In forums the best data is probably last

I wanted to know how to count in a blade.php loop, each iteration getting an index basically. So I researched online here: https://laracasts.com/discuss/channels/laravel/count-in-a-blade-foreach-loop-is-there-a-better-way?page=1

The first solution was really ugly and didn't work. So I went back and saw someone mention WAY DOWN THE PAGE (i.e. the commend was posted years after the 1st one) that blade has since added $loop->iteration which was exactly what I needed.

Lesson:

When looking up how to do something in a forum, start at the most recent (usually the bottom) entry first since the language/framework often introduces new features that make everything easier.

Ideally sort by recency.
