General - a plugin for basic administrator commands

This project is now ABANDONED. However, if anyone wants to take it over, feel free to contact me either through PMs here or in the IRC at #bukkitdev (on, and I'll hand over ownership of the project. Additionally, you can fork this project on github if you intend to take over.


General provides a small set of basic administrative commands for your server, such as /give, /weather, and /time.

I recommend using sk89q's CommandHelper in conjunction with this plugin. Starting from 3.4.5, there is a command-helper.txt file included with the download which you can copy to CommandHelper's config.txt for some handy aliases, such as /spawn and /home.

    I use this all the time, it's much simpler than essentials. I am having one problem though, whenever I issue a /general command it doesn't do anything (nothing, not just "Unknown Command") but other general commands are working (/spawn, /kit, etc.)

    Oh, and the MOTD. Sometimes that is the only way to send players information if they don't read our forums.

    Hi Celtic_Minstrel, My servers use it. This plugin is small and simple. Just what we need as we don't use many plugins. It gives us the power to control give, teleporting, weather and time beyond what Bukkit would provide easily. With over 100 players on our lists, we certainly appreciate it being updated.

    Query: Does anyone actually use this anymore? I'm asking mainly to determine whether there's any point in updating it again.

    Huh. It seems I still haven't uploaded the latest version that I built a couple weeks ago. Sorry!

    He doesn't need permission from me (since it's open source), but he has it anyway.

    @ccman972: Go Thanks for this motivating speech *cough*

    I'm updating this mainly for myself, but i thought it couldn't be that bad to share it with the world.

    Just go ahead and suggest an other Plug-In (besides Essentials). If i get tired of updating, i will look into that.

    Updated for CB 1.3.1-R1.0:

    • Removed aliases (oak,spruce,brich,jungle,stairs) for the sake of new hooks:
      Discs by name (disc:ward), Logs (log:spruce), Slabs (slab:oak), ...
      Slab hooks only works with slab:type, step:type are still the old ones!
    • Using the new AsyncPlayerChatEvent instead of the old PlayerChatEvent (hope this works but no errors so far)
    • Compiled with Java7 so maybe bugs out Java6 users for no reason...

    You have to delete the old items.yml for the new items to work!
