Hi Laura,

the pulldown shown the site structure, i.e. a tree structure. Since the 
wiki lies outside the tree structure it does not appear as a link but it 
is possible to set an inline javascript redirection on the page to get 
redirected to the wiki.

as for instance:

<script language="JavaScript">
  function redirect_to_wiki() {
      window.location = 'http://www.python.org/moin/EuroPython2005';
  setTimeout("redirect_to_wiki()", 2000);

I have set the timeout to 2seconds (2000) to test it - but I can be 
reduced to one second or half a second. Press 'Esc' to stop the 

PS: now that the main site structure which is there, you can start 
publishing documents into it
Documents, like events, news, etc appear on the front page as opposed to 
the site structure folders which are static.
