One simple option would be to use a regex to strip the end part. Something like

$url = preg_replace('#/([0-9]+)/[^/]+#', '/\1', $url);

Another way would be to just create the URL with the question ID. If you're on the question page it should be somewhere in the $qa_content variable.

My mistake, I missed that it actually is in Q2A. Complete brain fade there...
that still works
I just wanna remove title from url to shorten the url  for sharing
