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

    Highly recommend this plugin.

    I'm a plugin coder myself, and I look at this source and find it quite legit.

    @XtimmyX: Go

    You have your config wrong.

    You don't need multiple "Groups" groups, and you dont need multiple "User" groups. You need one "Group" group, and one "User" group. You have multiple prefixes under the "Group" group,:

        prefix: '&4[Head-Admin]&f'
        suffix: ''
        prefix: '&4[Admin]&f'
        suffix: ''
        prefix: '&2[Head-Mod]&f'
        suffix: ''


    and the "User" group is used for USER only prefixes so you dont have to make a group for it. Example:

        prefix: '<prefix>'
        suffix: '<suffix>'
        prefix: '<prefix>'
        suffix: '<suffix>'

    Hope that helps.

    Here is my cfg:

      format: '<[prefix] [name] [suffix]> : '
      time: '[h:mm aa]'
        prefix: '&4[Head-Admin]&f'
        suffix: ''
        prefix: '&4[Admin]&f'
        suffix: ''
        prefix: '&2[Head-Mod]&f'
        suffix: ''
        prefix: '&2[Mod]&f'
        suffix: ''
        prefix: '&6[Co-Owner]&f'
        suffix: '&b'
        prefix: '&6[Owner]'
        suffix: '&6'
        prefix: '&8[Member]&f'
        suffix: ''
        prefix: '&c[OP Probation]&f'
        suffix: ''
        prefix: '&5[Helper]&f'
        suffix: ''

    Its edited, I got rid of the "User" group list, and I edited the Template and world groups.

    Simple prefix isnt exactly working with 1.3.1, so, i recommend to wait until he fixes it.

    The owner title is the only title that works. Here is the config:

    @Flabaliki: GoThank you for continuing to update this :) I just found it and I hope to get it working with factions. I am using groupmanager.

    is it possible for both a prefix and a suffix from two different perm nodes to be active at once?

    so if a players is a member of two groups, he gets prefix A from one and Suffix B from another?

    I'm not sure why all of a sudden things have stopped working in this plugin, specifically the compatibility with other plugins. It's probably a case of they've changed how they work. I'll have a look into Factions, PEX and ChatManager for those asking to see if I can get this to operate in a friendly way.

    First the 1.2.5 Version worked with PEX... But now with 1.3.1 Not anymore.. Can you fix this you think..?
