Skype links are malformed

Reported by Vitaly Krjacko | May 23rd, 2012 @ 06:51 AM | in 0.9.10 "Alekhine"

Hi all,

in application_helper.rb the skype link is made as a http:// here:
def web_presence_icons(person)

[ :blog, :linkedin, :facebook, :twitter, :skype ].map do |site|
  url = person.send(site)
  unless url.blank?
    url = "http://" << url unless url.match(/^https?:\/\//)
    link_to(image_tag("#{site}.gif", :size => "15x15"), url, :"data-popup" => true, :title => t(:open_in_window, url))


For a quick fix should be extended with something like:
if site == :skype then

url = "callto://" << url


url = "http://" << url unless url.match(/^https?:\/\//)
