I need a block on the homepage that everyone who logs in can see. I tried Journal and HTML but what I enter is not available to others. Any suggestions about what I could use would be appreciated.

Have you considered the "News" block?

Thank you for your reply.

In Control Panel, I see a News block in the list of blocks. According to a previous post, there is a link for an option to add a News Item. It would make sense if I could find a place to edit the block but I can't seem to locate that link.

Each tree has its own home page. This is visible to everyone.

Each user has its own home page. This is only visible to the user.

The News and Journal blocks are the same thing. One is for the tree home-page, the other for the user home-page.

This different names reflect the different ways these blocks are used.

I'm using WT 2.0, not 2.1, my experience may not be the same.

When I am logged on with my account (which has administrator access) the blocks on the homepage have editing icons visible. For the "Statistics" block, it is a small crossed tool icon in the upper left corner. For the "News" and "Favorites" blocks, there are links at the bottom of the block: "Edit | Delete" this news item, "Add a news article", "Remove" this favorite, "Add a favorite".
