    I need the object of the first posting of a thread.

    All I have get gone is to get the flat array but not the populated object of the first posting by using

    $postModel = XenForo_Model::create('XenForo_Model_Post');
    $post = $postModel->getPostById($this->_params['thread']['first_post_id']);
    at XenForo_ViewPublic_Thread_View

    I would need the value of

    as it is accessed at post template.

    Someone knows about this?

    Thank you.

    If you need it in PHP, check the post model for XenForo, it has a built in function 'canLikePost'.

    If you just need it in the thread_view template, $firstPost.canLike is already available in the template.

    Maybe {$thread.first_post_id}?

    Or do you need the whole post?

    I don't think you can get the whole post by template calls in that template.

    Take a look at library/XenForo/ControllerPublic/Threads.php actionPreview. It's a good example of how to look up the full post info.
