Can someone tell me how can I hide my affiliate urls from displaying in my status bar and use another url to mask it?.

I'm using clickbank and would like to show the main website url instead of clickbank affiliate's url.

You would do it with JavaScript...

<a href="http://whatever..." onMouseOver="window.status='your text here';" onMouseOut="window.status='';">

There are free url cloaking sites that will do it all for you. I use URL123 myself, but a google will give you lots of others - like Short.url (I think it is). All you do is sign in, paste in the url you need to cloak, and you get a shortened url link to use instead. Piece of cake, innit? Got an explanation of this on one of my sites somewhere...
