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

    @Stereus: Go

    It was made to work with superperm plugins. I use PermissionsEx and it works fine. But to ensure safety, In the EP config file with all the ranks, just make sure that the highest priority is at the top. Like: Group: "Owner"(making it up), "Staff", "VIP", "default". Also remember that you have to completely restart the server for it to take action. I was frustrated with it, thinking it wasn't working.

    Hi there. I am strongly thinking about implementing this plugin into my server. Would this work fine along side PEX (PermissionsEx) group/permission manager plugin. Please excuse myself If this question has been answered previously. Just thought I'd check.

    Is there any posibbility that you will add support for MC 1.2.5 in the newer versions of your plugin again? Every version of your Plugin with multiprefix support is tryed didn't work on Tekkit Classic. And the 2 versions for MC 1.2.5 that did work had no multiprefix support.

    Great plugin, I'm using it on my server..... But there is a problem, the time format shows my computer time, I would like to suggest an idea. Could you add an option in the config to change the timezone or something like that, if it's possible.

    Extremely glitchy plugin. I own a server using GroupManager for my permissions, and haven't transferred to PEX yet. 1.)No commands work, I have OP and '*' permissions yet it still says insufficient perms 2.)Prefixes revert to default. No matter what permissions a user has, they still have the default prefix Please fix these very annoying glitches and *maybe* I'll use this plugin.

    Really love this plugin! I use it for donation ranks as I don't want to add them to a specific group because it's a Prison Server and they will want to keep playing in other blocks.

    Does anybody know why it doesn't work automatically when you set it up as a command to run when somebody buys a certain item/rank?

    I have tried Enjin and I am now using BuyCraft

    Hi, I was wondering if you could use Group Manager - Essentials with this plugin? Because I have set it up before with permissionsbukkit but since then I now use Group Manager please reply and tell me soon as I will need to be setting my permissions up. Thanks
