Sorry for the inconvenience.  Known Navigation header breakage, its being "rebuilt" but forward nav should be ok now.
There may be other unforeseen breakage primarily in the handbook portion of the wiki.
The Table Of Contents section of each "PC-BSD® Users Handbook" page may be the best workaround.

(Sorry for the inconvenience)

In PC-BSD®, software is divided into PBIs, meta-packages, and package sets:

  • PBIs are single applications, such as web browsers or multimedia utilities. PBIs are installed and managed using AppCafe®. Update Manager will automatically notify you when newer versions of installed PBIs become available.
  • Meta-packages are installable software collections that can be considered the same as system components. Meta-packages are selected during installation and include supported and unsupported desktops, development utilities, hardware drivers, and miscellaneous applications such as MythTV or XBMC. After installation, your initial meta-package choices can be modified using Package Manager. Warden® also supports meta-packages, allowing you to install system components into a jail.
  • Packages include the default software that is installed with the PC-BSD® operating system. Users running a STABLE version of PC-BSD® can upgrade this software once per month using Update Manager.

This section demonstrates the following PC-BSD® tools for managing software on your PC-BSD® system:

  • AppCafe® to install PBI software using a graphical application.
  • PBI Manager to manage PBI software using command line utilities.
  • Using pkgng to manage the software that is installed with the operating system.
  • Update Manager to install newer versions of PBIs or package sets and to apply security patches using a graphical application.

It also describes how to Create Your Own PBI Repository of custom PBIs.
