    hey all,

    (please forgive my "jargon" haven't done any marketing in a few months, and
    forgot some of my terminology)


    if I have text and then a link example >click here< href http://website.com/A>

    (ok I know it's inaccurate code, but you get the picture!)

    when someone places his cursor over the words "click here", in the status bar of
    his pc he sees where the link will take him, in this case "website.com"

    is there anyway to disguise that at no cost ? (it's referring to an adultdate site,
    I don't want him to know where he's headed until after he clicks the link)

    I guess I could use some redirect like a "tiny url" or something else, but it's always a hassle finding
    one that doesn't disable you once they find out it's linking to anything of an adult nature

    any help appreciated !

    hali ~! :)

    just link to a file on your own domain that does an immediate meta redirect

    thanks taco frog

    but I don't have the luxury of a file manager as the particular free website
    builder I'm using is limited to a general toolbar for, fonts, underlining and those
    types of simple changes, but has decent visual effects which is why I like it...
    I guess the result is your average subdomain....

    any other suggestion anyone?

    i don't know if you've noticed something wrong in your code:
    < href http://website.com/A>
    i guess it's with the letter "a" as in "a href" and an equal sign.
    use the code <a href="http://website.com">Click Here</a>

    thanks deign....

    knew about the code goof, but thanks anyhow

    I'm looking not to hide the origin of the click, but just when the surfer puts his cursor over the link, he doesn't see it's destination in the status bar, so he won't see where he's headed except for a (example) "click here"

    I'm not sure if you can do this with HTML. You can create a flash image that takes them to the page once they click. Other wise, I think it is common to know the link via the status bar prior to clicking.

    I just wish there was a way to have it display the destination in the status bar as it will do, but have it loop back to the same page then it actually go to a second hidden link, that because of the speed of linking wouldn't be visible or discernable, but maybe that's a coding nightmare or not reasonably possible
