Version 1.3.1

A simple, lightweight plugin, allowing your players to pay to switch ranks on a pre-determined track. You can configure a different track of ranks by which your players can progress on, and define a price for each rank.

This plugin is dependent upon Vault.


Download the latest version of the plugin here. Put the file in your server's plugins folder. When you start/reload your server, the configuration file will be created automatically.

Additionally, this plugin requires Vault and an economy and permissions plugin compatible with Vault.

Then, you need to edit the configuration which will be inside your /plugins/rankup/ folder under the name 'config.yml.' Follow the configuration guide to configure the plugin.

Once you have configured the plugin to your liking, type /rankup reload.

Rankup Signs: To create a Rankup sign, simply enter "[Rankup]" ( without the quotes ) on the first line of a sign. Do not add any other text to the sign. When you right click the sign, you will rankup as if you had entered the /rankup command.


  • /rankup - Rank up to the next available rank.
  • /rankup version or /rankup v - Check the version of the plugin currently running.
  • /rankup reload or /rankup r - Reload the configuration.


  • rankup.* - Grant all rank up permissions.
  • rankup.rankup - Ability to do /rankup ( Not /rankup v or /rankup r, they require seperate permissions)
  • rankup.version - Ability to do /rankup version or /rankup v
  • rankup.reload - Ability to do /rankup reload or /rankup r
  • rankup.sign - Ability to create and remove Rankup signs.

    I am having the same problem as Darktouchy. I can get from Noob to apprentice but not from apprentice to guildsman. If you could please fix this or if anyone could help me out.

    If you're having the issue of the rankup not working and their ranks staying the same but losing their money anyways, install the 1.6.2 version of vault instead of running the 1.7 version. Vault 1.2.27.

    Fixed mine when I was having the issue.

    Hey, I have quite a problem with your plugin. Basically I have a prison server with 4 ranks (A,B,C,D). I use pex and rank up signs. The problem is that people can rankup from A to B, but they can't rank up from B-C and further on. When someone does try to rankup to C it takes their money but keeps them the same rank. And yes other ranks also have permissions to rankup. I really like the plugin overall, but I really need your help to sort out this problem. Thanks.

    can you add an option for prefixes and suffixes? it would look so much better on a prison server

    Do you have to use PEX or can you use zpermissions?

    The problem is simply that it is adding the player to the rank in the current world, rather than just the player themselves.

    EDIT: I switched my Vault version to an earlier release and it works just fine again. But, for the next update, could you add message customization support? Thanks! It also doesn't seem to be working well with PermissionsEx inheritance.

    I wish to make a comment on the status of the plugin.

    As far as I am aware, the plugin is currently broken. I intend on updating the plugin as soon as possible, but that may be a while. In the meantime, I suggest finding another plugin to use for the time being.

    For those of you who are having problems with this plugin, downgrade your Vault to 1.6.4, the author of this plugin needs to update it.

    Can we use this plugin to rankup with an item in inventory? Instead of currency to rankup, can the plugin check the player's inventory for a specific item, and if they have enough of it, they can rankup?
