This refers to the Confluence Cloud instance only.
The sidebar pages are not sorted alphabetically.
I know that I can sort the pages via the Space Settings, however, this does not persist and requires constant manual sorting via this screen.
I saw this page, but it is not an ideal solution.
What are the exact steps to permanently sort the pages in the sidebar after new pages are created?
I edited this question and has now been lost in aether.
This is no longer required.
