PHP Question

Laravel Session Missing after Page Refresh

I have a little problem about sessions in Laravel.

I have made the authentication function which like this:

public function postSignin(){
$attempt = Auth::attempt(array('username' => Input::get('username'), 'password' => Input::get('password')));
if ($attempt) {
return Redirect::to('index')->with('message', 'Anda telah login!' . $attempt)
->with('usersess', Input::get('username'));
} else if(!$attempt){
return Redirect::to('auth')
->with('message', 'Kombinasi email/password salah ' . $attempt)
->withInput();
}
}


let see i have send the 'usersess' var into session which i consume in my header blade like this:
{{ Session::get('usersess') }}
and place it in the header.

BUT the problem is when i refresh the PAGE, the session is missing! Is there any clue, how to get it back without the session is missing?

i have learn about php and using
<?php session_start() ?>
is the basic function, but how it works in laravel?

thank you!

UPDATE my session.php configuration



return array(

Answer

->with flashes data to the session for that page load only. If you want to keep an item in the session use Session::put('key', 'value'). So for your example:

if($attempt) {
    Session::put('usersess', Input::get('username'));
    return Redirect::to('index')->with('message', 'Anda telah login!' . $attempt);
}

EDIT

You can use Session::get('key') to retrieve a value or Session::pull('key') which returns the value and forgets the value. You can also use Session::forget('key') to remove an item. Session::flush() clears everything from the session.
