#40448 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Semantic elements for non-link links: edit-form-advanced.php

The "Get Shortlink" link should be a button. Since the slug and the form this button is part of disappear when JavaScript is disabled, it should suffice to just change it to that and call it a day.

Related: #26504.
