Fetch Forum ID by Thread ID in Non-Object

    As the title says, I'm trying to fetch the forum id (node_id) by the 'thread_id'. I tried to use the $this->getModelFromCache['XenForo_Model_Forum'] method, so I could use getForumByThreadId, but I guess I can't do that where I'm trying to do it. I get the following error: Fatal error: Using $this when not in object context in /dirs/to/myAddon/Listener.php on line 165.

    Is there a way to do this, somehow, without having to make another call to the dB?

    You're trying to use $this in your Listener which won't work because it's not in an object context.

    Also, the getModelFromCache function won't be available in your Listener so trying to call it as if it is won't work.

    The correct way to do this in a Listener is:

    Thanks Chris Deeming. That did add an additional query to each thread view, but it works.
