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.

    @Flabaliki: Go Heres the stuff I would like:

    1. Factions tags support.
    2. Multiple ranks per group. This would allow people to make a donator rank on top of the normal rank.

    That's it :) Good luck updating!

    Compatibility with Factions. The Simple Prefix does not work with Factions, tested and confined. I need the feature soon so i can see Faction Tag's and other my group prefixes. Please respond as soon as possible D:

    This is the best chat plugin I've ever used, I don't think any features need to be changed. I'm just really looking forward to compatibility with the newest minecraft update. Keep up the good work!

    Ok, working on a new version right now. Can you please respond to this with the fixes that are needed and what features you want added or changed! It's hard to claw through comments and issues reported from the past couple of months, so please reply to this with fixes and changes you want!

    Cheers guys, update coming soon :D
