You have to uninstall older versions first!
Before you can use the modification while posting, you have to enable the modification.
After installation only the admin can use the drop down list. If other groups should use this as well, go to "Admin -> Members -> Permissions -> General Permissions".
Before the boardmoderators can use the modification you have to enable the option "Enable for boardmoderators".
