So I hope this is just a rookie mistake with this plugin but it doesn't seem to be and a design issue. It should be able to be fixed without too much trouble, I think. 1) The plugin only noindexes posts in forums you don't want indexed, not the forum pages themselves and the pages of posts in the forum to be indexed. 2) rel=canonical tags are left on the pages that are supposed to be noindexed. This is bad practice as it sends two messages to Google. Since this may be another template to modify, I would guess that a conditional statement might need to be entered regarding whether a thread is or is not noindexed. While I'd like to continue using the plugin that I bought yesterday, I'm hoping that this is a setup mistake by me and, if not, that this is remedied. Otherwise, the process requires manual setup for the entire process. Thanks for your consideration.
