Step 1: Install Laravel

Begin by creating a new Laravel project:

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel laravel-status

Step 2: Install Laravel UI and Auth

Install Laravel UI with Bootstrap auth scaffolding:

composer require laravel/ui
php artisan ui bootstrap --auth

Step 3: Modify the Users Table Migration

Open the migration for the users table and add status column:

 Schema::create('users', function (Blueprint $table) {

Step 4: Run Migrations

Execute the migrations to apply changes to the database:

php artisan migrate

Step 5: Create the CheckUserStatus Middleware

Generate a middleware named CheckUserStatus:

php artisan make:middleware CheckUserStatus

Add the logic provided earlier for the CheckUserStatus middleware in the generated file (app/Http/Middleware/CheckUserStatus.php).


namespace App\Http\Middleware;

use Closure;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Auth;

class CheckUserStatus
    public function handle($request, Closure $next)
        $user = Auth::user();

        if ($user && !$user->status) {
            Auth::logout(); // Log out the user
            return redirect()->route('login')->with('account_on_hold', 'Your account is on hold. Please contact the administrator.');

        return $next($request);

Step 6: Implement Error Message Blade Code

Create a blade view file (e.g., error.blade.php) in the resources/views directory. Insert the error message display code

@if (session('account_on_hold'))
    <div class="alert alert-danger alert-dismissible fade show" role="alert">
        {{ session('account_on_hold') }}
        <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="alert" aria-label="Close">
            <span aria-hidden="true">&times;</span>

Step 7: Configure Middleware in the Kernel

In App\Http\Kernel.php, register the CheckUserStatus middleware in the $routeMiddleware array:

'checkUserStatus' => \App\Http\Middleware\CheckUserStatus::class,

Step 8: Integrate Middleware in Routes

Apply the check_user_status middleware to routes or route groups where user status verification is necessary:

Route::group(['middleware' => ['auth', 'verified','checkUserStatus'], 'prefix' => 'admin'], function () {
    Route::resource('roles', RoleController::class);
    Route::resource('settings', SettingController::class);

Step 9: Conclusion

You've now set up a Laravel application, integrated Laravel UI with authentication, added a 'status' column to the users table via migration, implemented middleware for user status verification, and configured error message display for account status issues. This setup allows you to manage user access based on their status efficiently.
