What's New? [august 2017]

Find out what we changed or new features we've added to the Igorotage ecosystem.


This changelog covers what we've changed on Igorotage this month. These changes include Igorotage's legalities, design, and other services.

Unblocking Facebook

That's right, we're unblocking Facebook's in-app browser from accessing Igorotage. After some experiments this month, we thought it would be better if we'd just unblock Facebook's in-app browser.

Igorotage's website global ranking dropped by millions in just weeks! Most importantly, people on Facebook complain about seeing the browser blocked! warning. was written there why we blocked your browser!

We tried to balance things so we came up with a better solution. Unblock Facebook and remind our dear visitors.

You can read here on why we blocked Facebook's in-app browser.


We upgraded the Igorotage design! You may not notice it but there are lots of changes. Still, Igorotage is alpha. Meaning, things will change and might break. Until then consider it incomplete.

Browser support

  • Dropped IE8, IE9, and iOS 6 support. Igorotage is now only IE10+ and iOS 7+.
  • Added official support for Android v5.0 Lollipop's Browser and WebView. Earlier versions of the Android Browser and WebView remain only unofficially supported.

An example of a WebView is the Facebook's in-app browser.

We're on Patreon

Yeah, we joined Patreon.

What is Patreon?

According to them. Patreon is the best way for creators to earn ongoing revenue directly from their fans.

For creators, Patreon is a way to get paid for creating the things you’re already creating (webcomics, videos, songs, whatevs). Fans pay a few bucks per month OR per post you release, and then you get paid every month, or every time you release something new.

For patrons, Patreon is a way to join your favorite creator's community and pay them for making the stuff you love. Instead of literally throwing money at your screen (trust us, that doesn’t work), you can now pay a few bucks per month or per post that a creator makes.

If you're a creator, we're inviting you to join!

If you think this community is worth keeping, please help us maintain this site by becoming a patron. Will you pledge a small monthly donation to help us achieve our goals? Every little bit helps, and your kindness will be rewarded with some pretty awesome perks!

We've added advertising to Igorotage's ecosystem. Igorotage is not just committed in promoting the Igorot identity. We'd also love to help local businesses along the way.

We thought partnering with Igorotage is the perfect opportunity for businesses within the Cordillera to get their business to the right people and vice versa.

We've developed a low-risk high-reward advertising module. If you're a business consider partnering with us. You set your own budget, so your costs will depend on what you are trying to accomplish.


We've updated our terms of service and privacy policy. Please have time to read them.

Wrapping up

We still have some works to do, but we're closing the gap and getting more stable with each release.
