Issue type "bug" not displayed in dropdown

I am using the 30 day trial version of JIRA to see if it works for my organization. I went in to create an issue. And I wanted the type to be "bug". But the drop down only lists Tasks and New Feature. How do I get all the different issue types to be populated in the dropdown?

One of the things that may be occuring is that you don't have the "bug" issues type associated with your project. You can see how to check this following these instructions:</a<>>

I hope it helps.


Oh, too late... David already nailed it :)
