This version is incomplete. I'm not satisfied with the changes to the Online Widget code and I've already started to make changes to the discussion link.

For example, instead of a long complicated use of get_post_custom_values such as the following:

$thread_id = get_post_custom_values( 'thread_id', $post_id );

It is far simpler to call $post->thread_id.

$thread_id = $post->thread_id;
