Configuration/How to get started with SimpleBroadcast
At first you have to put the SimpleBroadcast.jar into your plugins folder. After a reload / a reboot a folder called "SimpleBroadcast" has been created automatically. In this folder there is the "config.yml". In this file, you can define which messages should be send to the chat, in which delay they should be broadcasted, if the plugin shall check for updates, ...

Hello I have a problem with most to all the chat plugins on my server including simple broadcast. There is always some sort of problem with the plugin such as with simple broadcast it only uses its default settings. With chatguard it is banning people for (even though i didnt tell it to do that) for saying anything at all! And finally with essentials chat it wont use the chat format I give it it only uses the default chat format. I just installed mods onto the server with cauldron and they stopped working but these plugins as far as I know were working with cauldron but without mods. If you can help it would be most appreciated thanks ;). Also the server is 1.7.10.
Mods on the Server: bibliocraft forbidden magic (thaumcraft addon) mantle (tinkers construct core mod) tinkers construct thaumcraft thaumic tinkerer (thaumcraft addon) backpacks mod magical crops
Chat Plugins: Essentials chat chatguard simple broadcast
I'm afraid this is not possible at the moment.
Since v1.8 the messages shouldn't get broadcasted twice in a row. Which version of the plugin are you using?
Great plugin but when I set the broadcast to random order, it sometimes repeats messages. Could you make it so that it broadcasts the whole list at random while skipping messages that were already sent in that list. So instead off: 1,3,2,4,3,3,1,5....... it would be: 1,3,4,2,5 and then it starts over. A bit hard to explain in English but I hope you get the idea:p
Can this plugin be set up to broadcast to all players, the result of the /worldborder get command?
I only get the result to appear in the console, when I enter the following in the config,yml:
messages: - '/worldborder get' - 'worldborder get'
The 1st - '/worldborder get' sends the result to the console, NOT to all players
The 2nd - 'worldborder get' Sends the following text to the client
[Broadcast] worldborder get
I would like the follow response sent to the client:
World border is currently 60000000 blocks wide
Could you provide the specific syntax required to produce the intended outcome?
Unfortunately I don't understand you. What exactly is your problem? Where've you got problems with downloading the plugin? Why do you have to do it again?
When i try download it makesme do it again -_-
I have been using this plugin for a year by now, it has been very usefull.
Thanks lots for keeping it updated, you're great !
This is an extremely simple plugin I'm afraid if you cant follow the very basic instructions, you really shouldn't be running a server. In fact I think it's probably the simplest plugin I have ever come across.
What exactly is unclear? Have you read the documentation on the website?
Can u do a tutorial on how to upload & download this pluggin
Awesome! Looking forward to per-world broadcasting. All other broadcasting plugins I've tried with that feature are extremely complicated/don't work.
For those of you who think this plugin is abandoned: It isn't! The status bar on the website just moved a little bit more to the right and I'm currently working on a nice and cool feature. :)
Please crate a ticket and attach as many information as possible (server.log/latest.log/..) to get help.
SB doesn't work for me up 1.8. Any ideas?

Please create a ticket so that I can have a look at your problem.
Why doesn't it change?!?!?!? I have went into the configs and changed the messages and I put ' in front and back, saved it, restarted my server and it keeps saying those default things in chat! Help!
It's currently not planned to support Cyrillic font. Maybe in an upcoming version.
Please create a ticket so that I can have a look at your problem.
Doesn't work... Every time I change the config and reload or restart the server, the plugin still broadcasts the sample messages with the old prefix, as if the config wasn't there. And though I installed the bossbar API, every time I try to enable bossbar, I only get "Please enter a valid number." in red. I'm using the newest 1.7.10 Spigot that can also be accessed from 1.8 by the way.
it doesn't work. and the letters come out to be hieroglyphs. Please help. I like this plugin. thank you
As long as it is UTF-8 compliant it should work. I've personally never tested it.
