Make idea title selectable (or copy to clipboard on click)

For some reason, when viewing an idea (in the portal), the idea title is rendered as a link with class header-link.

Consequently, this makes it non-selectable text, at least in Chrome (Windows). However, I often need to do precisely that, copy the title of an idea to mention it elsewhere.

Trying to do so, a bunch of irrelevant markup is selected and thus constantly needs cleanup.

Alternatively, clicking the title link could be used to copy the title to the clipboard, or even copy something more sophisticated like:

Idea Title Foo Bar Baz

    @Austin Merrit: Many thanks for the implementation.

    Sry for the late reply, somehow didn't seem to have received any notification on this back in Nov.

    Btw., copy via right-click on Win was not possible, since there was no selection there, as far as I remember.

    Tobias, are you able to right click the link and copy? I am able to do this in Chrome on Mac. We may be able to change the format, but wanted to offer that as an immediate solution as well if it is possible on Windows. Thanks!
