Your wiki's sidebar is able to be changed. Go to the MediaWiki:Sidebar page of your wiki.
A new section of the sidebar can be added with one asterisk followed by the section name:
* Section name
Under each section, you can add links with two asterisks followed by the URL and link name. The URL and name of the link are separated by a pipe:
** Main Page|Wiki Homepage
** Another Page|Another Page
** https://www.mywikis.com/|External Link to MyWikis
Importing a sidebar from Wikispaces
Now that you are at MyWikis, welcome! Once your Wikispaces content has been imported, we know you will want to use your original sidebar from Wikispaces. To do, follow the below steps:
Go to "Spaces" and copy the content. An example of something in Spaces looks like this:
'''Home'''<br /> [[Home|Homepage]] '''Conferences'''<br /> 3rd Conference (link coming soon)<br /> [[Conference 2|2nd Conference]]<br /> [http://example.com/external/link 1st Conference]<br /> '''Related Links'''<br /> [http://github.com/example GitHub]<br /> [http://google.com Google]
Then go to MediaWiki:Sidebar. It will look like this by default:
* navigation ** mainpage|mainpage-description ** recentchanges-url|recentchanges ** randompage-url|randompage ** helppage|help * SEARCH * TOOLBOX * LANGUAGES
The final contents should look like this:
* navigation ** mainpage|mainpage-description ** recentchanges-url|recentchanges ** randompage-url|randompage ** helppage|help * Conferences ** Conference 3|3rd Conference (link coming soon) ** Conference 2|2nd Conference ** http://example.com/external/link|1st Conference * Related links ** http://github.com/example|GitHub ** http://google.com|Google * SEARCH * TOOLBOX * LANGUAGES
Modify the links as shown and put this new format on MediaWiki:Sidebar. Note that while Wikispaces allowed sidebar points without links, MediaWiki requires them. The sidebar should instantly update with your new content!
