post->name in the view, there are a number of other instances as well.

    A few mistakes

    Hi, Version 9.2.x Laravel v8.78.1 (PHP v8.0.10)

    1. Post publish to PL:

    ErrorException Attempt to read property "slug" on null (View: \www\blog\vendor\binshops\laravel-blog\src\Views\binshopsblog_admin\posts\edit_post.blade.php) http://blog.test/blog_admin/edit_post/1

    1. Does not display posts and categories in PL on the list of all entries. - DASHBOARD
    2. It does not convert Polish characters in URLs - (ą => a, ć => c, etc.)
    3. Why can't you only make a Polish version? How do I remove the prefix /pl/ or /en/ from a URL?
    4. How to set an entry as: domain.test/name-title-post ?? (At least for the site's default version.)
    5. /blog_admin/add_post_toggle - The categories to be displayed are not showing.

    Will the single language version be developed?
