I'd like to add a default where clause to all dataobjects so I don't have to write things like this everytime: DataObject::get()->where('Archived = 0')
How would you go about it? I was thinking of creating a BaseDataObject that extends DataObject and overrides the get method.
Anyone done anything similar before?

Thanks for any help/advice

Just ended up creating a wrapping function that's available in one of my base files as I needed paginated results as well.

public function MyList($request, $filters=[], $sort=[], $where="Deleted IS NULL", $limit=20) {
	$list = DataObject::get()->where($where)->filter($filters)->sort($sort);
        $results = PaginatedList::create(

        return $results;
