[Update, 11/1/07]: Clarified this post.
Now everyone can use our improved Sidebar. This Sidebar lets you have three tabs:
- QuickStart: A list of simple actions to help people get accustomed to using PBwiki.
- Recent Activity: A list of recent changes on the wiki.
- SideBar: The regular Sidebar page, which is fully-editable. Most people use this to create a simple navigation tab for the wiki.
Here’s how it looks.
How to get the improved PBwiki Sidebar
Log into your wiki and click Settings —> Skins—> click “activate new sidebar.” (NOTE: This option will only appear for one month, so make your change now!)
How do I delete some of the tabs?
To delete any of the sidebar tabs, click “All Pages” and find the page(s) you want to delete (QuickStart, Recent Activities and SideBar). Click the red “+” next to the appropriate page and click Delete. Once you do this, that tab on your Sidebar will disappear. (NOTE: Once a page is gone, all content on it will disappear, so be careful.)
I don’t like the “improved” Sidebar and I want to back to the old one.
Unfortunately, there’s no going back, so please be sure you want to switch before you do it. A quick way to play around with the new Sidebar is to create a demo wiki from http://www.pbworks.com.
Help! I don’t have the option to turn on the new Sidebar in Settings >> Skin
We noticed a lot of questions below and dug into this. Chances are, you already have the new Sidebar. If this isn’t the case, please leave a comment with your wiki name so we can see what’s going on.
I want to force the Sidebar to appear instead of QuickStart
No problem. Check this out great solution by one of PBwiki community members.
