Sorry for the inconvenience.  Chance of typos in templates, the navigation header should be functional for most versions of the handbook.
Potential remains for unforeseen breakage primarily in the handbook portion of the wiki.
Notice will be up until above verified and no other troubles found from recent modifications.
