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.

Read the Configuration page for instructions on how to use the plugin.


  • 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!

Note about Offline Mode:

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

As of version 2.3.1, this plugin uses an automatic updater to check if you are running the latest version, and if not, it downloads the latest version. To disable this please set "Auto-Update" to "false" in the config.yml file.

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

    For me it still works on CraftBukkit 1.7.2-R0.2. However, as this project is marked as inactive, don't expect any support.

    Bukkit is essentially dead. Spigot will be updated to 1.8. Sponge is being cooked up. Terrain Control, BO3Tools and BetterEnderChest will all be usable on both Sponge (may only be on the Forge variant of Sponge) and Spigot 1.8.

    @Stereus: Go

    It was made to work with superperm plugins. I use PermissionsEx and it works fine. But to ensure safety, In the EP config file with all the ranks, just make sure that the highest priority is at the top. Like: Group: "Owner"(making it up), "Staff", "VIP", "default". Also remember that you have to completely restart the server for it to take action. I was frustrated with it, thinking it wasn't working.

    Hi there. I am strongly thinking about implementing this plugin into my server. Would this work fine along side PEX (PermissionsEx) group/permission manager plugin. Please excuse myself If this question has been answered previously. Just thought I'd check.

    Is there any posibbility that you will add support for MC 1.2.5 in the newer versions of your plugin again? Every version of your Plugin with multiprefix support is tryed didn't work on Tekkit Classic. And the 2 versions for MC 1.2.5 that did work had no multiprefix support.

    Great plugin, I'm using it on my server..... But there is a problem, the time format shows my computer time, I would like to suggest an idea. Could you add an option in the config to change the timezone or something like that, if it's possible.
