After I installed this, it wont show the forums or the dropdown list, only the description.
I have tried it on all for styles, and on the standard style too.

If your Forum Jump Menu is disabled, try enabling it. That worked for me.

If you want only selected forums affected try:

This step only addresses which forums are affected when creating a new thread. It does not affect the forums listed in the Jump Menu.

Is there a way to only enable this for certain forums and then to only select specified forums from the dropdown?

Go into Plugin Manager --> Cyb - Prevent Newbies from Posting to Wrong Forum - MN (newthread_start)

Find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


and Replace it with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Where "x,y,z" are replace it with your Forum ID's that you want affected. To add more forums just separate the ID's with a comma. See if that works.
