composer require wnx/laravel-disable-updated-at

Using Laravel >=5.5.5?: If you've installed Laravel Version >= 5.5.5 you don't need this package. The behaviour has been updated in the 5.5.5 Release. You can disable the updated_at column by updating the UPDATED_AT constant like this:

class Page extends Model
    const UPDATED_AT = null;


After installing the package you can use the trait in your models like this:


namespace App;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;
use Wnx\DisableUpdatedAt\DisableUpdatedAt;

class Page extends Model
    use DisableUpdatedAt;
