    How to hide actual url from status bar?

    Hi. I've a joomla site to promote different products and wonder how I hide the actual url from the status bar and show my site url and a page instead? I just want to kind of not sure the advertisement url and info so some user not think I'm making commission.

    It's not a discussion about if I should hide or not, etc. It's about how to hide and show a different url on status bar but when they click it will go to the actual or origin url?

    I can think of this.

    <a onclick="direct('http://www.actualurl.com');" href="#"></a>

    Inside direct function I know how to forward. But this will show the # side at the end.

    Is it possible to show maybe something instead of # or my site url plus a page like www.mysite.com/productname?

    Is there an easy way that will use some simple js and not use jquery or plugin as I use joomla and maybe hard to include jquery and other plugin?

    Hope anyone can help. Thank you.
