After upgrade Confluence to last version, "sidebar" is not displayed, and the sidebar controller icon that should appear next to the search button is not displayed.






The issue is caused by the plugin mentioned above is interfering with Confluence.


  1. Update the plugin to the newest version or
  2. Uninstall the plugin

Should that does not fix the issue, try Enable Plugin Safe Mode and see if the issue persists. This is because there might be other third party plugin that are causing interference to Confluence's core plugins, and thus causing this issue
