Basic Concepts

loband is a service that simplifies web pages, in order to make them download faster over slow Internet connections.

To use the service, type the URL (web address) of the page you want to visit into the grey bar at the top of the page, and click the "Go" button. For example:


Once you start browsing through loband, this grey bar will be available at the top of each page.

What is a simplified page?

The simplified page viewed through loband will contain the same text information as the original. The formatting of the simplified page will be as similar to the original as possible, with colours and images removed. On certain pages you may find that things have moved around to some degree.

It is possible that you will want to view something that loband filters out. Images contained in the original page are replaced by links containing an 'i' in square brackets, e.g. [i-MainMap] or [i]. In either case, by clicking on the link, the original image can be viewed. It is also possible to view the entire original page using the original link on the grey bar at the top of the page.

What if something's wrong with the page?

We are keen to make as many pages accessible as possible. On a small number of pages, you may find that the simplified page is not as usable as the original version. If this happens, you can let us know about the problem by using the report error link on the top grey bar, which will send us an alert about the page you are trying to view.

If you are unable to use a simplified page, you can use the original link on the top grey bar to view the original page.

Reporting a problem

If you choose to let us know about a problem by clicking on the report error link, you will be given the option to tell us more details about the problem you had - this information can be useful to us in finding and fixing the problem. You will also be given the option to tell us your email address, which will allow us to respond personally to your error report. Although time pressures mean that we cannot guarantee to respond to each error report, we constantly use feedback from our users to make improvements to the loband service.

Aidworld will not use your email address for any purpose other than responding to feedback, and will not disclose your email address to any third party.
