    I am trying to use the following code:
    $ftpHelper = $this->getHelper('ForumThreadPost');
    $forum = $ftpHelper->assertForumValidAndViewable($options->EWRmedio_autoforum);
    $forumId = $forum['node_id'];
    However, it appears that getHelper is not a valid function in models; only in controllers. How would I do what I'm trying to do here inside of a model?

    Okay... I decided to just use this:
    if (!$forum = $this->getModelFromCache('XenForo_Model_Forum')->getForumById('2'));
    	print_r($forum); exit;
    However, I'm having an issue with this... for some reason this code ALWAYS validates. It prints the $forum array info, and then exits. If $forum is getting retrieved properly, it shouldn't validate and the script should move on...

    Are there any other ways of using the ForumThreadPost ControllerHelper in a model?

    Might be able to do something like;

    $frontController XenForo_Application::get('fc');
    $fakeController = new XenForo_ControllerPublic_Index($frontController->getRequest(), $frontController->getResponse(), $frontController->route());
    $helper $fakeController->getHelper('ForumThreadPost');
    Completely untested.
