    Permissions 3.0
    Rcjrrcjr has been working quite hard on this upgrade to Permissions. However, it currently still suffers from a number of bugs. The most important of these which directly affects HeroChat is the non-functioning of prefixes and suffixes. There are less-than-pretty workarounds, but I'm refraining from fully supporting an update until Permissions 3.1 is released which should include a number of significant bug fixes. When this does occur, however, I have a build ready for you guys that should work. You can download it here. Again, I highly suggest not using this until Permissions 3.1 is released unless you really don't care about prefixes and such.

    See you when I get back!

    Is your config resetting when you make changes?
    If you make changes to the config while the server is running, you need to use the /ch reload command to make the changes stick. I wish this message wasn't necessary, but people only seem to read things in big, bold, red text (if at all).

    Have a problem? a feature request? Go here.
    HeroChat now has its very own redmine found here. If you have an issue or would like to suggest a new feature, I urge you to file it via redmine. I will be checking this much more often than this thread from here on out.

    Show your thanks! Maintaining plugins like HeroChat is very nearly a full time job. If you enjoy my plugins and appreciate the support I provide, then please consider providing some support of your own. Donating even a tiny amount keeps me motivated and makes me feel loved so go ahead and donate!

    Thats correct. Cause you did not read any of the replies that is on this page. If you read it, you would know to NOT USE the download link, but go to:
    http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/herochat/

    There already is. Please re-read the replies on this page.

    Read: http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/herochat/ and look at the herochat.autojoin.<channel> permission node.

    Can i get some help please? I made a message but no one responded:
    Currently I have 2 channels: Global and Staff.
    What I am wanting to do is have all normal players join and focus on Global only, so they can only chat in that channel. For staff, I want them to join Global and Staff on login, so they can see both chats, but focus on global, but can change focus to staff.

    I have tried many ways can can;t seem to get it working, can someone help me with the permissions please? They are a bit confusing

    herochat.force.join.<channel>​
    forces a player to join a channel on every login​


    That is what you need to give.

    http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/herochat
    censors: ['censoreword,censoreword2']

    It replaces it with *.

    Sanzennin

    Thanks, but I know it should be able to replace them with custom words too... Don't want the chat full of ***

    So would it be ['cencor;replacement,cencor2;replacement2'] ?
