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.

(Sorry for the inconvenience)

Beginning in February, 2013, PC-BSD® switched from the traditional FreeBSD ports system to pkgng. All of the PC-BSD® utilities that deal with installing or updating software now use the pkgng system. This allows users to safely install non-PBI software from the command line without that software being deleted by a system upgrade.

PC-BSD® provides a custom command, pc-pkg which is a small wrapper to pkg in order to improve its functionality. When pc-pkg is used with the install or upgrade flags, it will automatically use the integrated aria2 downloader utility, which can significantly reduce download speeds over a slow link.
