Validator Error

Hi, I keep getting this error when I use laravel validator

ErrorException (E_UNKNOWN)

preg_replace(): Parameter mismatch, pattern is a string while replacement is an array Open: /home/vagrant/sites/zihai/vendor/laravel/framework/src/Illuminate/Support/helpers.php

    * @param string $subject
    * @return string
    function str_replace_array($search, array $replace, $subject)
    foreach ($replace as $value)
    $subject = preg_replace('/'.$search.'/', $value, $subject, 1);

my code simply like that

$rules = array(
            'title' => array('required')
        $name = Input::all();   

        $validate = Validator::make($name,$rules);

Something is passed incorrectly to the Validator::make method. Can you show us your form code?
