I don't want to mess around posting a poll unnecessarily, but I've hunted around the forum and I can't seem to find a "how to" on setting up a poll. If I create a new thread, I can see the "Yes, post a poll" tickbox, and the editable field where I can set the number of poll options. From there, I'm puzzled as to how you set up the poll items you can select from. I could try it and see, but I reckon I'll be flamed if I succeed adding a purposeless/test poll.
Is there somewhere in the forum that describes it in detail?
