I have a custom search template on my site and under some circumstances it works perfectly;
However i have another search form on another part of the site which search for custom post types. In this instance, search.php does not load and it reverts to index.php.
Now I know there are potentially a couple of variables here, but I'm preeeety sure search.php only loads when custom post type is NOT requested.
If you think it would help then I could upload the contents of my search.php, but I feel that's not necessary because it isn't even being called. My feeling is this is a template hierarchy issue, but I don't know how to solve it.
Any help greatly appreciated, I've spent ages on this already!
