Have you seen this lovely error while working in Laravel?
Method Illuminate\View\View::__toString() must not throw an exception
Situation 1: Trying to print out a value in an array.
Answer 1: Try printing out the array. Are you sure it's an array? I've gotten this error when it was an object instead of an array. Try doing a print_r and seeing what you get.
Situation 2: You have this associated array like this:
Array ( [post_id] => 65 [post_text] => Multiple Images! [created_at] => 2014-10-23 09:16:46 [updated_on] => [post_category] => stdClass Object ( [category_label] => Help Wanted [category_code] => help_wanted ) [employee_full_name] => Sam Jones [employee_pic] => /images/employee-image-placeholder.png [employee_email] => email@example.com [post_images] => Array (  => stdClass Object ( [image_path] => 9452photo_2.JPG )  => stdClass Object ( [image_path] => 8031photo_3.JPG ) ) )
When you try to access post_images array directly within a View, it throws an error. No. Matter. What. You. Do.
Answer 2: Check in all the places where you are calling the View. What happened here is that I was trying to access the same view somewhere else in an area where I wasn't giving the post_images array. Took FOREVER to figure out.
I hope this helps someone else. :) I just know the error I kept getting didn't help me anywhere.
