Sorry for the delay in answering, I have been swamped getting  
everything done so I could attend SANS Bootcamp here in Orlando  
(anyone else for a BoF?)..... The message "Added 0 alerts to the  
alert cache" just means that since the last time you refreshed the  
page, no new alerts have happened.  What happens with the alert cache  
is that as the page is loaded, BASE will cache the alerts into the  
various DB tables.

So basically your system is working correctly, unless Snort is not  
seeing things it should?

Hope that helps,
