Before you redirect to another page, simply use the Laraflash facade to set your message. You can call the main flash method as follows:
Laraflash::flash("This is a flash message.", "success");
The first parameter is your message, the second is the priority level.
There are also four helper methods available for easier setting of priority levels:
Laraflash::success("This is a success flash message.");
Laraflash::info("This is an info flash message.");
Laraflash::warning("This is a warning flash message.");
Laraflash::danger("This is a danger flash message.");
Displaying the message
To display the message, simply include the bundled view (built for Bootstrap) in your view:
Alternatively, you can access the data in the session directly (stored in laraflash.message and laraflash.level) and roll your own view.
