PHP Laravel 4 Basics Blade & Forms Form Builder

My form is not outputting correctly (Laravel 5)

My form is outputting the HTML. I am using laravel 5, I had to update via composer and then change the app.php.

I am now confused as to why blade is not generating my form?

<form method="POST" action="http://laravel.dev:8000/myers" accept-charset="UTF-8"><input name="_token" type="hidden" value="KZuCvZwOs6NQG9JmPfi9eaI1PqQdfF06NHaMDxvV"> <label for="title">This is the form title</label> <input name="title" type="text" id="title"> <input type="submit" value="Submit Button"> </form>

I ended up fixing the code and it outputs as expected.

I formatted my form as seen below:

{!! Form::open( array('route' => 'todos.store') ) !!}

    {!!  Form::label('title','This is the form title')  !!}
    {!!  Form::text('title')  !!}
    {!!  Form::submit('Submit Button') !!}

{!!  Form::close()  !!}

It worked (I have no css button class as of yet so did not include it)

Great job! In Laravel 5, Blade changed it's echo/escaped echo syntax to avoid confusion between {{ }} and {{{ }}}. The exclamation marks are meant to draw your eye to the code, because it can be dangerous to have unescaped code echo'd to the screen.
