I plan to post a poll here soon, but I have a few questions.

Is it possible to manually end polls in a topic here?

If not, would having the topic locked prevent people from voting?

According to the phpBB support forum a 0 days poll can be ended by editing the post that created the poll. Change the number of days to 1. This assumes the poll has run for at least 1 day. I never tried this with a poll so you could be the Guinea Pig on if it works.

What are locked topics?
Locked topics are topics where users can no longer reply and any poll it contained was automatically ended.

I looked back at a poll that I myself had made back in 2017, and it doesn't look like I could edit my initial post on there.

As I remember before I was asked to become a moderator I think the OP could edit a post three times but only during that login session. As a moderator I can edit any post on the board anytime.
