An Updated Message About the Florida Federation Website

The Florida Federation website has been "up and running" on a
new platform since mid-March, 2023; has been brought up to date; and
the website is now (06/03/2023) running on a "secure" https:// server !!

Recently, Bruce Morgan who designed and maintained the website for more than 22 years,
was no longer able to provide support. Content in the website for the
Florida Federation, the Florida Associations, and our Florida Clubs became
outdated and needed to be refreshed. Furthermore a new webbuilder program
had to be found to support the website.

Thank you Bruce for your many years of service !!

Keith Olds volunteered to head a project to identify a new webbuilder software package,
select a hosting platform, redesign the website (where necessary), and then rebuild and move
the website content to the new platform.

Clifford Reiss volunteered to take over support for the website and to work with the
Federation, the Associations, the Clubs and our Callers and Cuers to maintain the website
and bring the content up to date while the redesign and rebuilding is taking place.

The Florida Federation website has been moved to and is being hosted on the secure
DANCERgram platform. This platform is supported by both the SCCA/West Coast Square and
Round Dance Association and the Florida Federation.

The Florida Federation URL "" has been
redirected to bring you to this interim website. The content in this interim website
has been retrieved from the original Florida Federation website, modified as necessary, and
has been brought up to date.

Send updates for your Federation, Association, Club and other information, Federation
and Association Event Flyers, and Association newsletters to the
webmaster Clifford Reiss.

Note 1) due to the move to the new web hosting server and because the original HTML code was
generated 20+ years ago some elements of the HTML code are outdated and no longer function properly.
Pages may display random "" characters when this "old" HTML
code is encountered. Corrections are being made -- but slowly!

Note 2) if you find links between pages that do not work or other content
that is incorrect please bring it to my attention for correction! Thank you. Cliff.

A message about web URL addresses and Facebook pages

A number of clubs have or had a web URL address .. an address such as
"" or ".net" or ".org". In the past the Federation webmaster was handling
the setup and renewal of some of these web addresses in a GoDaddy account.

Some of these web URL addresses may have expired. If by chance no one has
"claimed" and taken over the URL address it would still be available to be reopened. Some other
web URL addresses may be coming up for renewal but unless they are identified, the expiration
date determined, and the owner of the account renews it they will also expire.

If your club or organization has or had a web URL address and needs assistance
maintaining and/or reviving such address I can help. If necessary I would become
the temporary owner of the URL. A web URL costs approximately $22/year to be registered on GoDaddy.

A number of clubs also have Facebook pages. If a club has both a web page and a Facebook page
the sites should reference each other. If the club page is maintained on this Federation website and
there is no link to the Facebook page I will add a link as the Facebook pages are identified.

If your club needs assistance with any of these items contact me:
DANCERgram webmaster Clifford Reiss: eMail:
or call (813) 390-1984
