    Question Hide webpage link URL from browser status bar?

    Anyone know how to hide webpage link URL from the browser status bar with Dreamweaver CS4? So that when the mouse cursor hovers over a link on a webpage, the URL won't be shown in the browser status bar. This comes in useful for when I put my email as a link on a webpage but I don't want to let my email address be known prematurely. I prefer to do this through the Dreamweaver CS4 interface without coding, if possible. What is the easiest way to hide link URL like this? Thanks.

    I don't know how to do that without coding...so I cant say...but I will say even if you block that message from showing up in the status bar it can still be easily seen by viewing page source. I suggest you use an email script as to that your address is not known until the email is actually sent...This is great for stopping spam...I use a jquery script on my sites and I have no problem with it...

    In order to achieve this you must use coding.

    Here's an example for you.

    Code:
    <script language='javascript' type='text/javascript'>
    function go()
    {
        location.href="mailto:youre-mail"
    }
    </script>
    
     <a href="javascript:;" onclick="go();">Link text</a>
