XF 2.2 Is there a way to display a thread as widget?


New member
I was hoping to display a whole thread along with an an inline reply text box as a widget. Sort of like a chat box through the back door.

Something that looks like this:

But is actually the content of a thread/chat as opposed to status updates

I've implemented Pusher and a real time reply add-on so threads and messages update instantly without needing to manually refresh or fetch new posts.

This is fine as a workaround for Xenforo Cloud not having the ability to configure server settings and enabling real time messages natively. But there's no such add-on that uses Pusher API to implement live chat for forum members.

In the absence of such an add-on, I thought I'd check if it's possible to just pin a thread's content as a widget instead. Whether natively or via paid add-on.

And if there is actually a way to implement live chat using Pusher on Xenforo cloud, I'd love to hear about it.
