How does one insert a poll in a diary?

I have not wanted to do this since the advent of DK5, but now I do. None of the tool sin the toolbar appear to correspond to creating of a poll. peregrine kate's excellent diary on how to write a diary, including all the bells and whistles, neglects how to add a poll, even though she includes one in the diary! Searching the knowledge base for "poll" retrieves the null set.

Thank you for your help.

    Weird. Whenever I've written a diary (lately, at least) it automatically includes a query at the bottom of the diary template that says "Add a User Poll." I tried it just now (clicked on that) and it then goes to a template for a poll, beginning with "Ask a Question Here..." and under that "Add an answer..."

    It's definitely not a part of the toolbar.

    Thanks for your help, Eyesbright. And thanks for asking, gizmo59. A whole bunch of those older resources need to be updated, so that documentation for that particular feature should be on the list for the next edition.
