XF 1.2 Display Post/Message in Page

I found the tutorial that shows how to display the contents of a post inside a XF page node, but I'm having trouble getting the posts to display like they do inside a thread, instead of just showing the post contents.

I'd like to setup a page that shows the first post of several different threads, with links to go read the full thread. I'd like the posts to appear on the page just as they would in the threads, so the page almost looks like a thread itself.

Digging around I haven't found much to help with this and my testing has led to nothing but wasted time and frustration. I wish XenForo's controllers were more straightforward. x_x

Could someone point me in the right direction?
