I am hosting a website, ConnorVG TV, which will have an OctoberCMS, Octocasts at ConnorVG TV, section. It is basically a website where I will host screencast tutorials and possibly text tutorials (depending on demand). I am here to ask the community if there are any tutorials you wish to request, if so then please post here or use the 'Contact form' to personally email me a request.

I am excited to hear your input.

Great stuff Connor! I'd personally like a file/image upload tutorial & maybe a simple image/media browser to view uploaded files/images? I've built one in regular PHP but never with the laravel framework.

I've been doing some research on getting this started using laravel, but I'm relatively new to the framework & will probably end up spending hours & hours trying to figure it out. Just the basics would be good to get people started, then people could expand as necessary ?

Sounds like a good idea, cheers for the input daniel81. One issue with generic Laravel stuff is that I would advise people to check out Laracasts first so this one is still on the backburner.

I have two things I would love to see as tutorials.

First I would say, something regarding image manipulation. Say I want to have a blog, and only upload only one image per post, and I want to have that image programatically cropped into different sizes for the different views. For instance, a large version for the post itself, and a small version as a thumbnail in a list.

Second, how to customize and expand on the baked in features of the User plugin. For instance, how to add more fields to the profile, and allowing users to log in and edit those fields. Actually, a tutorial on now to set up a user driven October site itself would be ACE.

Thoughts?

Hi Connor, how about a tutorial on using Authority with OctoberCMS. I think we could definitely improve October and give it a social edge using Authority. Also, on a more basic level, just having a good understanding at how October and Laravel interact would be fantastic! Charles

Gotta agree with Charles. A tutorial on how to use facebook/google to create new users, including how to extent the existing user model. Currently the plugins I am working on is passing users around like objects in method calls and therefor not using any of laravels relation functions. With a social integration this would become very difficult to manage.

@Daniel81 and @TheOneWhoDid, you can find a simple guide to starting with the October CMS Book Up and Running. It will show you how to set up a simple site locally and deploy that to production in layman's terms.

I would really like to see the ins-and-outs of creating a form-widget and see different use-cases. I am trying to make a form-widget myself that takes data from a jsonable field from the table, show the data in a form-partial and be able to edit the data and saving it.

So basically, the form-widget should be able to show the jsonable data as if they were columns in the table and work with them as such. The only option I currently see is to create a partial that creates each of the form elements in php code instead of using the otherwise used .yaml config.
