    How do you create a Poll?

    Unless I'm blind, I can't seem to find a way to create a poll question.
    I see the checkbox for "Yes, post a poll with this thread", but how do I choose the poll questions and whether they are check boxes or radio buttons?

    Once you've checked "Yes, post a poll with this thread", click the "submit new thread" button below it.

    Then you can create the options.

    VB's style of poll posting kinda sucks IMO.

    First you create a new thread selecting the option to post a poll. Upon submitting you'll be taken to another page to create the actual poll. You can have up to 15 options for the poll. If you select the "Allow multiple choice: Give users the ability to select more than one answer" option then the options will use check boxes otherwise they'll be radio buttons.

    OK, I'll try that. I was just clicking the Preview button and didn't see any poll options...
