php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Backpack\Settings\SettingsServiceProvider" php artisan migrate

[optional] add a menu item for it to the sidebar_content file

php artisan backpack:add-sidebar-content "


[optional] insert some example dummy data to the database

php artisan db:seed --class="Backpack\Settings\database\seeds\SettingsTableSeeder"


End user

Add it to the menu or access it by its route: application/admin/setting


Use it like you would any config value in a virtual settings.php file. Except the values are stored in the database and fetched on boot, instead of being stored in a file.

// or 

Add new settings

Settings are stored in the database in the "settings" table. Its columns are: - id (ex: 1) - key (ex: contactemail) - name (ex: Contact form email address) - description (ex: The email address that all emails go to.) - value (ex: [email protected]) - field (Backpack CRUD field configuration in JSON format. - active (1 or 0) - createdat - updated_at

There is no interface available to add new settings. They are added by the developer directly in the database, since the Backpack CRUD field configuration is a bit complicated. See the field types and their configuration code on

Overwriting Functionality

If you need to modify how this works in a project: - create a

file; the package will see that, and load your routes file, instead of the one in the package; - create controllers/models that extend the ones in the package, and use those in your new routes file; - modify anything you'd like in the new controllers/models;
