The sidebar used in this page to the left provides an example of what your sidebar would look like. Construction of a sidebar:

  <!-- Main Sidebar Container -->
  <aside class="main-sidebar sidebar-dark-primary elevation-4">
    <!-- Brand Logo -->
    <a href="index3.html" class="brand-link">
      <img src="dist/img/AdminLTELogo.png" alt="AdminLTE Logo" class="brand-image img-circle elevation-3"
           style="opacity: .8">
      <span class="brand-text font-weight-light">AdminLTE 3</span>
    </a>

    <!-- Sidebar -->
    <div class="sidebar">
      <!-- Sidebar user panel (optional) -->
      <div class="user-panel mt-3 pb-3 mb-3 d-flex">
        <div class="image">
          <img src="dist/img/user2-160x160.jpg" class="img-circle elevation-2" alt="User Image">
        </div>
        <div class="info">
          <a href="#" class="d-block">Alexander Pierce</a>
        </div>
      </div>

      <!-- Sidebar Menu -->
      <nav class="mt-2">
        <ul class="nav nav-pills nav-sidebar flex-column" data-widget="treeview" role="menu">
          <!-- Add icons to the links using the .nav-icon class
               with font-awesome or any other icon font library -->
          <li class="nav-item has-treeview menu-open">
            <a href="#" class="nav-link active">
              <i class="nav-icon fas fa-tachometer-alt"></i>

                Starter Pages
                <i class="right fas fa-angle-left"></i>
              </p>
            </a>
            <ul class="nav nav-treeview">
              <li class="nav-item">
                <a href="#" class="nav-link active">
                  <i class="far fa-circle nav-icon"></i>
                  <p>Active Page</p>
                </a>
              </li>
              <li class="nav-item">
                <a href="#" class="nav-link">
                  <i class="far fa-circle nav-icon"></i>
                  <p>Inactive Page</p>
                </a>
              </li>
            </ul>
          </li>
          <li class="nav-item">
            <a href="#" class="nav-link">
              <i class="nav-icon fas fa-th"></i>
              <p>
                Simple Link
                <span class="right badge badge-danger">New</span>
              </p>
            </a>
          </li>
        </ul>
      </nav>
      <!-- /.sidebar-menu -->
    </div>
    <!-- /.sidebar -->
  </aside>

Alternate Logo

You can use two logo images instead of logo with text, you only need to change the markup to this:

<a href="#" class="brand-link logo-switch">
  <img src="dist/img/logo-xs.png" alt="AdminLTE Docs Logo Small" class="brand-image-xl logo-xs">
  <img src="dist/img/logo-xl.png" alt="AdminLTE Docs Logo Large" class="brand-image-xs logo-xl" style="left: 12px">
</a>

Example from v3.0 docs.

Based on the example above, you can replace .brand-image-xl on .logo-xs with .brand-image-xs or vice versa on .logo-xl for changed logo sizes.

Search Form in Sidebar

You can add this code above user-panel or nav-sidebar:

<form class="form-inline">
  <div class="input-group">
    <input class="form-control form-control-sidebar" type="search" placeholder="Search" aria-label="Search">
    <div class="input-group-append">
      <button class="btn btn-sidebar" type="submit">
        <i class="fas fa-search"></i>
      </button>
    </div>
  </div>
</form>
