Website link in institutional contact sidebar adds current site as a prefix

See attached screenshot. Clicking on the "Website" button in the right-hand sidebar should open www.peanut.com but actually tries to open 2x.text.artefactual.com/www.peanut.com. Note that the URL link in the Contacts area works properly.

- Priority changed from High to Low
Note: this is only the case if the user does NOT add http:// as a prefix. Evelyn, I edited your contact information on the test institution, and changed it to http://www.peanut.com. The link now works as expected. I will try to add a note about this to our documentation soon. It would be nice to fix it so that wasn't necessary, but I have changed the priority of this issue to low - will leave it to David to determine if we change this to Won't fix or not.

Maybe this didn't need its own branch/PR, but...
Sorry about the messy PR, an extra commit got in there because I forgot to switch to qa/2.2.x before making the new branch. I'll just cherry-pick the one commit if it's OK.

this is interesting to me.... that we were asking for a tooltip, and you added a different fix instead. but it works.
Tested with random.com - which will lead to a domain squatter's page, so it resolves.
If you enter just "random.com" into the field, the sidebar website button will still work, and it will take you to http://random.com. However, the view page text will not automatically become a hyperlink (because it's looking for the http:// to generate a hyperlink automatically). This is good, because it gives a visual cue to the user that they can fix if they wish, without breaking the sidebar link funcitonality.
Marking verified. Thanks!
