This project has become inactive.

This project is inactive and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of Minecraft. The author may have abandoned it, or it may have outlived its usefulness.

I am no longer interested in maintaining this project. If someone else wants to take it on I'll transfer it to them.

Community Bridge links up your Minecraft player accounts to their corresponding website/forum/CMS accounts. It uses the web application's groups to assign players to permissions groups and stores various bits of information about the player in the forum's database.

Please use the issue system to submit bug reports, feature/enhancement requests and support requests.

UUIDs Most of the programming is done. Lots and lots and lots of testing to do, however.

If you'd like to help localize (translate) CommunityBridge's messages, go here: Crowd-in Project for CommunityBridge

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

  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version

It can be turned off specifically for CommunityBridge in CommunityBridge's config.yml. Before turning it off, please read my explanation of why you should leave it turned on: Why Plugin Metrics?

    It has been interesting working on this project. However, my enthusiasm has been waning for the last few months and I find I just don't have the head-space or energy to continue. If someone else wishes to take it on, I'll transfer the accounts to them.

    Is it possible so if someone buys a donor rank it will rank them up on the forums such as this order?

    BuyCraft > Server Rank > Forum Rank


  • Avatar of SXRWahrheit SXRWahrheit Aug 12, 2014 at 14:12 UTC - 0 likes

    Alright, it looks like I can solve my conundrum with a custom script for my donations application on the web side.

    Any chance for you to look at the hierarchy option I suggested? :)

    I'm having problems trying to think about how to handle VIP promotion.

    People get credit towards VIP time on my server based on how much they donate. After their time runs out, they go back to their previous group. On the forums, this is done automatically.

    However, with the new Mojang EULA, I need to use a separate group for VIP in-game and also give them the permissions from their normal group, with the VIP group just being a "mask".

    What's the best way to do this using CommunityBridge?

    @Djakuta: Go: It is important to note that CommunityBridge does not have a database of its own. It reads and writes directly to the forum's database.

    I am really confuse about the Database. In the config file I understand that the Database it reffers to is my website/Forum Database. I don't see any error messages on my console. Please Help. I really wish there was a walkthrough step by step on how to configure this to MyBB forum.
