Register a user or login with default user and password secret from your database and start testing (make sure to run the migrations and seeders for these credentials to be available).

Besides the dashboard, the auth pages, the billing and table pages, there is also has an edit profile page. All the necessary files are installed out of the box and all the needed routes are added to routes/web.php. Keep in mind that all of the features can be viewed once you login using the credentials provided or by registering your own user.




The documentation for the Material Dashboard Laravel is hosted at our website.


If you are not logged in you can only access this page or the Sign Up page. The default url takes you to the login page where you use the default credentials with the password secret. Logging in is possible only with already existing credentials. For this to work you should have run the migrations.

The App/Http/Controllers/Logincontroller.php handles the logging in of an existing user.

    public function login(Request $request)
        $credentials = $request->validate([
            'email' => ['required', 'email'],
            'password' => ['required'],

        if (Auth::attempt(['email' => $request->email, 'password' => $request->password])) {

            return redirect()->intended('dashboard');

        return back()->withErrors([
            'email' => 'The provided credentials do not match our records.',


You can register as a user by filling in the name, email and password for your account. You can do this by accessing the sign up page from the "Sign Up" button in the top navbar or by clicking the "Sign Up" button from the bottom of the log in form.. Another simple way is adding /register in the url.

The App/Http/Controllers/RegisterController.php handles the registration of a new user.

    public function store()
        $attributes = request()->validate([
            'username' => 'required|max:255|min:2',
            'email' => 'required|email|max:255|unique:users,email',
            'password' => 'required|min:5|max:255',
            'terms' => 'required'
        $user = User::create($attributes);

        return redirect('/dashboard');

Forgot Password

If a user forgets the account's password it is possible to reset the password. For this the user should click on the "here" under the login form.

The App/Http/Controllers/ResetPasswordController.php takes care of sending an email to the user where he can reset the password afterwards.

    public function send(Request $request)
        $email = $request->validate([
            'email' => ['required']
        $user = User::where('email', $email)->first();

        if ($user) {
            $this->notify(new ForgotPassword($user->id));
            return back()->with('succes', 'An email was send to your email address');

Reset Password

The user who forgot the password gets an email on the account's email address. The user can access the reset password page by clicking the button found in the email. The link for resetting the password is available for 12 hours. The user must add the email, the password and confirm the password for his password to be updated.

The App/Http/Controllers/ChangePasswordController.php helps the user reset the password.

    public function update(Request $request)
        $attributes = $request->validate([
            'email' => ['required'],
            'password' => ['required', 'min:5'],
            'confirm-password' => ['same:password']

        $existingUser = User::where('email', $attributes['email'])->first();
        if ($existingUser) {
                'password' => $attributes['password']
            return redirect('login');
        } else {
            return back()->with('error', 'Your email does not match the email who requested the password change');

User Profile

The profile can be accessed by a logged in user by clicking "Profile" from the sidebar or adding /profile in the url. The user can add information like phone number, location, description or change the name and email.

The App/Http/Controllers/UserProfileController.php handles the user's profile information.

            'username' => $request->get('username'),
            'firstname' => $request->get('firstname'),
            'lastname' => $request->get('lastname'),
            'email' => config('app.is_demo') ? auth()->user()->email : $request->get('email') ,
            'address' => $request->get('address'),
            'city' => $request->get('city'),
            'country' => $request->get('country'),
            'postal' => $request->get('postal'),
            'about' => $request->get('about')


You can access the dashboard either by using the "Dashboard" link in the left sidebar or by adding /dashboard in the url after logging in.
