Funky parameter activity

I'm experiencing something that I've no idea how to understand it. I have the following methods ->


public function action($action, $table, $where = [], $rule = "") {
        if(count($where) === 3) {
            $operators = array('=', '<', '>', '<=', '<=');

            $field = $where[0];
            $operator = $where[1];
            $value = $where[2];

            if(in_array($operator, $operators)) {
                if($rule == "") {
                    $sql = "{$action} FROM {$table} WHERE {$field} {$operator} ?";
                } else {
                    $sql = "{$action} FROM {$table} WHERE {$field} {$operator} ? {$rule}";

                if(!$this->query($sql, array($value))->error()) {
                    return $this;
        return false;

    // public function get($table, $where = [], $column = "*", $rule = "") {
    //     return $this->action("SELECT {$column}", $table, $where, $rule);
    // } 

    public function get($table, $where = [], $rule = "") {
        return $this->action("SELECT *", $table, $where, $rule);

They're called like this ->

public function recent() {
            $rule = "ORDER BY RAND()";
            $field = "type";
            $type = "recent";
            $query = $this->_db->get(self::$_table, array($field, "=", $type), $rule);

The code like it is here works. Where the weirdness comes in is if I use the commented out DB->get() method.

When I switch it and use the get() method that is commented out in the above code I get a fatal error because it's parsing the query string as this ->


ORDER BY RAND() FROM posts WHERE type = 'breaking''

The absolute only difference is adding in that $column parameter or not and when it's there this effed up query string is the result.

Can one of you fine phreaks break it down for me, I've been staring at my code for an hour and can't figure it out. Thanks
