I'm trying to upgrade my project L5.1 -> L5.2. In upgrade guide there's one thing which isn't clear for me:

The lists method on the Collection, query builder and Eloquent query builder objects has been renamed to pluck. The method signature remains the same.

That's ok, rename refactoting from lists() to pluck() isn't a problem. But what with useful pluck() method which was in L5.0 and L5.1?

From the 5.0 documentation:

Retrieving A Single Column From A Row

$name = DB::table('users')->where('name', 'John')->pluck('name');

What is the alternative for old pluck() method in L5.2?



var_dump(DB::table('users')->where('id', 1)->pluck('id'));


// int(1)


// array(1) { [0]=> int(1) }



The current alternative for pluck() is value().

If you're on Laravel 5.2 and using MySQL, there was a bit of a "bug" introduced with the timestamps. You can read all about the issue on github here. It has to do with the timestamp defaults, and MySQL automatically assigning DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP or ON UPDATE CURRENT_TIMESTAMP attributes under certain conditions.

Basically, you have three options.

  1. Update MySQL variable:

If you set the explicit_defaults_for_timestamp variable to TRUE, no timestamp column will be assigned the DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP or ON UPDATE CURRENT_TIMESTAMP attributes automatically. You can read more about the variable here.

  1. Use nullable timestamps:

Change $table->timestamps() to $table->nullableTimestamps(). By default, the $table->timestamps() command creates timestamp fields that are not nullable. By using $table->nullableTimestamps(), your timestamp fields will be nullable, and MySQL will not automatically assign the first one the DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP or ON UPDATE CURRENT_TIMESTAMP attributes.

  1. Define the timestamps yourself:

Instead of using $table->timestamps, use $table->timestamp('updated_at'); $table->timestamp('created_at'); yourself. Make sure your 'updated_at' field is the first timestamp in the table, so that it will be the one that is automatically assign the DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP or ON UPDATE CURRENT_TIMESTAMP attributes.

I ended up coding my own Auth system...

Using session() and Input()

Try something like this, it should work using map...

return $TheEpisode->TheNumbers->map(function ($episode) {
    return ['episodeNumber' => $episode['episodeNumber']];

I have a same problem on a half of month ago.

The reason is when I post on valid route, it redirects from http to https (configured by .htaccess), so "POST" method becomes "GET" and you see a MethodNotAllowedException.

Check your browser and follow the request, you may see the accurate problem.
