    I found a thread to which I wanted to add a poll. I made a new post in the thread and realized there was not an option to do such. I then went to the first post in the thread and opened the edit window. I was still unable to add a poll. Is this not possible to do in XF?

    well, this was my first post merge in XF

    I selected the one post in a new thread with a poll, and I selected the first post in the old thread. I chose Merge post and.....the "please vote" from the new thread was added to the end of the 1st post in the old thread. The poll disappeared.

    You have to merge into the thread with the poll; i.e. choose that as the destination thread.

    You need to merge the threads, not the posts.
