Answer: First, you need to create a new topic like you normally would, filling out the subject and message. Instead of clicking the Submit New Topic button, however, scroll down a little further to find the Additional Options. The third section in these options is to Post a Poll. Check the box next to "Yes, post a poll with this thread" and select the number of options you want everyone to be able to choose from.



Now, when you submit your new topic, you will be taken to a form where you can create your poll. You may only post one question per poll - multiple questions will require you make multiple topics. On this form, you must at least set a poll question and list your options. The options can be text, or you can add IMG codes for pictures.

There are a few optional choices on the polls as well. If you want, you can set up your poll to automatically close after so many days. You can also change it so that your poll allows multiple selections (the default is to only be able to choose one) and to make votes public (showing who voted for each option).

Be sure to preview your poll before posting! Once you have posted a poll, you will not be able to edit the poll options.
