    You need to check out the MediaWiki wiki... http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:LocalSettings.php is a good start for editing permissions.

    The sidebar is a special page... http://www.example.com/wiki/index.php/MediaWiki:Sidebar will show you a list that you can edit (if you have the correct permissions).
