php – laravel 5.2 blade template failing to parse-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I have an issue with a laravel 5.2 site I’m working on. I have a master (main) layout that I’m using to set the main elements of the page up, and it’s being used in the welcome page (that extends it) with no problem.

However, in some of the subpages I keep getting an error from the compiled view:

<?php echo $__env->make('layouts.main, array_except(get_defined_vars(), array('__data', '__path')))->render(); ?>

The error is Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '__data' (T_STRING), expecting ',' or ')'

There’s literally nothing in my view except the title and the main content element, where I’m trying to dump a variable. The error is coming from Laravel, not my code (as far as I can tell).

This is the whole view:


@section('title', 'another page!')


Any ideas why this is happening?

How to solve:

Please check the first line:


The closing single quote (') is missing. It should be:



Use this as your first line:


We often forget to put ' on last word. Happens!
