<div class="container">
                <div class="row">
                trash part
                <table class="table">
                                <th scope="col">SL No</th>
                                <th scope="col">Category Name</th>
                                <th scope="col">User</th>

                                <th scope="col">Action</th>
                            @foreach($traChat as $category)
                                <th scope="row">{{ $category->id}}</th>
                                <td>{{ $category->category_name}}</td>
                                <td>{{ $category->user->name }}</td>
                                <td>{{ $category->created_at}}</td>
                                    <a href="{{ route('category.edit',$category->id)}}" class="btn btn-info">Edit</a>
                                    <a href="{{ route('category_delete',$category->id)}}" class="btn btn-danger">Delete</a>
