Simple Prefix


Simple Prefix Logo

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. Click "Metadata" above.

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!

As of version 2.3.1, this plugin uses an automatic updater to check if you are running the latest version, and if not, it downloads the latest version. To disable this please set "Auto-Update" to "false" in the config.yml file.

As of version 2.3.2, this plugin connects to "" when necessary to check for player UUIDs.

    Well, I can not provide support for another plugin. I know nothing about that plugin. However, I will say one thing; it looks to me like the problem might be because he placed a space inside a char instead of a string. He should use quotation marks instead of apostrophes, to make it a string.

    Caused by: java.util.UnknownFormatConversionException: Conversion = ' '

    Ah yes, that's caused by a small typo in the code. I was going to make an update to fix that, but then forgot about it. Thanks for reminding.

    @BaranCODE: Go

    A plugin with a chat variable was developed for me, but when I add the variable to SimplePrefix, I get the following error in console, and chat turns to the default layout for EssentialsChat.

    The person who made me the plugin said he has no idea why this is happening. Any fix that you know of?

    @BaranCODE: Go

    Ah, I see, lol. Well, what can you do, eh? :P

    I seem to be having an issue where when I use the /spr suffix command, it applies whatever I type as a prefix instead. I'm using version 2.3.3. Am I typing something wrong, or is it a config problem? Or perhaps something else?

    EDIT: I'm terribly sorry, I mixed those two up - I edited the post to reflect what I really intended to say. This is why I shouldn't ask for plugin support at 2 AM, lol.

    People rarely ask their questions or give their ideas using the ticket system; they find it easier to comment. I've found that trying to enforce the ticket system is futile, and decided I wouldn't bother doing so, this time. I just provide the support here, in the comments, as you can see below.

    Am I just totally blind, or am I missing where tickets are supposed to be posted? I can't see a link anywhere. :(

    @Luuko132: Go

    I don't believe that is possible with the current versions of Simple Prefix and McMMO. I may make an update to add this.

    @altair123ezio: Go

    Did you actually read the quote I pasted in my previous comment? Read it again.

    Basically, what it's saying is that if a person has permissions for more than one group (which I am sure your admins do), make sure the group that is more important is higher up in the config. What you did is write default first, and admin next, but it should be the opposite way around, in the config.
