By Hardik Savani July 21, 2022 Category : Laravel

Hi Dev,

In this example, i will show you laravel custom email verification. it's simple example of laravel manually verify email. i explained simply step by step laravel manually send verification email. I’m going to show you about how to verify email in laravel. Let's see bellow example custom email verification laravel.

Laravel already provides an email verification feature by default. Still, if you want to do your own logic with a manual email verification process then I will help you with step-by-step email verification in laravel.

few days ago i posted one post with Custom Auth Login and Register with Laravel and Custom Reset Password with Laravel so you must have to follow that as well because i started this feature with that code. you can also use this example with laravel 6, laravel 7, laravel 8 and laravel 9 version.

Let's follow the below step for custom email verification.

you can see below preview of pages:

Step 1: Install Laravel

first of all, we need to get a fresh Laravel version application using bellow command, So open your terminal OR command prompt and run the below command:

composer create-project laravel/laravel example-app

Step 2: Create "users_verify" table

basically, we will create "users_verify" table and add new column "is_email_verified" in users table.

let's create new migration using below command:

php artisan make:migration create_users_verify_table

Migration

<?php

use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;

use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

class UsersVerify extends Migration

{

/**

* Run the migrations.

*

* @return void

*/

public function up()

{

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

$table->integer('user_id');

$table->string('token');

$table->timestamps();

});

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

$table->boolean('is_email_verified')->default(0);

});

}

/**

* Reverse the migrations.

*

* @return void

*/

public function down()

{

}

}

Step 3: Create Model and Update Model

In this step, we need to add "is_email_verified" field on fillable array in User model and create new model call UserVerify as like bellow:

app/Models/User.php

<?php

namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Contracts\Auth\MustVerifyEmail;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;

use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;

use Illuminate\Notifications\Notifiable;

class User extends Authenticatable

{

use HasFactory, Notifiable;

/**

* The attributes that are mass assignable.

*

* @var array

*/

protected $fillable = [

'name',

'email',

'password',

'is_email_verified'

];

/**

* The attributes that should be hidden for arrays.

*

* @var array

*/

protected $hidden = [

'password',

'remember_token',

];

/**

* The attributes that should be cast to native types.

*

* @var array

*/

protected $casts = [

'email_verified_at' => 'datetime',

];

}

app/Models/UserVerify.php

<?php

namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class UserVerify extends Model

{

use HasFactory;

public $table = "users_verify";

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

protected $fillable = [

'user_id',

'token',

];

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function user()

{

return $this->belongsTo(User::class);

}

}

Step 4: Create Route

In this is step we need to create custom route for email verification. so open your routes/web.php file and add following route.

routes/web.php

<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

use App\Http\Controllers\Auth\AuthController;

/*

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

| Web Routes

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

|

| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These

| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which

| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!

|

*/

Route::get('login', [AuthController::class, 'index'])->name('login');

Route::post('post-login', [AuthController::class, 'postLogin'])->name('login.post');

Route::get('registration', [AuthController::class, 'registration'])->name('register');

Route::post('post-registration', [AuthController::class, 'postRegistration'])->name('register.post');

Route::get('logout', [AuthController::class, 'logout'])->name('logout');

/* New Added Routes */

Route::get('dashboard', [AuthController::class, 'dashboard'])->middleware(['auth', 'is_verify_email']);

Route::get('account/verify/{token}', [AuthController::class, 'verifyAccount'])->name('user.verify');

Step 5: Create Controller

in this step, we need to create AuthController, we updated code on postRegistration() and verifyAccount() method, let's copy as like bellow:

app/Http/Controllers/Auth/AuthController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers\Auth;

use App\Http\Controllers\Controller;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Auth;

use Session;

use App\Models\User;

use App\Models\UserVerify;

use Hash;

use Illuminate\Support\Str;

use Mail;

class AuthController extends Controller

{

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function index()

{

return view('auth.login');

}

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function registration()

{

return view('auth.registration');

}

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function postLogin(Request $request)

{

$request->validate([

'email' => 'required',

'password' => 'required',

]);

$credentials = $request->only('email', 'password');

if (Auth::attempt($credentials)) {

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

->withSuccess('You have Successfully loggedin');

}

return redirect("login")->withSuccess('Oppes! You have entered invalid credentials');

}

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function postRegistration(Request $request)

{

$request->validate([

'name' => 'required',

'email' => 'required|email|unique:users',

'password' => 'required|min:6',

]);

$data = $request->all();

$createUser = $this->create($data);

$token = Str::random(64);

UserVerify::create([

'user_id' => $createUser->id,

'token' => $token

]);

Mail::send('email.emailVerificationEmail', ['token' => $token], function($message) use($request){

$message->to($request->email);

$message->subject('Email Verification Mail');

});

return redirect("dashboard")->withSuccess('Great! You have Successfully loggedin');

}

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function dashboard()

{

if(Auth::check()){

return view('dashboard');

}

return redirect("login")->withSuccess('Opps! You do not have access');

}

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function create(array $data)

{

return User::create([

'name' => $data['name'],

'email' => $data['email'],

'password' => Hash::make($data['password'])

]);

}

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function logout() {

Session::flush();

Auth::logout();

return Redirect('login');

}

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function verifyAccount($token)

{

$verifyUser = UserVerify::where('token', $token)->first();

$message = 'Sorry your email cannot be identified.';

if(!is_null($verifyUser) ){

$user = $verifyUser->user;

if(!$user->is_email_verified) {

$verifyUser->user->is_email_verified = 1;

$verifyUser->user->save();

$message = "Your e-mail is verified. You can now login.";

} else {

$message = "Your e-mail is already verified. You can now login.";

}

}

return redirect()->route('login')->with('message', $message);

}

}

Step 6: Create Blade File

here, we need to create blade files for email only. so let's create one by one file:

resources/views/emails/emailVerificationEmail.blade.php

<h1>Email Verification Mail</h1>

Please verify your email with bellow link:

<a href="{{ route('user.verify', $token) }}">Verify Email</a>

Step 7: Create Middleware

here, we need to create middleware for checking user email is verified or not. so let's create as like bellow:

php artisan make:middleware IsVerifyEmail

app/Http/Middleware/IsVerifyEmail.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Middleware;

use Closure;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Auth;

class IsVerifyEmail

{

/**

* Handle an incoming request.

*

* @param \Illuminate\Http\Request $request

* @param \Closure $next

* @return mixed

*/

public function handle(Request $request, Closure $next)

{

if (!Auth::user()->is_email_verified) {

auth()->logout();

return redirect()->route('login')

->with('message', 'You need to confirm your account. We have sent you an activation code, please check your email.');

}

return $next($request);

}

}

app/Http/Kernel.php

protected $routeMiddleware = [

....

'is_verify_email' => \App\Http\Middleware\IsVerifyEmail::class,

];

Step 8: Email Configuration

in this step, we will add email configuration on env file, because we will send email to reset password link from controller:

.env

MAIL_DRIVER=smtp

MAIL_HOST=smtp-mail.outlook.com

MAIL_PORT=587

MAIL_USERNAME=example@hotmail.com

MAIL_PASSWORD=123456789

MAIL_ENCRYPTION=tls

MAIL_FROM_ADDRESS=example@hotmail.com

Run Laravel App:

All the required steps have been done, now you have to type the given below command and hit enter to run the Laravel app:

php artisan serve

Now, Go to your web browser, type the given URL and view the app output:

http://localhost:8000/register

i hope it can help you...
