    Default Hiding URLS

    I would like to know how to hide my url's. Not all of course. That would be stupid.

    I just want to hide a selected few. Does anyone know how to do this? I think I saw some of this on 30minutebacklink dot com. (Try entering a random url and it re-writes it)

    The example above forwards/redirects it to a .php webpage.

    Does anyone know how to do something like this, hiding the url?

    I don't completely get why and how you want to hide the url, do you mean like when you click on a button it doens't show it in the status bar, or you can type something in the address bar like "foo", and it would take you to foofoo.net? So can you please re-explain it?

    do you mean totally erase the url and put something random? there is no way a website could do this. This is actually a new feature in firefox 3, where if you type something in without an extension it will google it trying to find a site and will direct you there e.g. erase the url in your browser and type pie; the result i got in firefox 3 was http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pie.

    Okay, since the interest is their.

    I'm trying to prevent back-ward hacking. I have a few projects that I'm going to work on, online.

    I'm trying to provide an environment where only a selected few have access to this information but have a nice conference/forum/dialogue setting to help benefit the projects.

    I'm not trying to be 'hacker-proof' but at least 'novice hacker proof'.

    do you mean totally erase the url and put something random?
    URL re-write are secondary, but this (the quote) is exactly what I was asking.

    Maybe the 'why?' was a better question. I hope I can get some help, with the clarifications I added.

    There's a mod re-write, you can check those out here:
    http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/mod/mod_rewrite.html
    Also if you want you can just make a whole section of your site that completely is for people with a special password then on every singe page you check to see if there's a cookie saying that they're logged in. I don't know if this helps at all, but I hope it does.

    Do you have any suggestions on where to get started with creating a password type thing for my site? I'm not a total newbie but I'm still a newbie (no php knowledge...)

    I know of that site. I was hoping more of a predesigned type thing or specific tutorials. Not the entire language of php. (I'll get to that later) For example, their are open source forums...are their open source login in things that can check cookies (like nile spoke of).
