Check and see if the alternator is putting anything out. If it isn't then test to make sure the alternator is getting the voltage going into it that tells it to run.

check connections, making sure they are tight

There is a fusible link between the alternator and the starter motor. If that link has melted, the battery will not see anything from the alternator.
