    Given the right tools (e.g. Sam Spade and some deobfuscation tools) you can decode any link and get the affiliate ID out of it.
    Innovative advertising with Slimeware Corporation and Telephore. Mail-order fuel with Petrol Direct.

    if someone wants to see it, they can do it. just run a program like ethereal which will show the eventual URL that gets passed to the browser.

    Are you talking about defeating something like Norton? If so, that's a different animal than just not letting the user see the URL they are going to click on.

    If you're doing it to hide it from the user, you're wasting your time. That's a little like preventing people from right clicking on a page - sucks.

    I use PHP redirection with a simple admin area, makes updating links a bit easier as well.

    You should be able to find similiar scripts at www.hotscripts.com if you don't know how to write it yourself.
