Laravel 5 creating custom registration and login from default Authentication

After 2 years experience in cakePhp , recently i started learning laravel framework. i already created the database for my new project and create a default authentication system with laravel 5 using the

php artisan make:auth
but i cant modify it according to my database design
i have a

  • users table(id,username,password,remember_token)
  • user_profiles table (id,first_name,last_name etc)
  • group table(id,group_name)
  • group_users(group_id,users_id)
  • users_user_profiles (user_id,user_profile_id)

so using the above table i want to implement a group based user management system.

if i use the default authentication system ,

  1. how can i store login and registration details into two tables with a single registration from? and how can i insert the id’s into pivot table users_user_profiles table automatically ?
  2. How to create a view for the registration which contain both the login details and registration details, how can i separate them and how to access the request data separately for storing into two separate tables?

if anybody can provide a detailed description on this, it will help all laravel 5 beginners, i think its a common problem for all newbies..
please help me

Method 1

First define good your models, so you can use eloquent, for example making connection with user_profiles:

    public function profiles()
       return $this->belongsToMany('UserProfile');

(It will be possible only when you get UserProfile model)
Then you extend your register form by adding first_name, last_name, etc. In auth controller after creating user
    $user = User::create([
        'name' => $data['name'],
        'email' => $data['email'],
        'password' => bcrypt($data['password']),

Add code that create user profile:
$userProfile = UserProfile::create([
        'first_name' => $data['name'],
        'last_name' => $data['email']

Then add it to user by attach command (if you have many of them you can use sync) :
