Simple Prefix


Simple Prefix Logo

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. Click "Metadata" above.

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.

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

    @rockjolt375: Go PEX wouldn't cause an issue, as permissions managers are required for it to work. HeroChat on the other hand most likely would do.

    @travja: Go I'm not sure why you are getting this issue, can you send me a PM with more details like what plugins you are running and that?

    @BlocklyCrafter: Go I've added it in the next version, should be up soon.

    I cant seem to get the prefixes/suffixes to show up at all. Everything seems to be working flawlessly, no errors and states "prefix set to xxx" but it shows nothing. I use PEX and Herochat...would either of these override the simple prefix?

    Survival: Legit | Residence | No-Grief | Portals | PvPToggle
    PvP: Factions | Raiding | Teleporting | Heroes (coming soon)

    How can I make the regular worldname go away? I set a nickname for a couple worlds and in chat it says [worldname] [nickname] [playersname] i want it to be just the nickname for the world showing not the actual name.
