[wp-hackers] including the CPTs in the search result

I use the same function but with another filter, and it works fine for me
with all my proyects, some of them with heavy traffic (a spanish newspaper):

function searchAll( $query ) {if ( $query->is_search ) {$query->set(
'post_type', array( 'post', 'page', 'feed', 'custom_post_type1',
'custom_post_type2'));}return $query;}
add_filter( 'the_search_query', 'searchAll' );

If you want to exclude the pages of the search results, just delete 'page'
from the function ;)
