Calling applyThreadPrefix doesn't work as expected

    I know that this is a bit strange, but let's see if someone gets what I am missing.

    I need to call XenForo_Model_InlineMod_Thread::applyThreadPrefix so that I can change the prefix of one or more threads.

    Yes, the user is authorized, and so is the forum for that particular prefix.

    I am calling the function from an extention of XenForo_ControllerPublic_InlineMod_Thread, so I am creating that class:

    $threadInlineModel XenForo_Model::create('DaVinciDigital_GuildManager_Extend_Model_InlineMod_Thread');
    Within the function I call it like this:

                $unchangedThreadsIds = array();
    $errorKey '';
    $options = array ();
    $prefixId = (string)$guilds[$thread['node_id']]['deguilded_prefix_id'];
    On the first run, it does NOT work. Function is called, parameters are there and correct, but simply is does not write to DB, nor I get a moderator log as expected. So, something is off. Still I get no error ($errorKey) nor any unchanged thread ($unchangedThreadIds). Then out of the blue, once in a while, it works. Behavior is not coherent.

    I tried to mimic the function by creating a new datawriter, and that doesn't work either: it simply does not write to DB. The only solution I found was to raw write to the DB with this:

    $db XenForo_Application::get('db');

            UPDATE xf_thread SET
            prefix_id = "
    .$guilds[$thread['node_id']]['deguilded_prefix_id'] . "
            WHERE thread_id = "

    (at the moment it is running within a loop, so it isn't efficient as it should).

    Any idea on what I may be missing?

    I think I am getting a step forward.

    applyThreadPrefix is failing because it is not passing the canEditThreads checks. In particular it is not passing canViewThreadAndContainer

    So I can't view... mmmm I have checked all permissions and they are correct. If I use the original InLine Mod selection of XenForo it works without any problem.

    I am missing something, but I can't quite catch what.

    Nothing, I just can't find the reason why I am failing canViewThreadAndContainer while the original XenForo doesn't fail.
