It's not implemented yet; it may make it into 2.1.0.  In the meantime
the redirect message can be disabled with:

    $PageRedirectFmt = '';

Viewing the page is no problem, but you don't want the edit links to
automatically create pages unless you want spiders to be creating pages
for you.  :-)

    $LinkPageCreateFmt = $LinkPageExistsFmt;

That's another one that is "coming soon".

Change the Site.EditForm to include a sidebar that appears on the right.
This can be done with a table or a floating section.

    (:include Site.Cheatsheet:)
