I’m new to Laravel and thought it be cool to purchase the Codehappy ebook by Dayle Rees.
I just finished the blog tutorial and thought a bit on how he retrieved the posts from the Post model. Coming from a .net (ASP.NET MVC) background I think it will be important to order the posts while eager loading the author.
He eager loads the model like this.
$posts = Post::with('author')->get();
My question is where can you use the “order_by” clause?
the order_by itself works when I use:
$posts = Post::order_by('id', 'desc')->get();
I manage to solve it by:
$posts = Post::with('author')->order_by('id', 'desc')->get();
