Sorry for the inconvenience.  Known Navigation header breakage, its being "rebuilt."
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.

If you translate the handbook to another language, or convert it to other formats, please let us know so that we can help you spread the word and include it on the FTP server.

The Handbook grows into a useful resource when users (meaning you!) contribute to it. You do not have to write large sections of the Handbook in order to be a contributor. You also do not need to have a lot of time on your hands. You simply have to create a login account in order to assist with any of the following tasks:

  • proofread existing pages and fix any typos, grammos, or unclearly worded sections.
  • add to sections containing missing, outdated, or incomplete content.
  • update any screenshots that are out of date.
  • every page has a Discussion tab. You can use this if you would like to suggest further information that should appear in that section of the Handbook.
  • create a new section for content that is not yet covered in the Handbook. If you are not sure where to do this, ask on a semi-related Discussion tab.

We are emailed whenever edits are made and will contact you for clarification if an edit is unclear. You can also be notified when specified pages are edited--simply click the "my preferences" or "my watchlist" links whenever you are logged into the wiki.

PC‑BSD® Users Handbook (Published Release 10.0)

Beginning in February, 2013, PC-BSD® switched to a rolling release model for those users who wish to test changes that will be incorporated into the next release of PC-BSD®. The wiki is used to document these changes and assist with translation.

If the information and screenshots on the wiki do not match what you are seeing on your PC-BSD® system, it means it has changed since your version was released. You should instead refer to the Users Handbook that came with your version of PC-BSD®.
