Simple Prefix - Easy prefixes or suffixes with PermissionsBukkit.
Requires: PermissionsBukkit or similar superperm plugin.

This plugin uses prefixes and suffixes that are very, very easy to configure inside of a yml config file.

You apply prefixes and suffixes per group in the /Simple Prefix/config.yml file.

If the user has multiple nodes, for group suffixes, the top most one in the config.yml file will be used. For example, if a user has both; simpleprefix.admin and simpleprefix.op, using the example config above, the Admin prefix would be used and not the op one, as it appears first in the configuration.

You can fully alter the chat format within the config file. You are able to achieve the following ingame: [Admin] Flabaliki: my message here Or even, just completely mix and match the template to get the look you want.

Developer API is available to those who wish to access prefixes and suffixes and use them within their own plugin.

That is all this plugin does, just a lightweight plugin for quickly getting Superperm nodes for prefixes to work.


This plugin is developed purely out of my spare time, and I do what I can to keep it running as smoothly as possible. Donations are greatly appreciated and more than welcome, thank you. Donate

    Everyone, I am making a new version of this plugin. It will be updated, and will have some changes in the code, but the main part of it will be the same. I am also adding some cool new features into it, such as using a MySQL backend, or better support for multiple prefixes.

    I'll let you guys know when its finished and uploaded.

    For me it still works on CraftBukkit 1.7.2-R0.2. However, as this project is marked as inactive, don't expect any support.
