  • Fully configurable configuration!

  • Quick and painless reloading!
  • Option to randomize broadcasts!
  • Color code support!!
  • Run commands in your messages!


Just drag and drop into your plugins folder then restart or reload your server! Simple!

Usage and Information:

This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version Opting out of this service can be done by editing plugins/Plugin Metrics/config.yml and changing opt-out to true.

This plugin features an update command which will check if you are running the latest build and download the update to the plugin folder if it not currently installed. You are required to trigger the command manually and you must restart or reload the server for changes to take effect.

Thanks to my donators!

    I'm having the same problem as you with JSON message. It seems interesting but I couldn't get it to work.

    I have been using AutoMessage for a while and had no problems but the other day I logged on to my server and the JSON messages I had were just showing up as plain white text and none of the click events were working. The only thing that was working that I had implemented was a hover event. I don't know what happened but I didn't change anything in my config.

    @ELCHILEN0 There is no benefit in removing the prefix at all, I now will have to waste loads of time putting the SAME prefix in front of every message? Why remove features that work perfectly fine before, it makes no sense, it was a very basic feature that is needed for this type of plugin.

    Great plugin! Just suggesting that you should add support for the letters å,ä,ö.

    Hello ! Could you list all the marks and letters that are not supported by this plugin ? Example: : " or ő,é á,ű etc...

    Thank you for the support! It is great to see that some people appreciate work!

    Depending on your permission manager you can enable or disable permissions in different worlds. You can then use the permission node corresponding to a message list to either add or negate the message to that world.

    I am available for custom plugin development! Send me a message if you are interested! BFAK:ELCHILEN0,90636997,74024bb5dfa84365786510e2a1a1c43aab5bd77b81384357fdd80f70e630c663

    Just wondering... Is there a way to make a message appear only in a certain world?
    And by the way. Great work here. I have added some beautiful messages to my server with this plugin already.
