Info Guide

Version: 2.4

If you would like to see this in action, logon to our Minecraft server at:


InfoGuide is designed to be a resource for players to go to find information about about the particular server that they are playing on. Instead of having to go back and forth between the website or looking at the Wiki's for plugin command line information, Server Administrators can use this plugin and post that crucial information into Guides that players can look at when ever they need information.

This plug allows an administrator to Add/Edit/Delete guides in real-time without having to stop/start the server to push new information out to all of your users. Server Administrators also have the ability to cut and copy information directly in the .yml files that this plugin creates for its guides.

How to Use?

Currently once you install the InfoGuide plugin into your servers plugin directory it will automatically appear when a user logs in. If they close it and wish to see it later you can press F12 to view the guides. This option is configurable in the Spoutcraft/client Controls > Keybind section.

Now With Color Support!!. You can use the color codes in the text fields by using #4 Red. It will accept all the possible color & formatting codes.


With the release of version 2.4 we added the ability to call up a specific guide via a command. Example:

/InfoGuide Starter Guide for Newbies

This will open up the infoguide interface with the "Starter Guide for Newbies" being automatically loaded.

Text Formatting:

  • BLACK = #0
  • DARK_BLUE = #1
  • DARK_GREEN = #2
  • DARK_AQUA = #3
  • DARK_RED = #4
  • DARK_PURPLE = #5
  • GOLD = #6
  • GRAY = #7
  • DARK_GRAY = #8
  • BLUE = #9
  • GREEN = #a
  • AQUA = #b
  • RED = #c
  • YELLOW = #e
  • WHITE = #f
  • MAGIC Random Code = #k
  • BOLD = #l
  • UNDERLINE = #n
  • ITALIC = #o
  • RESET to Default = #r

    From what I've experienced on Almura, it appears to still work, surprisingly. Dockter must have designed this very well, for it to have lasted this long without needing an update.
