I have tried following the instructions from your Configuring a Sidebar Documentation. It says you need to have space administration permissions to see the Configure Sidebar options. I have administration rights i.e. I am a Confluence Administrator but I cannot them. Initially I saw this when I created the space and it had the default theme but when I switched to documentation theme and reversed it, it does not show up. Under Global permissions only the system-administrator has system administration rights. I cannot change this. Is there a way I can add myself to this group as it seems like it's Atlassian who has this right. This user is the only person who belongs to confluence-administrators and system-administrators group.
Help would be much appreciated.
This problem is probably because the Space Theme is the 'Documentation Theme' and it doesn't have a sidebar. To change the theme follow: Applying a Theme to a Space
You have to be space administrator (not system-administrator) to do so.
Then the sidebar will appear when the Theme is changed to Global Look and Feel.
If it doesn't, you'll have to change the Default Confluence Look and Feel to the new Default Theme too. http://<your-instance>/wiki/admin/choosetheme.action
I am using confluence 6.13.5 and i have a question regarding the sidebar. When we are in Homepage we can able to see the page tree but when we switch to Questions/Blogs or in Space tools section, the page tree disappears. Can we keep the page tree visible throughout the space irrespective of which section we navigate.

Hi @zoma plex , the navigation bar is contextual to the content you are viewing so in Questions, Blogs and configuration pages the content shown will be related to what you are seeing. The Page Tree is related to the hierarchy of the page so it may not provide benefits on showing it for every blog that don't have the same hierarchy.
It is not possible to change the sidebar behaviour to keep the page tree showing all the time.
Would you like to explain more on your use case and why it is important to see the page tree all the time? there may be other ways of solving your problem without changing the sidebar behaviour.
I suggest looking for different answers or raising a support request if this is crucial to your daily usage as there may have been others looking for the same behaviour that I don't know of :)
