Error when trying to open a webpage

First control that the domain-name - link is right, next many browsers can´t handle LONG links, which there often are to Videostation-albums and - or with capital letters

We are using a combination of numbers, characters, capital & small letters in many of our links to files - pages e.g. https://aboutphilippines.org/files/Hiyas-descriptions-of-dances.pdf



So USE a computer - browser who understand THAT and have no problems to show all kind of files e.g. pdf - links.


It can also be because you miss a reader e.g. pdf or PowerPointViewer , so look HERE


Take care and make - get the right link

If you make link to one of our pages in e.g. Facebook, Twitter etc.


In all OUR link to our pages/files there will NEVER be anything after file-extension e.g. pdf, doc, jpg etc. but after the FIRST .html in few links you will see e.g a # like here: https://aboutphilippines.org/archive/luzviminda.html#Cebu_Province_-_Special.

In the same way many link in the pdf files don´t work, because they refer to link in the ref. of the pdf file.


If you have used a link with the directory /Cebu/ e.g. https://aboutphilippines.org/Cebu/Dances.htm so it´s WRONG, because that directory /Cebu/ has been closed.

The RIGHT is e.g.: https://aboutphilippines.org/folklore-music-songs-dances.html


If you think that´s a missing link or an error, please send a Error Report.

Amateur contra Professional

If there´s wrong spelling and grammar, so please inform me, so I can correct!


You have to remember, that everything is easy, when you can and know how to do, maybe it´s very simple for you


a science for other


in many situations other can - know something, they think are simple, but you think it´s a science....


All you find here is our home-made web-sites, that are just an old amateur´s work, and I don´t know much about it, but would so much like to learn e.g. making much better web-sites ..... in spite of my age!


Do you find anything, which maybe is wrong in what I have written, wrong spelling etc. - and also in the way I have made the web-sites (I´m not super to do that), so I will be more than glad for getting help from you to correct the wrong thing and I´m still hoping, that the pages can be a help for some of you.... but


just give the remarks: "That´s wrong - That´s not right - That´s not working"

and if the economy can, we are ready to pay for your HELP.

God Bless you & Many regards
