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!

    I was wondering if you could implement your plugin to work with Essentials /list? I recently switched to this plugin, and it's very nice. If you could implement /list coverage, this would be a perfect plugin. :)

    I know it has been fixed for Factions, but will there be a fix for Herochat? Or is there already some kind of fixe I missed?

    If Herochat is the problem, is there a good replacement I can find?

    Could you make it possible to add/remove prefix from console? Somehow I'm not able to do it from there, I want to link it to buy-able prefixes :)
