Laravel 8: Trying to get property ‘name’ of non-object while returning results

I’m working with Laravel 8 to develop my project which is an Online Forum.

And here is my route to / uri:

Route::get('/', function () {
    $threads = AppModelsThread::paginate(15);
    return view('welcome', compact('threads'));

And at welcome blade:


And at thread-list, I added this:

@forelse($threads as $thread)
Posted by <a href="{{route('user_profile',$thread->user->name)}}">{{$thread->user->name}}</a> {{$thread->created_at->diffForHumans()}}

But somehow I get this error:

ErrorException Trying to get property ‘name’ of non-object (View: thread-list.blade.php)

So what is going wrong here ? How can I fix this issue ?

I would really appreciate any idea or suggestion from you guys…

Thanks in advance.

Method 1

This is because $thread->user is null which mean the user is being deleted.
you can use one of the following ways:

  1. sort out the thread which user not exists in Controller:

    Route::get(‘/’, function () {
    $threads = AppModelsThread::has(‘user’)->paginate(15);
    return view(‘welcome’, compact(‘threads’));

  2. remove a tag if user not exists:

    @forelse($threads as $thread)
