Brand new to Confluence... Some sites have an 'overview' link automatically added. Some sites don't

When I add sites some of them seem to have an overview link with a hamburger type of icon and other sites don't, not sure why.  Some are very basic and have pages and space tools.  What differentiates this?  Also, is there a way to add the overview option after the fact?  Thanks.  

Photos included to show differences.

Hi, Terry,

It appears that the Space Administrator has removed those links from the sidebar.

If you log in as the Space Administrator for that Operations space, look at the bottom right-hand corner of the sidebar when you put your cursor over it. A small pencil icon should appear.

When you click it, you'll see your Overview and Blog options again with a + sign next to them. If you click the + sign you can add those options back to the sidebar.

Can you give that a try and let me know how it goes? 

Kind Regards,

Yes!!  Thank you very much.  The site is brand new and i'm the one who created it so I'd be the site admin I guess.  I never turned those off though which is confusing.  But as long as I know how to turn back on all is great!!  Thanks again!


Glad I could help!

Take care and have a pleasant rest of your week. :) 

Kind Regards,
