    Hey guys,

    I attempted to edit the Search Widget as explained prior bellow a couple days ago. In so doing I followed through with the instructions and then I ran into some complications. I entered the appropriate 

    Host type: Telerik.Sitefinity.Services.Search.Web.UI.Public.SearchBox

    Layout template path: relative path to the customized template in your project.

     and in so doing I deleted the newly created info. I did and the solution paused for a bit and then it stopped. I got a few glitches. The system then restarted and so it's been restarting for more than 12hrs now. I eventually stopped the process closed the VS Solution, Cleaned and then built the solution. I then restarted the solution to which I get this message. I can't log in to the system at all. I get the error, Value Cannot Be Null. Parameter Name: key How can this be rectified? I got two errors now so I've attached them both.

    I'm sorry I'm reposting this but I need to fix this urgently.

    Hello guys,

    Usually, when you map a template in Sitefinity, you easily remove the Viewmap (delete it) and all changes, that have been made won't apply anymore. @Jesse, it seems that there's damage to your database. I would advice you to open a support ticket and send us your database and config files in it.

    All the best,
    Jen Peleva
