Usage

To start testing the Pro theme, register as a user or log in using one of the default user:

Make sure to run the migrations and seeders for the above credentials to be available.

In addition to the features included in the free preset, the Pro theme also has a role management example with an updated user management, as well as tag management, category management and item management examples. All the necessary files (controllers, requests, views) are installed out of the box and all the needed routes are added to routes/web.php. Keep in mind that all the features can be viewed once you log in using the credentials provided above or by registering your own user.

Each role has a different privilege level and can perform a certain number of actions according to this level.

A member type user can log in, update his profile and view a list of added items.
A creator type user can log in, update his profile and perform actions on categories, tags and items.
A admin type user can log in, update his profile and perform actions on categories, tags, items, roles and users

Dashboard

You can access the dashboard either by using the "Dashboards/Dashboard" link in the left sidebar or by adding /home in the URL.
