I just took over a Drupal project from a previous webmaster. I know PHP and web development, but I am new to Drupal, and am running into a problem I don't understand.
We are using the Search module to search the site. When you search, the results come up just fine, and show the content type near the bottom of the search result.
For example, say we had an "Author" type. You search for JRR Tolkien, and multiple results come up - his Author page among them. At the bottom of the search results it says "Authors" saying which content type it is.
However, when you click on the link, it takes to you /node/id, rather than /authors/id. This is the part I don't understand. The search result is linking to a /node/ page rather than a /author/ page, and the formatting on the two is different. If I go directly to /authors/10 (assuming 10 is Tolkien's id), then it shows the formatting that is set in the Author's view section. The formatting of the /node/ page is different, however, and I can't figure out where that would be set, or why the search result is going to that URL rather than /authors/.
Please let me know what I'm missing here :)
