Dynamic Effect Whitelist

Dynamic Effect Whitelist

This is a simple whitelist mod using MySQL/HTTP/File. To add users ingame to the whitelist permissionsBukkit is required (included in bukkit), you also need to use the File or MySQL mode. The plugin can run without any changes to the config, if you want it simple or you can edit the config to personalize the disconnect message etc.

The whitelist uses PluginMetrics which means it will send server info (plugin version, number of players on the server, server version, server location (country)), to PluginMetrics server (http://mcstats.org/plugin/DynamicEffectWhitelist) so I can get plugin usage. It can be turned off in PluginMetrics config (plugins/PluginMetrics/config.yml), but it's recommended to let it be on, so I can see the usage.

If a new minecraft version has recently been released then try the plugin instead of asking if it works. Before reporting a bug, check so you have the latest version and check the changelog

Version 1.5.2

  • All debug messages are now shown with the prefix [DEWhitelist-debug]
  • No longer prints entire whitelist in debug mode, instead it prints the number of players in the whitelist.
  • Checks if other plugin has already disallowed the player and if so it lets the other plugin handle the event.
  • In debug mode it now prints if another plugin has handled the join event.

Version 1.5.1

  • Quick fix for the refresh timer which didn't work.

Version 1.5.0

  • /whitelist <on/off> added - Can turn on/off the whitelist on the run
  • Print connection fails should be fixed and should no longer print in console nor to players multiple times.
  • debug option moved from General.debug to Other.debug
  • Option in the config to set which mode the whitelist should be at startup (on or off)
  • PluginMetrics added, sends anonymous stats (player count, bukkit version, plugin version), can be turned off in the pluginMetrics config (plugins/PluginMetrics/config.yml)
