Simple Prefix


Simple Prefix Logo

Updated for 1.7.9!

Simple Prefix - Easy prefixes or suffixes with permissions.

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 prefix or suffixes, the top most one in the config.yml file will be used. For example, if a user has both; simpleprefix.owner and simpleprefix.mod, then the owner group should be placed above the mod group, in the config file. This will make the owner group more important than the mod group, and owners won't get the mod prefix.

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.


  • Uses permissions to apply prefixes and suffixes to selected users or groups.
  • Colour codes are fully supported.
  • Configure the chat format to display however you want.
  • Developer API for fetching prefixes and suffixes
  • Easy to use commands for adding / removing prefixes in game!
  • Set prefixes and suffixes per group or per user.
  • Plays nicely with Essentials /nick command.
  • Option to allow multiple prefixes / suffixes, and a configurable separator which is placed between them to separate them.
  • UUID support.

    @DejonPlayMC: Go

    Make sure you are in the Fighter group, and not in another group. Can I see your config file, and can you tell me how you did the permissions?

    @ThisUsernameIsMine: Go

    That's because it needs an internet connection. The UUIDs won't work without it. You have asked this and I have answered it the same way, before.

    I'm getting a NPE: "Could not pass event AsyncPlayerPreLoginEvent to SimplePrefix v2.3.3" when it tries to lookup/retrieve my UUID on a computer with no internet i.e. offline-mode (which of course fails).

    still not understanding. if it helps any, i'll tell u what i wanna do and maybe u can explain it further.
    so im gonna have people donate to get a certain prefix cuz i have a set list of prefixes i wanna sell. say one person donated $1 which is the price of the prefix [Princess]. then they donated another $1 for the prefix [creeping]. is there any way they can get the permission to have that certain prefix so they dont have to donate to get it again?
    EX: simpleprefix.prefix.princess
    I dont wanna have to give them the permission to edit their own.

    @SatansDaughter66: Go

    That's exactly the way this plugin works. Please read this page, and the Configuration page to learn about how to use Simple Prefix. If you still don't understand, then ask here again.

    @Rise8647: Go

    Yes, that's a bug. Until it's fixed, you can set the suffix from the config file instead.
