HelperBot

Still works!: The last update was in February but it should still work perfectly fine as there has been no major changes to the Bukkit API. (Last tested: April 2013)

This is the successor of StickyHelp.

This simple help plugin will read from a text file and HTTP, and output the contents on the screen. It supports the &(0-9a-f) color codes.

TRY THE 2.2 BETA!!!

It's got the &k color code, shortcodes, custom permissions, multiword pages, language files and more! (The download is broken so just rename whatever file you get to HelperBot.jar) Current Version: 2.1

Downloads

How to install

  1. Download the .jar file
  2. Put it in your plugins/ folder
  3. Start the server, or reload if it's already running

Commands

/help <page>
Shows help
/addhelp <page> <content>
Adds <page> with <content> in it (newline character configured in config.yml, default is "/n/")
/delhelp <page>
Deletes <page>

How to use

Tags

[url]<url>
Downloads a file from the web and replaces the tag with the source/content of the file downloaded

Color Code Cheat Sheet

Permissions

helperbot.help
Can read ALL help files
helperbot.help.<page>
Can read specified page.

NOTE: Doing helperbot.help and then -helperbot.help.<page> will NOT work because helperbot.help overrides everything else. Do helperbot.help.* and then -helperbot.help.<page>.

helperbot.addhelp
Can create help file
helperbot.delhelp
Can remove help file

Permissions Plugins

Works with any SuperPerms-compatible plugins. I recommend PermissionsEx.

Changing command

In case you want another plugin to have the /help command (or other commands), and have HelperBot have another command, you can to this:

DOESN'T WORK AS OF 2.0, KEPT THIS AS REFERENCE IF YOU USE OLDER VERSIONS

  1. Rename HelperBot.jar to HelperBot.zip
  2. Open the .zip file
  3. Open plugin.yml with Notepad
  4. Add a command under the aliases section of the command
  5. Save plugin.yml
  6. Rename HelperBot.zip to HelperBot.jar

    @Delocaz Is it possible to have the players on my server using this plugin and the staff using the essentials help plugin?

    German: Ist es möglich, die Spieler auf meinem Server mit diesem Plugin und das Personal mit dem Plugin essentials Hilfe haben?

    Könnte man vllt. bei den Farben die Formate &l (Fett), &n (Unterstrichen), &m (Durchgestrichen), &k (Magic) und &o (Kursiv) hinzufügen? Würde mich freuen.

    Incase anyone is wondering, the plugin still works amazingly.

    @KyranOostra: Go

    This plugin can do that, if you make files named "pickaxe.txt" and put the text you want it to say in there. Same with sword.txt, hoe.txt, axe.txt and so on.

    Is this plugin like players write "/help sword" or something, they will get some information? Like here, about a sword? Like this...

    Player: (uses) /help pickaxe

    Chat: Pickaxe: a pickaxe is a tool. Its used to mine ores and stone easily.

    Like that? If it isnt, is there a plugin like that... or make one like this XD

    @erisawesome: Go

    How does it not work? Get anything in the console? Or does nothing happen whatsoever? Are you sure your permissions are set up correctly?

    @BlocklyCrafter: Go

    That is not possible. It's not possible to have the plugin not reserve /help but have it use /help <argument>. You can, however, use CommandHelper to redirect a /help with no arguments to whatever help command you want.

    @Delocaz Can you please make it possible to use the default help-thing too? Because like I want, is when you're using /help, the default help comes up. And then when I create a new .txt file in the folder called ranks, you can use /help ranks too...
