As you say, extra traffic put the site over the monthly limit. I now have unlimited bandwidth so the site will stay up.

One issue I do have is that webpages are not showing correctly. Some spaces as well as apostrophes (eg in 'A' ) are showing as a ? in a small black diamond. I create the pages on Word but cannot fathom how to correct it. Any pointers please!

Basically it's an issue with the character encoding of the page - the encoding doesn't contain those curly quotes, so it's not able to display those characters. You've three options:

  1. Replace them with non-curly/straight quotes (might be better just using a normal text editor like Notepad++ or see if you can change the settings in Word to not use smart quotes)
  2. Replace them with an HTML entity in the HTML code, e.g. ‘A’  https://www.w3.org/wiki/Common_HTML_entities_used_for_typography
  3. Change the character encoding of the page by replacing <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" > in the head to <meta charset="UTF-8"/>

BTW, I'm curious how much bandwidth was used in a month? (on what is a fairly basic site without that many images)

Cheers, mate.

I tried out your suggestion on the Glasgow & WOS League page using notepad to alter the quotes and it appears to have worked. I'll amend the other files accordingly over time but as I want to re-populate the site as quickly as possible these will be as and when. Funnily this only happened after I upgraded my hosting package, co-incidence?

I was on the basic 5Gb but this appears to be eaten up due to me uploading a lot of files to it. I'm now on an unlimited package so the site will now stay up.

Hey @sfha

I noticed that Dalbeattie Star's first team withdrew from the EoSFL just prior to the beginning of the 2009-10 season. There's even a mention that their SoS reserve was being disbanded with the first team taking their place in the SoSFL for the forthcoming season in that year's SNLR.

In both the 2009-10 & 2010-11 SNLR they are credited as Dalbeattie Star A on their league tables. On your website for both tables they are credited as Dalbeattie Star reserves, the same for the South League Cup in 2010-11.

I'll amend these later today.

I'm still working on the page of the North Caledonian FA and its predecessors.

From what I can discern the North of Scotland Junior FA/League were renamed the 2nd XI FA/League in 1935 prompting the formation of a new North of Scotland Junior League which also included some Morayshire clubs and existed until the war. An earlier Ross-shire Junior League also existed during the early 1930s. The updated page will also feature an extensive list of the various league and cup winners.

As an aside, I, and according to several posts in the forums others, have always been intrigued by the NCL's status.

It was formed as the NOS Junior League in 1896 and contained a mixture of Junior clubs and 'A' sides of senior clubs, similar to the setups in the south of Scotlland.

It was retitled as 2ndXI League in 1935... was this actually a response to the Scottish Junior FA's ruling on banning junior XIs associated with senior clubs? If the A sides had left there may have not been enough clubs to make the Association and League viable. A new NOS Junior League that formed at the time was questioned by the press who themselves deemed there weren't enough local Junior clubs to warrant 2 leagues.
