The sidebar was removed after 2.1 in favor of the 'filteredlist' dialog.
Now to view buffers you press Control+B and you can type a few letters of
the buffer you want to open it.

If you have your snippet in your ~/.textadept/snippets.lua, it isn't
loaded automatically anymore. Instead, add = 'snippet'

to your ~/.textadept/init.lua.

If you are getting an error, please post it as well as the snippet. There
was a bugfix a since 2.1 that may have broken something else.
