Yes, the Site.SideBar page has the same permissions as the rest of the
wiki: if the wiki is open for editing (no passwords set), then the
sidebar is also editable. If there is a site-wide edit password, then
the sidebar can be edited with the same password.

The password is most likely filled by your browser or password manager,
PmWiki does not fill the password form. So my guess is the WAMP
installation had some other software installed. You can test if it is
the case by launching your browser in the "incognito" or "private" mode:
the password will not be pre-filled. Again, if you don't have a password
manager or some browser extension that fills the passwords for you.

To speed this, at the end of the "page actions" (View Edit History...
under the header) click on the link "Logout". That link only appears if
you have entered any passwords.
Alternatively, append to any page address "?action=logout", for example
