Subject: How to begin creating my layout?
I’m new and want a start page with a side bar for all my pages. I searched all YouTube videos and they’re really old only showing how to create a page. But what about a layout?


The sidebar should have namespaces and link to pages below each category like below:

Software reference
..GitHub
..Photoshop

Coding reference
..Python
..React

Cooking
..Sushi
..Pizza

This document is sooo confusing
I don’t know what this means
:foo:sidebar for the namespace foo:*
:bar:sidebar for the namespace bar:*
:foo:bar:sidebar for the namespace :foo:bar:*
:foo:bar:baz:sidebar for the namespace :foo:bar:baz:*

I paste :foo:sidebar to the side bar page and it just shows the literal text “:foo:sidebar”. What am I supposed to do??

Start with making a page with the name "sidebar" and see what happens.

Create a sidebar page as, @pop has said, and then in that page, you have to create a link [[:foo:bar]] if you want to link to :foo:bar.
