How do I create a link to a hidden section?

I've created hidden sections in my cafepress shop. I'd like to create special things there for only certain people to see

How do I link to that via my website?

I use php, and my other shop links look similar to this:


Code:
shop/?i=9999999999.myshop.999999+coolstuff.html


Thanks!

First of all, you should really be using aliases in your store ID entries, to get rid of that first long number.

Secondly, you might consider entering the hidden section as an additional store ID entry in cpadmin, giving it an alias (like "myhiddensection"), and accessing it with shop/?i=myhiddensection.

Ok, good idea about the aliases.

As for the adding the hidden section as a store ID, I didn't quite understand that part.

I thought it actually had to be a separate CafePress Store ID - but in this context, store ID just means a new "store" within cpshop, is that correct?

Tell me if this is correct:

For "Name" I would put my hidden category name, and for Store ID, I would put in the name of my store, as above in the dummy section?

Almost.  For Store ID, you'd put in the store ID/section number combo.

For example, for:

http://www.cafepress.com/geeklove/481591

you'd use:

geeklove/481591
