Issue: When trying to search for any data that contains HTML after it will return no results.
Example: Go to the link above and search for Conversion or Click using the top right search input.

Code:

<script id="tablescript" type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function () {
    $('#reports tfoot th').each( function () {
        var title = $('#reports thead th').eq( $(this).index() ).text();
        $(this).html('<input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Search by '+title+'" />');
    });
    $('#reports').DataTable({
      "lengthChange": false,
      dom: 'Bfrtip',
        buttons: [
            'copyHtml5',
            'excelHtml5',
            'csvHtml5',
            'pdfHtml5'
        ],
        "columnDefs": 
        [
          { 
            "type": "html",
            "targets": [0,1,2,3,4,5,6], 
            "searchable": true
          }
        ],
        initComplete: function () {
            // Apply the search
            this.api().columns().every( function () {
                var that = this;
                $('input', this.footer()).on('keyup change clear', function () {
                    if (that.search() !== this.value) {
                        that
                            .search(this.value)
                            .draw();
                    }
                } );
            } );
        }
  });
});
</script>

    Your page isn't loading, I'm getting ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS. As a guide though, you can use columns.render, modifying the filter response, to determine how that cell should be matched.
