New Website Page Added

At the April 5th meeting, it was announced that going forward, there would be a page on the Federation website where councils can post their council events.  You'll see "Council Events" on the right side of the menu bar.

Some basic rules:

Degrees will continue to be posted on the Degrees page.  They will not be added to the Council Events page.

If your council has a color or black and white flyer, please send it to the webmaster as either a PDF file or JPG/JPEG file.

Remember the "Who, What, Where, When, How Much, and Why" of the event - your council may know what you are doing, but the rest of the county may not.

IMPORTANT:  Remember that while the Federation website may be for the councils in Bergen County, the Internet is worldwide - meaning that whatever you ask to be posted must conform to Supreme and New Jersey State Council standards and practices.

New Website Feature: Subscribe to Receive Federation Updates

At the January meeting, I gave an update on the website.  Part of my update was that I was looking at ways to automatically notify the Brothers of new postings to the Federation website.  This is the first part of what I presented that night.

You may have noticed that off to the right of where these posts appear is a section where you can register to receive updates to the Federation website via e-mail.  Updates are usually posts that appear in this section of the website or events that are posted to the calendar.  By subscribing to the updates, you receive e-mails as soon as items are posted to the website.

Simply enter your name and e-mail address and click Subscribe.  You will receive an e-mail from "Bergen Federation Knights of Columbus" with the subject "Bergen Federation Knights of Columbus - Please confirm your subscription".  When you open the e-mail there will be a sentence stating that the website received an e-mail from your e-mail address and asks you to confirm it by "clicking here".  When you do so, you will receive a message thanking you and that you have been successfully subscribed as well as a welcome e-mail.  In case you don't see the e-mail, check your spam filter as well as your spam folder in your e-mail system.

As new posts are added to the website, subscribers will receive an e-mail with the words "New Post Published" in the subject line along with the post title.  Once you open the e-mail, there will be a link that you can click on which will open the post in your browser.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me webmaster@bergenfederationkofc.org
