Cannot apply generated templates to site: "Unexpected server behavior"

Applicable to:

  • Web Presence Builder 12.0 for Linux
  • Plesk 11.5 for Linux
  • Plesk 12.0 for Windows
  • Web Presence Builder 11.5 for Linux


Cannot apply generated templates to a site in Parallels Presence Builder 11.5.6. The following error is shown in GUI:

Unexpected server behavior. For details, see the product's log files.
Please contact the server administrator.

The following records appear in the log:

2013-09-14T00:58:25-04:00 [EMERG] /sitebuilder/JsonApi/ SB_Widget_Exception: Widget type 'hidden' is not supported.
file: /usr/local/sb/include/SB/WidgetBroker.php
line: 23


The problem is caused by hidden widget 'search' configured in Parallels Presence Builder 11.5.6:

~# cat /usr/local/sb/config | grep hidden_widgets
hidden_widgets = search


  1. delete ' search ' from 'hidden_widgets' ;
  2. add ' search ' into section 'restricted_widgets' instead. This option is missing by default, but you may safely create it in the configuration file.

Developers plan to fix the issue is actual code of Parallels Presence Builder since version 11.5.7. Bugs are 142937, 142938.
