Common Problems and Solutions

Below are a series of problems I see frequently come up from users, and their solutions.


How do I disable lightning or explosions?

You have granted yourself (or your group) the permission node(s) for the(se) effect(s). Don't grant them, or negate them if you're granting a parent node.

When I leave, there's no quit message

You have granted yourself the vanish.silentquit node. This node disables all quit messages on you when you leave. Don't grant it or negate it if you're granting a parent node.

I don't show up on dynmap! (With the dynmap hook enabled)

You have granted yourself the vanish.hooks.dynmap.alwayshidden node. Don't grant it or negate it if you're granting a parent node.

How do I negate a permission node?

Check your permission plugin's documentation. It's slightly different for each one. Important warning, in PermissionsEx negation has to come first in the list.


I don't use a permissions plugin

That's fine! By default, ops get a very narrow range of permissions, but you can grant ops more permissions through permissions.yml.
