The post widget will embed itself onto your WordPress post and detect if it has been posted to reddit. more details and examples

If it has NOT been posted to reddit it will show a link to encourage the user to submit.
If it has been posted, it will load a widget displaying that reddit post giving the user where they can upvote/comment that post.
