The DataTable().$("selector") only searches the main row, how are we supposed to search through the child()ren?

    Two options:

    [code]
    var table = $('#myTable').DataTable();

    $( 'selector', table.rows().nodes() );

    // or

    table.rows().nodes().to$().find( 'selector' )
    [/code]

    Both are 1.10 syntax (since your post referred to that). There will be other ways to do it with `map` / `each` etc as well, but these two are probably the lead code.
