Download (1.2.4 ready): v1.2


motd is a lightweight MOTD and basic command plugin for your minecraft server.
There are lots of 'basic commands' plugins around here, but most of them have lots of features you will never need - or they do not allow you to deactivate them easily. They often cause lag and make configuring your server a pain in the * because there is no documentation.

With motd I made a simple, yet powerful plugin for creating advanced, custom colored and formatted MOTDs, who lists and rules. If you do not have the time to always be around on your server, rtp and vtime can help you. Even if you decide to install permissions on your server, motd is ready for that change.


  • who
  • rtp [playername / yes]
  • vtime [dawn / day / evening / night]
  • ip
  • motd
  • rules

Permissions Nodes

  • motd.ip.use
  • motd.who.use
  • motd.rtp.yes
  • motd.rtp.request
  • motd.vtime.use
  • motd.rules.use
  • motd.motd.use
  • motd.edit
  • motd.reload
    note that motd.rtp.request includes motd.rtp.yes

    Okay thanks. Also, I don't think it's working with permissions bukkit.

    Yeah it fails retrieving the player object, since admin/console is not a valid player. MOTD is not really designed to be used by console.

    Great plugin, 2 things I would like to see tho. Group support, so only a certain group sees the motd, and the option to move the motd down, currently on my server when an admin logs in they get bombarded by plugin messages and shit and the motd is off the screen at the top, so unless they open chat and scroll up they wont see it. Any way to delay the motd a few seconds or have it show up under the list of players when you log in

    Yes, I am still monitoring this. I'll fix the plugin if it doesn't work with future versions.
