WAB Search Widget - Does Not Honor Web Map Filters or HTML tags

I have run into two issues using the Search Widget in Web AppBuilder. Any help remedying these issues is greatly appreciated.


1. Honoring Filters

I have set up a filter in the Web Map being references for the WAB app, but this filter is not being honored in the final Web AppBuilder application. When I enter in search criteria, a list of all of the features containing the search word are listed instead of limiting the list to only show the filtered features. Are filters supposed to carry over into WAB?


2. Recognizing certain HTML tags using the Search bar

I have also noticed that when a feature is selected using the search bar (left image), html tags in the photo credit and image are not displaying correctly. If I click on the same feature in the map itself (right image), everything works perfectly. Is there a reason for this?
