Adding settings

Setting Module

Adding settings for you module is very easy. All you need to do is add a settings.php configuration file in YourModule/config/settings.php, and return an array of settings you want.

You will also have to load that setting file in your service provider, like so:

$this->publishConfig('moduleName', 'permissions');

The first argument is the module name and the second the file name without extension.

Registering translatable settings

The settings are registered in the following manner:

return [ 'posts-per-page' => [ 'description' => trans('blog::settings.posts-per-page'), 'view' => 'text', 'translatable' => true, 'default' => 15, ], 'this-is-a-checkbox' => [ 'description' => 'This is a checkbox', 'view' => 'checkbox', 'translatable' => true, ], 'this-is-a-textarea' => [ 'description' => 'This is a textarea', 'view' => 'textarea', 'translatable' => true, ], ];

The array key being the setting name, holding an array of information.

The information array needs the following:

  • a description key: this will be the label / placeholder,
  • a view key: which points to the view holding the field,
  • a translatable key: defines if the setting is translatable (set in multiple languages)
  • a default key (optional): defines a default value for your setting if none is present and none is set in the third argument of Setting::get().

Registering Plain settings

Not every setting has to be translatable, plain settings are settings that aren't translated.

 'plain-non-translated-setting' => [
    'description' => 'A plain setting',
    'view' => 'text',
    'default' => 'your default value',
