I am trying to count how many unread notifications i have in laravel that does not have a name value of the user that is logged in.
so far i have managed to do the following where i get the number of all the unread notifications:
but i want to only count the ones that have a name value that is not equal to the name of the user that is logged in
i have come up with something like this but its not working and i am not sure how to do not equal to rather than equal to:
$numberofnotifications = auth()->user()->unreadNotifications::where('name', Auth::user()->name)->count();
