How to create a static and non-static method on Model?

Posted 4 weeks ago by MartinZeltin

I would like to create a new method on my model where I could call it in 2 ways

class UsersController extends Controller
    public function index()
        // Calling statically
        return User::searchByName(request('name'));

        // Calling non-statically
        return User::active()->searchByName(request('name'));

But when I create it like this it only works statically

class User extends Model
    public static function searchByName($name)
        return self::where('name', 'like', "$name%")
