Hi, can you advice how to change an essay into a page and vice versa?
Also is there a way to place a topic list on a side of the page on Koken (the way some Wordpress blogs have it)? I'm using Chastain theme.

I could not find a built-in way to change between essays and pages. But, you should be able to just open the essay and copy the content, then create a page and paste the content.
You will have to actually customize a theme to add a "Navigation Group." See more in the official Koken help documentation.
