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)

Beginning with PC-BSD® 9.1, Control Panel provides an icon for accessing XSane, a graphical utility for managing scanners.

To use your scanner, make sure the device is plugged into the PC-BSD® system and click the Scanner icon in Control Panel or type xsane from the command line. A pop-up message will indicate that XSane is detecting devices and will prompt you to accept the XSane license if a device is detected. If a device is not detected, search for your device at the list of supported scanners.

NOTE: if the scanner is part of an HP All-in-One device, make sure that HPLIP is first installed in Control Panel -> System Manager -> System Packages -> Hardware-Drivers.

Figure 8.13a shows the XSane interface running on a PC-BSD® system attached to an HP OfficeJet.

The XSane Documentation contains details on how to perform common tasks such as saving an image to a file, photocopying an image, and creating a fax. It also describes all of the icons in the interface and how to use them.

By default, XSane uses the Netscape browser if you click F1 to access the built-in documentation. To change the default browser, either go to Preferences -> Setup -> Display and input the desired browser in the "Helpfile viewer (HTML)" field or change the "browser" setting in the .sane/xsane/xsane.rc file in your home directory.
