What about this?
Hide the link as a tooltip. I dont see why it should be visible by default.

Update summary: current situation is quite horrible IMHO, the URL is even before the tagline and nothing explains what it is or why it's there.
Tooltip is not bad but ideally this URL should be along with the export/collection (book), cite and printable version buttons; in the meanwhile, why isn't it just in the toolbox which is currently the only proper solution?

Yuvi: As you are the assignee, do you still plan to work on this?
Any plans to review the patch in comment 4?

Don't think I'll have time for it in the near future, sorry.

Yuvi: Then feel free to reassign to avoid cookielicking :)

Krinkle just let several useful comments on the patch by Siddhartha Ghai. Siddhartha Ghai or Yuvi, are you going to work on that? If not let's unassign this bug and look for someone to amend the patch. :)

Should this bug report be set to the PATCH_TO_REVIEW status?

I could work on the patch, but as it is probably obvious by now, I am a noob at this. Also, someone who knows where this extension is heading needs to clarify which of those suggestions should be implemented and which should be left out. :)

My patch just move the link so it is no more inside the h1 tag. It will still be shown though.

I guess we can just undeploy this extension in favor of Url Shortener

Not really or you would broke existing URL? Also the extension add a small link next to the title.

Which has the ShortURL:

Anyway, if ShortURL extension should be phased out, that is most probably the subject of another task :)
