How to Create A Poll
« on: September 26, 2012, 02:28:12 PM »
Start by clicking New Poll instead of New Topic .  Fill in the following areas:

  • Subject. This is the heading readers will see in the list of topics.
  • A question. For example, "What is your eye color?"
  • Options 1-5. For example, Black, Brown, Hazel,Green, Blue. Note: You do not need to fill in all five options. You can provide as few as two or add more than the default of five by clicking (Add Option), which adds one option at a time.
  • Poll Options. The default settings work well for most polls, unless you want to check the box to allow users to change their votes.
  • Body content. This can be anything. For example, "I am curious about the eye color of our members here."  Body content can be as short as one word, but it must be filled in.

When you have finished, click Post just like any other topic. Clicking Preview does not give you a preview of the poll itself -- only the subject and body content.
