Hello Todd, I do not want to stop using Canvas/Laravel as the main engine for my website. However, I am a beginner and I have some questions, I hope you can answer me. What should I do to be able to extend the functionality of the Controllers and Models?, I mean, without having to make modifications directly at Vendor. And, is there any problem if I migrate the current project in Laravel 5.3 to Laravel 5.5? Thanks in advance.

Hello, I got the same error as a user before me, my webserver crashes if I try to upload a file. ![thisimage.PNG](https://files.readme.io/c196789-thisimage.PNG) This is a screenshot but I figured out you cant close because the webserver crashed, in my case Hiawatha... This is when we add a post and try to direct upload a picture to it, than the webserver crashes whenever I try to upload a file. When I upload via FTP and pick an Image I just uploaded everything works fine, even picking in add post. I would love to hear from you if you know how to fix that.

while trying to integrate into another project I cannot get the admin to display... it only uses the illuminate auth and nothing i do seems to point it to the canvas auth. I can confirm that the blog is there because i can see the initial post, but not get to the admin. ... its a fresh set up and there are no other routes that could cause a conflict /admin redirects me to /login but it either uses illuminate auth, or nothing if i don't install the default auth any ideas

Hi Todd, Sorry for the multiple questions but hopefully these serve to help others too. I have created my own canvas theme and uploaded it to packagist, updated my composer.json file to pull in the package and that all went ok in Terminal. The theme then appears in the drop-down of themes in the advanced settings section of the backend of canvas alongside the original Paper and Paper-dark themes. However, when I switch to it nothing seems to be updating. I then tried switching to paper-dark and also nothing seems to be changing. Is everything ok with theme switching at the moment? / Do you have any troubleshooting suggestions?

Hi Todd, I have installed Canvas in homestead and played around with it's features as well as setting up my own core site in the installation (leaving canvas files untouched in the vendor folders...) I have tried to deploy via forge, my core site is up and running but the canvas site is presenting the canvas installation screen (where it tells you the command to run). What should be the equivalent step to running php artisan canvas:install but using forge? I am guessing it is a forge recipe or similar? (please bare with me this is my first time venturing outside of homestead dev environment)

Hello, it might be a stupid question (even worst to me because I used a lot Laravel before) but I just installed Canvas for a local development and I want to modify the initial Paper theme but I didn't find all resources related to it. Resources' folder is empty. I really don't understand how it's working actually to change it. Best regards.

Hey Todd, I have been installing Canvas into an existing 5.4 Laravel project and i'm getting the error: ReflectionException in Container.php line 719: Class checkForMaintenanceMode does not exist after following all the steps. Do you have any ideas? Looks like an incorrect namespace or mistyped class somewhere but i can't track it down. Luke

I was so attracted to your "Simple..." homepage messages and then the Install page hit me with a mass of coding requirements? This is classic marketing dissonance -- I expected one thing and was served up something else. (I wonder what the bounce rate on your service is after people hit the GET STARTED button? You might want to look into that.) I am a blogger. Not a coder. Decide whom your selling to, please.

I wrote a blog post recently in which I wanted to include a couple of embeds from Giphy. They give you the code as an iFrame for the video - you can see an example here: https://giphy.com/gifs/disney-big-hero-6-hiro-hamada-writers-block-XqQ6qRCtNQnfO/embed When I pasted the embed code into my blog post, it turned the whole thing into a wall of unformatted text on publish. The preview / side-by-side in the admin worked OK, but it wouldn't format at all correctly in the front end. There were no paragraph breaks or headers - essentially, the raw Markdown was displayed and ONLY the Giphy embeds were working properly. Anything I can do about this? I settled for pasting the GIFs for now, but this isn't entirely mobile friendly!
