in particular, is the problem... :)
the declaration "view/all_news_links" says something like "in the
class associated with this template search for the method
in the file "new.py" (plone/app/portlets/portlets ||
eggs/plone.app.portlets-xxxx-py2.4.egg/plone/app/plortlets/portlets ||
you have:

    def all_news_link(self):
        portal_state = getMultiAdapter((self.context, self.request),
        portal_url = portal_state.portal_url()
        portal = portal_state.portal()

        if 'news' in portal.objectIds():
            return '%s/news' % portal_url
            return None

where returns None if news is not a direct child of portal...

you can customize the portlet[1] or move the folder news again to the
root of the site...
that should be enough to make appear the link again...

maybe i'm missing a more simple solution =)...
