At the very least I do not feel all alone. As it's been said: "it ain't easy, sometimes."

I'm having trouble setting up polls. I've turn on the poll feature on a board, set up for polls only, and I have turned on the poll feature in the board permissions panel.
I can't seem to set up any polls because there is no icon nor anything that indicates a poll can be added to a post.
HELP!
Thanks.

Inside a forum you can click on Create New Topic or New Poll in the top right inside a board.

If you are in a topic already go to the bottom of the page and right hand area by reply click "Add Poll"

I must have missed something in the set up of polls, because I do not see anything within a posting field that indicates that a poll can be set up.
I'm at a loss. I've tried everything I can think of.
Polls are restricted to five forms: Vendors forms (2),the  private forum, World Leaders forum, and of course, the Polls forum.

Is there something else that must be turn on, somewhere that I'm missing? The above mentioned forums show to be poll enabled in the board management section. In board permissions I have turned on the poll feature. What am I missing here?

I figured it out! I repeat: I figured it out!
I'm not going to tell where I went wrong, as it too embarrassing.
Thanks, anyway.

Thanks!

And for the benefit of others: BE SURE TO HIT THE MODIFY BUTTON AFTER YOU MAKE A CHANGE TO ANYTHING!!!! (sorry, I didn't mean to yell)
Edited in: some fields have a 'save' button and others have a 'modify' button you must click on, or any changes made in the field will not take.

What would it take to get the stats to show who is who? I've never had a message board that didn't show the various bots like google, bing, yahoo, alexa and so on... in fact, my admin. at the time set the who's-online stats to indicate if/when the fbi and nsa were poking around.
It's important to me to know which bots are reading my site so that i may adjust my 'feelers'.
Thanks, other than that, I've figured things out... well, so far at least. There's still a few features, of which I'm not sure what they are, or even if I need them.
Again, thanks.

Stats like that are hard. I would suggest an external hit tracking script such as statcounter

 I found a stat analytics program at  https://clicky.com/help/custom
How much would you charge to set up and ensure that this program is functioning to my liking?
Thank you for considering this request.
