#3049: Support Forums: Add an indication of "Site URL" link for logged-out users

 #363 added a "Site URL" link displayed under support topics. The link is
 currently only displayed to logged-in users, as per comment:11:ticket:363.

 One of ru_RU moderators suggested some further improvements:
 * There should be some indication of the link for logged-out users, for
 better context. Otherwise, the discussion is not fully clear unless you
 log in and then suddenly see the link. The indication could be the URL
 itself (if made open for everyone) or just an icon with a notice like "URL
 only available for logged-in users".
 * There should be an indication of the link for RSS readers as well. Some
 people (including moderators) follow the forums via RSS and could ask for
 the link without knowing it's already there.
 * The link should be renamed to "URL to the problem" or something along
 these lines.

 In technical terms, the "Site URL" link is not any different from any
 links in post content, so maybe it could be a regular `nofollow` link as
 well, open for everyone?
