With Laravel is really easy to have your master template files organized. Lets say you want all your template files under one folder called '/layouts' and this folder contains your master template file, lets call it 'default.blade.php', then you create a page for your homepage called 'home.blade.php' (This file can be under the root of the view folder or it can be organized into its own subfolder) all you have to have to do is tell Laravel where the file is located and what is called. To do this you specify the folder under which your template is located, followed by the '.' delimiter (Pretty much '/') followed by the name of your file. In this case, from home.blade.php we would extend 'layouts/default.blade.php' by writting the following code:
// app/views/home.blade.php @extends('layouts.default')
Hope this helps. If this doesn't answers your question let me know!
Writing from a mobile, so can't give you full written examples, but surely someone can write it if it's not too clear.
Wanted to expand on Gustav's reply.
I tend to add
protected $layout = 'master.template'; to my Base controller.
And then load the views in the controller as
$this->layout->content = View::make('user.index'); instead of the standard used return.
This way you don't need to extend every single layout. Just:
@section('content') Hello World! @stop
And it should work.
$this->layout in any of the controllers if it needs another master template next to the main (frontend - backend).
