You will most likely want to edit the sidebar of your site - at the very least, you will likely want to add links to your forms. To edit the sidebar, click on "Helpful links" at the top, then click on "Edit sidebar". Each row in the list you see is a link. Rows are generally divided into two parts, a URL and a description, separated by a "|"; this can be difficult to understand because the default rows use aliases for both URLs and descriptions. But to add a link to a form, you should add a row onto the list that looks something like:

** Form:Book|Add a book

You may want to add an entire section similar to this one--from the example:

** Form:Book|Add a book
** Form:Author|Add an Author
** Special:AddData|Add Data
** Special:AddPage|Add Page with form
** Special:CreateCategory|Create category
** Special:CreateClass|Create a class
** Special:CreateForm|Create a form
** Special:CreateProperty|Create property
** Special:CreateTemplate|Create a Template
** Special:EditData|Edit Data
** Special:RunQuery|Run Query
