With Xenforo Cloud is it possible to embed a discussion thread into another webpage?

Hi, we're currently looking at migrating to XenForo Cloud and were wondering if it is possible to embed a XenForo discussion thread into another webpage?
Not the entire forum but just a single thread. For example on a product page to allow members to discussion the product from the page itself. We would be able to create any API calls to make this happen if it is possible.

XenForo 2.2 includes a REST API which would enable you to develop a solution with which a thread could be retrieved and displayed externally. This can be used on Cloud subscriptions and if you needed to extend the functionality of the REST API it can be done via the XF add-on system.

So it would require work, just as it would if it was a non XF Cloud installation, but it should be possible.

For the most part, however, the simpler option is simply displaying the thread and its posts on the external page, but require clicking through and registering to the forum to post further replies.

This is mostly how it works on sites like MacRumors where comments for an article happen on the forum, but the article displays a feed of the thread...
