I designed the Lens skin, so I hope I can help. :-)

To display the sidebar, Lens will use the first of these pages that PmWiki
can find:
1. a page named SideBar in the current group
2. a page named SideBar in $SiteGroup (normally Site)
3. the page Site.SideBar

So, if your sidebar page is Main.SideBar, then it won't display except when
you're in the Main group. This is probably the trouble if you're using an
older copy of PmWiki (before version 2 beta 44), or upgraded from one.

The "lens" skin also takes away all the edit buttons or links. Once

That's very strange.

Do you have the view modes recipe, or not? If you do, what is $View set to?
Are you setting $View before or after the line

Is it just the edit links in the titleblock, or in the footer too?

Could I take a look at your site, and see if something is wrong with some of
the special wikipages that Lens needs?
