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

    When I change the config, the plugin throws a load of error, have I wrote it properly?

    Template: format: '<[prefix][name]> ' time: '[h:mm aa]' Worlds: world: nickname: '&e[World]&f' Group: example: prefix: '&a[Example]&f' suffix: '' User: m1k3y9292: prefix: '[Owner]' suffix: '' User: GypsyGirl99: prefix: '[Co-Owner]' suffix: '' User: D0SSY: prefix: '[Admin]' suffix: '' User: AlexioTheGiraffe: prefix: '[Trusted]' suffix: '' User: _silverbit_: prefix: '[Trusted]' suffix: '' User: Redjadster: prefix: '[Trusted]' suffix: ''

    odd :O Sorry for those of you who'm it didnt work for. It works flawlessly on my server after my plugin dev fixed it. I have no clue why it wouldnt be working for you guys. I'm using the very latest DEV build of bukkit, if your not, try doing so, but back up your server first. I'm also using latest build of factions (not that new dev build they have with all those changes tho)

    Screw the waiting! I paid my plugin dev 5 bucks to fix it for me, so here you guys go! It took him all but 5 minutes to change 1 thing haha, but i tested it on my server and works perfectly alongside factions :)

    Here you guys go, and as always, scan for virus's before trusting anyones files!

    NOTE: I take no credit for the creation of this plugin, i simply paid to get it fixed for us that want it for now until the plugin's creator shows up again.

    For now, it seems like we just have to turn the faction tags off :/
