Good, I’m gonna try this workaround. Although I wonder if this might cause some SEO problems because you know the H1 tag is very important for search engines. Any answer will be very appreciated.

Sorry, although working, it is not a good solution. Cause the h1-Tag still exists, but empty. So for SEO no very good workaround for that annoying problem.
