Special thanks to ryanopaz & Vrazon (http://vrazon.com) for making this happen.

This is a special case where you have private categories, or private community. it basically provides a landing page with the title of the discussion as a teaser (use wisely), instead of directing you to login immediately, or blocking access. As the title has to match the slug of the share url as well as linked to the id, then the likelihood of using it to snoop is low.

If you want to edit he view teaser.pp then copy it to themes/[yourtheme]/views/discussionteaser (lowercase). However it is optimised to be scraped by ShareThis, hence the odd format.
