Is it possible to add additional polls in the topics which allows more than one poll?

No.

There is a mod to do that, but it hasn't been updated in years and will probably not work "out of the box" anymore.

I saw this mod but it is not compatible with the version I am using now. So looking for something else.

And as far as I know, there is nothing else.

Perhaps post in Mod Requests or take a look at the support topic of that mod here Additional Polls - Some people seem to have been working on making it 2.0.x compatible.

If this is the mod you want and it doesn't install cleanly, post for assistance in that mod's support thread.

But while we're here, I just tried to install it on a bare 2.0.14 -> 2.0.15 setup and after I'd set emulation to 2.0 RC4 I just had to make one edit to Display.php after installation.

Thanks for your help, I installed it on my forum but somehow I don't see this option, do I need to add something?

Once you've created a poll topic, you can open that topic and click the button "add poll".

Might be a good idea to ask in the mod's own support topic. :)

I guess it happened after I changed something in code which was shown earlier, is there something what could remove this option?
