    SimpleJail - Jail those nasty players!
    Version: 2.0.3
    Requires: PEX, PermissionsBukkit, or Vault

    This plugin gives bare basic jail functionality. It allows you to set two points: the Jail point and the Unjail point. Then, when you jail a player, he/she will be teleported to the jail point and demoted to the Permissions group specified in config.yml. Unjail will re-promote the player and teleport back out of the jail, to the unjail point.

    • Super customizable
    • Use /setjail and /setunjail to easily set the two teleport locations
    • Set the group that jailed players will be demoted to in the config file
    • Players' initial groups are saved, so a normal jailed player will revert to a normal rank when unjailed, and a player with the VIP class will revert to the VIP class
    • Works with PEX, PermissionsBukkit, and Vault
    • Players in jail will respawn in jail
    • You can "tempjail" players who will be automatically unjailed after a set time
    • You can jail/unjail players even when they are offline
    Permissions Nodes:
    • simplejail.jail — Allows the use of /jail
    • simplejail.unjail — Allows the use of /unjail
    • simplejail.setjail — Allows the use of /setjail and /setunjail
    • simplejail.jailtime — Allows the use of /jailtime, which shows a players remaining tempjail time
    • simplejail.* — Allows all SimpleJail commands

    I have no idea why this is happening. The user names should not be case-sensitive. I can't really help you without understanding exactly what is going on, so next time this happens, could you tell me exactly what's in the jailed.yml file? Thanks.

    You didn't read the post three posts above you. This plugin changes users' Permissions group. You can revoke building privileges!

    What version of Permissions are you using? Also, what does it say in the console?

    I am getting a error where jail works fine, but I cant unjail players.

    I tried it on a guy called Crent

    All I get is the following in jailed.yml

    Oooh, I think I see the problem now. Gimme a little bit to update the plugin, I'll have it done soon.

    Okay, sorry about all that, Jadedwolf and Raqn, everything should work now. Just download the latest version.

    Good news: Unjailing works.

    Bad news: The rank is not reset on /unjail playername. This means my mods who I don't allow access to permissions cant really unjail people. Can you make it so the rank is reverted back to the rank it was before, OR just back to default.

    I think I know why you're having this problem. Make sure your Permissions are all in order (make sure everyone's not Jailed), then delete the SimpleJail jailed.yml file. Basically, reset everything. This should fix that issue.

    i dont know what it is but if i try to use any command it say its an unknown command help :(

    I can't use the /setunjail command even though I have all permissions. How do you fix this?

    Hey, had some suggestions:

    Could you have a multiple jail system? We want to use more than one cell... maybe make it an area selection for a jail point so only one player can be in a cell at a time. As for sending them there, just send them to the nearest empty cell :)

    Secondly, could you make it optionally command-free, using an item? so there would be two nodes:
    - SimpleJail.jail
    - SimpleJail.jailstick

    The first would work with commands, for admin use. The second, you must physically hit a player with an item (Slimeball, coz its sticky?) to send them to the nearest jail.

    can u add a jail time? So jail player for N sec, minutes, hours, days?
  12. Offline


    Your request has been fulfilled. Players in jail now respawn in jail.

    Some good ideas there; I think I'll look into implementing them.

    Quite possible, I'll look into that as well.

    here is a suggestion. My server uses Multivers and therefore there are many worlds. using your plug in, i can only jail those player who are in the world where the jail is present.

    you could modify it in a way which teleports the player to a world and then jail him/her there.

    are there cells

    Nice plugin, very handy. One small downside I found though, the factions plugin don't have a permission for using "/f home" to teleport to their faction home. So once a user is in a faction they can just use it, even if they don't have 'factions.participate' in permissions config. Do you think you might update your plugin to block it? Works fine disabling the other teleport commands such as /home and /spawn.

    It's a simple to use plugin that does what it needs.

    I wonder if it's possible to block players from typing the character "/" as the first character when it's sent before it is initiated as a command. It could replace the demote method that you use now.

    That would be sweet.

    for some reason when i jail people the rank doesn't go down to the set rank i made. I made a prisoner rank and added it to the config file. what is wrong?

    I'm getting a strange error when I try to enable SimpleJail.

    I am running cb860 now, but I get the same error on cb928.

    I notice the permission error, but I have a permissions plugin (PermissionsEx), is that a problem?

    Good point, I'll try and make this multiworld compatible.

    I'm not updating a plugin just to disable functionality another plugin has added. Sorry, take it up with the creator of Factions.

    In theory, yes, it's possible. But that's really not what this plugin's intended to do. Often times, switching Permissions groups does more than just disable commands; it can do things like change chat colors and turn on nobuild.

    Make sure you reload the server after you update the config file.

    This plugin requires Permissions 2 or 3. It looks to me like you don't have it.

    Yeah, this plugin is not compatible with PEX ATM. I will add it to my TODO list, but it's not super high priority. Sorry!

    @imjake9 What if they were both in place? Best security evar? :3

    Oh well, thanks anyways!

    Just wondering, but is it a file structure/format problem, or is it a problem with the plugins themselves?

    Because regardless of whether I change the "PermissionsEx" folder into "Permissions", I get this error:
    23:26:17 [INFO] [SimpleJail] ERROR: Permissions file not found.
    23:26:17 [INFO] [SimpleJail] SimpleJail v1.3 disabled.

    The config file is not auto-generating; how do I get it to?
    EDIT: Never mind, I just needed to restart my FTP connection to see it. Fantastic plugin!

    SECOND EDIT: Lol, I'm so stupid. I thought I'd test that everything was working by jailing myself. This worked great until I realized I no longer had permission to unjail myself. No one was online, so I was forced to restart the server and manually unjail myself. I fail.

    So, to prevent this from ever happening again, I have a suggestion: If someone is an OP, they should be able to unjail themselves, even if they don't have the SimpleJail.unjail node.

    (i.e. in your onCommand(), instead of
    if( (hasPermissions && permissionHandler.has(player, "SimpleJail.unjail"))) {
    //blah blah blah
    if( (hasPermissions && permissionHandler.has(player, "SimpleJail.unjail"))||player.isOp()) {
    //blah blah blah

    I s'pose; I might make it an option.

    It's a structure problem, and honestly, PEX is probably a better plugin. There's simply the fact that more people use Permissions than PEX, so I decided to support Permissions. Still, I think PEX support should actually be pretty easy; it has a better API.

    I'll make it an option, but you know, you could have just unjailed yourself from the console. :p It works too!

    Sounds awesome, thanks for the feedback. I really want to use this plugin, but I'm not willing to switch to Permissions (PEX is just too awesome), so I appreciate that you'll look into it.

    I was hoping to use this plugin as the "Jail" plugin has almost always spewed errors in my logs for no apparent reason, but no multi-world is a deal breaker. :/ Please add this soon. Hmm, seeing as how nether is now forced on us with 1.6+, how does everyone else use this plugin effectively?

    Hey I'm trying to get this plugin to work. The /jail command works, but people don't get thier rank set to the Jailed group I made.

    This plugin requires Permissions 2 or 3. It looks to me like you don't have it.

    I Do Have Permissions, I Downloaded It A Few Months Ago, Was There An Update ?

    Jake, can I ask you for a favor ? Can you teach me how to use SimpleJail and Permissions ?
    You see I am new to the bukkit plugins.

    thanks and good work
