In summary, the conversation is about creating a poll with options and where to type in the options. The other person has already ticked the box for the number of options but is unsure of where to type them. The expert explains that after clicking submit, the text boxes will appear for entering the options and that the thread will still be visible while typing them. The person then mentions a mistake in the title and asks if it can be changed, to which the expert confirms it can be fixed.

hey want to post a thread with a polling option.

I have ticked the box saying I want "x" amount of options... But where do I type what the options are?

I.e if it was blue vs red... Where/when am i able to type this to get red and blue next to the polling options?

Thanks

A poll should have appeared and if you selected 5 options, five text boxes should appear to type in questions.

I can add a poll to this thread.

Yes, after you click submit. The thread will appear while you're still entering the poll options.

I just posted it. It was supposed to be titled the big question... I didn't put the n on the end by accident so it reads questio... Is it possible for me or a mentor to change this?
