I don't think that you can hide particular part of the url from the user....
but you can hide the Whole url from the user, by using Window.status method in URL ...(actual syntax you will get from Google)..
But i am doubtful that this method might not supported by most of the browsers now....

till you can try this method....

This type of stuff is possible using a little bit of WFServlet scripting.


Then you would call it something like this:

The WFSerlvet scripting would go within:
WF Admin Console -> Configuration -> Custom Settings
