Version 1.3.2

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 works with any Vault compatible permissions plugin, such as PermissionsEx and GroupManager.

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.

    The firework shooting on rankup does not work neither does the /rankup list. Also maybe make it /ranks instead?

    I'm having a major problem with this plugin all of a sudden for some reason. It was working fine up until a few hours ago and now when players try to rankup it is adding them into subgroups instead of changing their actual group and I have absolutely no idea why this is happening. Nothing changed or anything and it just started doing this. I changed the override to true and it works, but I cant use that because it then removes the subgroups from my donators for some reason. I'm like completely stuck and desperately need to figure out why this is happening please let me know if you can help me out thanks.

    i found the problem! it's not due to this plugin but due to vault ! change to an older version of vault and that will work perfectly with permissions

    I use this on my prison server and I use GroupManager; permissionsex didnt work. When players rankup they rankup perfectly fine but it doesnt globally announce the rankup.

    Please fix this as its a really annoying bug.

    @xjonny84x You can set world inheritance with pex making it so that all world have have the same ranks in them.

    Same as highfaller using Pex and it is possible to use rankup for everyworld not the world we are in !

    Is there a way to make it so it doesn't rank you to the next rank in the world you're in only? Using PermissionsEx and it is causing so many issues. Any way to just like promote for the set rank? Instead of changing it per world?

    Please add permissions per rank in config file. (or is it already implemented?)
