The Page Tree is missing from the Left navigation, how would I restore it?

Hi, I am using the Documentation Theme, in the customisation Page Tree is enabled. My wiki used to show it.
Now I still see the left section and the page tree control seems to load for about one second. During that time I see "Loading...". then it dissapears and the whole area is blank except for the search box at the top.
I have confluence ondemand. I have tried changing themes and then changing back. still not working. Appreciate any help restoring this functionality. Thanks.

Thanks for your help here. In the end the problem was that I had created a new wiki home page. That page did not have any child documents. It seams that the left nav is built from the home page rather than the actual space content. The reason I created a new home page rather than edit the exiting one was to remove the previous version which I didn't want public.

Just a punt, but have you tried clicking the little icon thing at top right? Looks like two rectangles, one grey, one white.

Hi Jamie. Yes I know about that icon. It will hide and show the left navigation area. The area is visible and shows the Search Box at the top. Hiding and Showing the left nav area works but the page tree still won't display.

This same thing happened to me. For us the solution was to Go into the Confluence Admin section->Look under plugins for the Documentation theme plugin-> Enable all modules for the documentation theme. For our implementation, the 'Velocity Helper' had become disabled when we installed some other plugin.
