    @ShadowDog007: Go

    Saw that after downloading. You should put one on github or add a devbukkit page too so people don't have to run it. :)
    I run and our Minecraft server at - feel free to visit.

    @flaffling94: Go

    Not sure, should work fine. Else you can edit plugin.yml and just remove the whole permission for horses.set.user

    @SXRWahrheit: Go

    Yah, its added to the top of the configuration files :P

    Do you have config documentation, or an example config file?

    @ShadowDog007: I use PermissionEx.

    If i block this then they cannot buy horses when i give the permission I have blocked horses.set.user

    @Reynergodoy: Go

    Err, it is?

    @flaffling94: Go

    What permissions plugin do you use? Its different depending on that. You could have to add something to the front of the permission like ^ or -

    You wrote "Yes, you need to deny the permission horses.set.user

    That permission grants almost all other permissions. From there you can allow others."

    How can i deny the permissions? It doesnt work maybe i write it wrong.

    Nice work. Now some more administration features and this plugin is perfect! I wish me things like a protection bypass with permissions, so that server stuff can ride, dismiss or remove any horse and a option to view the donkeys inventory.

    Finally got support for UUID's done.

    Only works with YAML database however.

    When you get it, Horses will automatically migrate players data when they access it. You will want to do it manually when you first install the update. Run /h rebuild

    Should be approved soon :)
