I don't know laravel, but I think I would need to take a look at the method save() in the question class to see what it's doing with those values. Although, since you are in a loop, saving one item should lead to saving another. You might also want to var_dump($values); to see what you have in there.

I don't know if I'm even close to the answer, I don't know Laravel as I mentioned and I haven't even used a MVC framework before, so keep that in mind when reading my posts here.


I already uninstalled the laravel on my Development stack, because I am moving on to the Fuel PHP. However, I am worried about the for loop on your script. Will it be possible for you to use foreach loop which is more fitting to your situation? I do understand if you are coming from JAVA, C, and other languages.

In some cases, for loop will give you an error of ' undefined index ' on the last count position on the count function. To investigate it for yourself, please run this.. ( I don't have the chance to test it, but it should point out the points I am trying to convey).


    $array = array('a','b','c','d','e','f','g');
        for($y=0; $y <= count($array) ;$y++){
         echo $array[$y].'['.$y.']<br/>';

While this one is appropriate and more acceptable in PHP


   $array = array('a','b','c','d','e','f','g');
       $y = 0;
       foreach($array as $x){
         echo $x.'['.$y.'] <br/>';

To capture the array from the loop above, you will need to reassign the array something like this..

$thisArray[] = $x;
}//end of foreach loop

return $thisArray; // or do whatever you need to do with it.
