NametagEdit is an easy to configure plugin that allows users to change their nametags and tab names. With NametagEdit, users can add an additional 16 characters before and after their name. Additionally, the reflection in use will keep the plugin compatible with several minecraft versions (currently compatible with 1.5.2 - 1.7.10).

A detailed FAQ and Configuration guide can be found here.


/nte clear <player>Clears a player's prefix and suffix
/nte prefix <player> <text>Sets a player's prefix
/nte suffix <player> <text>Sets a player's suffix
/nte reloadRefreshes and applies any changes to the config files


nametagedit.useAllows use of the /nte command to display the command list
nametagedit.clearAllows a player to clear ANYONE's prefix/suffix
nametagedit.reloadAllows use of the /nte reload parameter
nametagedit.edittagsAllows a player to edit ANYONE's prefix/suffix


TabListDisabledIf true, NametagEdit will not format the tab
MetricsEnabledIf true, NametagEdit will collect stats for the project page

NametagEdit API

Jarcode wrote a nice little API for developers to use. You can eliminate features of this plugin and even have your own if you have some more advanced uses for these nametags. Click Here.

Will this work with maps that use scoreboard features?

Trying this with adventure maps that already have pre set scoreboard teams is not reccomended. Although it will likely work, the scoreboard teams must have a letter or symbol in its name, and the players playing on the map cannot have a nametag assigned from this plugin.

I removed the plugin, but I still see prefixes and suffixes on my nametag!

Old versions of this plugin saves data along with the scoreboard.dat object in the world folder. In order to reset all the prefixes and suffixes, you must delete this file. Be carefull when doing this, as it will remove all scoreboard data in your server. Versions 1.6+ no longer do this.

How long can my name be with this plugin?

You can add a maximum of 16 characters for each a prefix and suffix, allowing a total of 32 characters that can be added to your nametag.

Does my nametag really change?

This plugin manipulates scoreboard teams to add prefixes and suffixes, the player's actual name, skin, and nametag stays enact.

Why not use TagAPI?

TagAPI makes edits to the actual nametag, thus allowing changes to your actual username above your head, but is limited to 16 characters for the entire nametag. TagAPI cannot be used to properly add a group prefix to player's nametags, since minecraft usernames can be up to 16 characters long.

Where's the original author?

The former author, Wacos, has taken a break from Minecraft and development and has given Cory full ownership over the source and plugin.

    This plugin conflicts with PurpleIRC, BanManager, and various other plugins. Are you aware of these issues? Can you fix them ASAP please?
