Okay give this a try !!
You must keep the code as it is and i have tested it and it's working on my forum fine

Code:
<div style="text-align: center;"><form name="jump3">

 <select name="menu"
onchange="location=document.jump3.menu.options[document.jump3.menu.selectedIndex].value;"
 value="GO">
<option value="">Click Here for Staff</option>
<option value="http://joinbro.forumotion.com/u1">admin</option>
<option value="LINK HERE">name</option>
<option value="LINK HERE">name</option>
<option value="LINK HERE">name</option>
<option value="LINK HERE">name</option>
</select>
</form></div>
EDIT:
If you would like more then one on the forum you will need to change the menu name like this
Find all the names in the code and change them
Code:
jump3
to
Code:
jump4a
and the next one will be
Code:
jump5b
And so on what this is a name the menu is looking for and if the name is the same it don't know how to change the settings Wink


Hope that helps

Your friendly helper Ape Neutral
