find(‘first’)… gotcha

Just a simple tip…

Here’s a typical find() example:

$this->Post->find('first', array('condition' => array('id' => 5)));

Why does it return me the post with ID = 1, rather than ID = 5?

Of course, a careful reader spotted the spelling issue in the key:
‘condition’ instead of ‘conditions’.

Moral of the story is that find(‘first’) can be a little tricky and misleading and if you are getting an unexpected result be sure to double-check your implementation.

find(‘first’, ‘blah’);
