Simple Prefix


Simple Prefix Logo

Simple Prefix: Allows you to easily manage your chat with prefixes and suffixes.

This plugin uses prefixes and suffixes that are very easy to configure, inside of a yml config file. You apply prefixes and suffixes per user or group in the /Simple Prefix/config.yml file.

Alternatively, Simple Prefix can be configured to get the prefixes and suffixes from Vault supported chat plugins instead (PermissionsEx, bPermissions, etc.)

You can fully alter the chat format. 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 your prefixes and suffixes to work, however you want.


  • Uses permissions to apply prefixes and suffixes to selected users or groups.
  • Alternatively, can use prefixes and suffixes from plugins supported by Vault.
  • Formatting/color 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.
  • A prefix or suffix tier system (so that you can make multiple ranking ladders).
  • UUID support


  1. Place Simple Prefix.jar into your plugins folder
  2. Restart or reload your server
  3. Edit your config.yml (see here for info)
Please carefully read the Configuration page!

Could we get someone to make a new video that demonstrates what the plugin does, as well as how to set it up?

SimplePrefix may or may not work in offline mode. No support will be offered to offline mode servers

If you're having issues using Simple Prefix in offline mode, you may:

  • Either use online mode.
  • If you have to use offline mode because you're using bungeecord, and bungeecord is in online mode, that's okay too:

If you are using bungeecord, just make sure that:

  • In the Simple Prefix config, enable the "bungeecord" option
  • Make sure you're using Spigot
  • In your Spigot config.yml, enable the "bungeecord" option
  • In your Bungeecord config.yml, enable the "ip_forwarding" option, and make sure "online_mode" is enabled too

Upcoming Features:

  • MySQL support
  • Timezones

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

    I know, but it seems like that update has broken this plugin. (group prefixes only)

    Owner of MC-Simple Gaming! Hope to see you there :)

    You . .. . . You fiend, your plugin removed the Permissions Bukkit config that I spent HOURS WORKING ON, COPYING PERMS OVER AND OVER.
