Welsh Premier League website Can't Post or Reply Privately

What is the problem with this site? It is showing all the results so far as 0-0. Is it a software bug, or is the WPL simply too bone idle to post them? Ditto the league table.

It's migrating to this site: https://www.cymrufootball.wales

Been a slow process and still a way to go by the looks of it.

Thanks. So what was wrong with maintaining the site they already had? It wasn't broke, so why fix it? Retrograde step IMO.

And many aspects, e.g. the Nathaniel Cup, not appearing anywhere at all.

I assume it's all a consequence of the rebranding and expansion of the league.

The new site, in its latest form, has been up for about a week. I don't know when it's expected to be fully functional.

There have always been better, more up-to-date, independent websites covering the Welsh Premier, than the official site. I suspect that will remain the case and that even when the FAW get their act together and get this new one working properly sites like y clwb pel-droed and Twitter feeds like this is welsh football will still be a better first place to go for news and views, whereas for fixtures and results this site and allwalessport will do the job just as well.

Very poor site. Where can one find attendances. Were on old WP and HGA sites.

Wouldn't the close season have been the time to do this?

They started it in the close season and soon released a one page version of what they've developed up to now, which said the site would be ready 'in good time' for the new season. They just haven't finished it yet!

Is the old adage: if it ain't broke don't fix it. The old site was perfectly fit for purpose (one or two minor glitches but easily fixed with minimal effort). The new one's not a patch on it.

When will they ever learn?

And they're not the only ones. There are clubs keep doing this too - keep changing their site time and again so all the old records don't get transferred and anyone researching has to spend an age trying to find the back ones. Barry Town United are a classic example. But they're by no means alone. Why?
