Extended field display of values with parenthesis is too greedy

Reported by Walter McGinnis | April 24th, 2009 @ 10:38 AM | in 1.2

Right now if you use the following pattern in an extended field it will create a hyperlink:

label_text (url_value)

This is really quite handy and we use it in the extended_field.ftype "prepopulated from topic type" to do smart linking between items and topics.

However, it needs additional logic. Users may enter text where they simply want the text in the parenthesis shown as is.

To handle this case, please add logic within the first when clause of the case statement starting at app/helpers/application_helper.rb#854 that will only do a link_to or mail_to if the value in the () has a protocol or email address (similar to following two when clauses).
