To improve discoverability, you could include a
default link saying
*MediaWiki:Sidebar|Edit this sidebar
(we've done something similar on Wikia which worked well)
excellent idea. Any objections?
Er, how about that 99.9999% of visitors would have this link they can't
do anything about?
One would assume that the wiki administrator(s) would remove the link
once they are aware of how to customize the sidebar (and have customized
it). On the other hand, given the wide MediaWiki user base, this might
not always occur and some sites often leave the sidebar as its default.
The suggestion of putting a notice about it in the default main page
makes sense, however.
