A block had been added to the left hand side column to highlight walk alerts on the front page of the site. When there are no outstanding alerts there will be no block there.
Items are added to this block when a 'Story' has been added with 'Walk Alerts' selected in the Interests selection. Items will stay there until 30 days older than the 'Authoring Date' or have had their 'Publishing Options' state of 'Promote to Front Page' set off.
Members who have signed up for access to the site can add their own news items and Walk Alerts. They can also add comments to any existing news items.
