@Betty3 and @cbg - you're both right and the system should have been modified to better act the way it does with other alerts. While I now have a navigational issue I'm not thrilled about, perhaps I'll figure out a way to suppress the alert and revert it the way it was - I'll explain. Clicking on the red flag does nothing. I see the issue now. It's great that it shows a flag for the new articles but the only way to access it would be to actually click the "new articles" link in the navigational bar to get there. That is not optimal. As of right now, having things exist the way they are for the moment is just fine. Thanks so much for pointing this out.
