Except that that page is not linkled from the front page, that I can see.
Could the Current_events page be set to show its 5 first items on the 
frontpage ?  (I'd use the views module if this was Drupal).
I added [[Category:events]] to both pages to tie them together for a start.

Ok, I used [[Category:events]] . It's irritating the way the wiki changes the 
capitalization all the time, reminds me of windows...

I tried that, by moving the current page, but the category links don't get 
updated, and I moved the main page first by accident (and moved it back), so 
in the end I left it like that.

If you search for NEO you get no results, so I thought it didn't work at all.
Now it seems it only searches the titles of pages, not the content, even after 
selecting all the checkboxes in 'preferences'.
Maybe that's by design, but then 'Search Title' would be a better description.
