The current version of that skin wouldn't use Group.SideBar, because in 
the template it only tests for Site.SideBar:


If you want the skin to load the current group if it exists, you need to 
change this line to:

   <!--wiki:$Group.SideBar $SiteGroup.SideBar-->

If you want to use the same feature as the SideBar (having a Site.NavBar 
included if there is no Group.NavBar) you can use the same markup in the 

   <!--wiki:$Group.NavBar $SiteGroup.NavBar-->

In Site.NavBar you may place a link to create the Group.NavBar this way:

   [[{*$Group}.NavBar?action=edit|edit local nav bar]]

Here {*$Group} will always mean the currently browsed group, while 
{$Group} without the star will mean the Site group (where Site.NavBar 

If you want to automatically create the pages, this is more complex, and 
probably the skin is not its place. See the recipe NewGroupBox which can 
create a number of pages.
