// Change the default sidebar to a custom one (MediaWiki:Sidebar_[NS_NUM] if it exists) on any namespace,
// not just custom namespaces. If MediaWiki:Sidebar_[NS_NUM] doesn't exists, use MediaWiki:Sidebar.

Info

MediaWiki:Sidebar => Default Sidebar
MediaWiki:Sidebar_[NS_NUM] => Custom Sidebar for [NS_NUM]

Note

You can get the namespace number from Special:Prefixindex. Look at the URL in the Location/Address bar of your web browser, it will look like this:

[Your Wiki Site]/index.php?title=Special%3APrefixindex&from=&namespace=[NS_NUM]
