Here i will give you full example of how to create contact form in laravel 8. So let's see the bellow example and follow step by step.

Step 1: Install Laravel Project


First, you need to download the laravel fresh setup. Use this command then download laravel project setup :

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog

Step 2: Setup Database

After successfully install laravel 8 Application, Go to your project .env file and set up database credential and move next step :

DB_CONNECTION=mysql

DB_HOST=127.0.0.1

DB_PORT=3306

DB_DATABASE=here your database name

DB_USERNAME=here database username

DB_PASSWORD=here database password

Step 3: Create Migration

we are going to create file upload application for students. so we have to create migration for "contacts" table and create model using Laravel 8 php artisan command, so first fire bellow command:

php artisan make:migration Contacts

After this command you will find one file in following path "database/migrations" and you have to put bellow code in your migration file for create students table

<?php

use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;

use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

class CreateContactsTable extends Migration

{

/**

* Run the migrations.

*

* @return void

*/

public function up()

{

Schema::create('contacts', function (Blueprint $table) {

$table->id();

$table->string('name');

$table->string('email');

$table->string('phone');

$table->string('subject');

$table->text('message');

$table->timestamps();

});

}

/**

* Reverse the migrations.

*

* @return void

*/

public function down()

{

Schema::dropIfExists('contacts');

}

}

Now you have to run this migration by following command:

php artisan migrate

Now you can add table field in Contact model :

App/Models/Contact.php

<?php

namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class Contact extends Model

{

use HasFactory;

/**

* The attributes that are mass assignable.

*

* @var array

*/

public $fillable = [

'name', 'email', 'phone', 'subject', 'message'

];

}

Step 4: Add Route

Here, we need to add route for ajax form submit. so open your "routes/web.php" file and add following route.

routes/web.php

use App\Http\Controllers\ContactController;

Route::get('/contact-form', [App\Http\Controllers\ContactController::class, 'contactForm'])->name('contact-form');

Route::post('/contact-form', [App\Http\Controllers\ContactController::class, 'storeContactForm'])->name('contact-form.store');

Step 5: Add Controller

In this step, now we should create new controller as ContactController. So run bellow command and create new controller. bellow controller for create ContactController.

php artisan make:controller ContactController

After bellow command you will find new file in this path "app/Http/Controllers/ContactController.php".

In this controller will create two methods as bellow:

1)contactForm()

2)storeContactForm()

So, let's copy bellow code and put on ContactController.php file.

app/Http/Controllers/ContactController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use App\Models\Contact;

use Mail;

class ContactController extends Controller

{

public function contactForm()

{

return view('contactForm');

}

public function storeContactForm(Request $request)

{

$request->validate([

'name' => 'required',

'email' => 'required|email',

'phone' => 'required|digits:10|numeric',

'subject' => 'required',

'message' => 'required',

]);

$input = $request->all();

Contact::create($input);

// Send mail to admin

\Mail::send('contactMail', array(

'name' => $input['name'],

'email' => $input['email'],

'phone' => $input['phone'],

'subject' => $input['subject'],

'message' => $input['message'],

), function($message) use ($request){

$message->from($request->email);

$message->to('admin@admin.com', 'Admin')->subject($request->get('subject'));

});

return redirect()->back()->with(['success' => 'Contact Form Submit Successfully']);

}

}

Step 6: Add Blade

In last step. In this step we have to create two blade file contactForm and second is mail file. So mainly we have to create contactForm file and contactMail file. So finally you have to create two following bellow blade file:

1) contactForm.blade.php

2) contactMail.blade.php

So let's just create following file and put bellow code.

resources/views/contactForm.blade.php
