    Nice :D finally a plugin that i don't need a massive chat plugin to use prefixed with permissions

    Indeed, I would like to replace iChat with this but I want to have the source code so I can change a thing or two.

    Is that possible? Thanks <3

    @ichingpow I wouldn't mind releasing the source, I'm just curious as to what you'd like to change.

    For my server, I would like to simply have "playername:" coloured and no actually prefix except for the invisible &4 or w/e.

    @ichingpow If you just want to change their colour, you can, just by entering &4 as the prefix. If you wanted to change the default name display from "<playername>" to "playername:" that would require an edit. I'll add up the source in a little while.

    And that's why I wanted the source code...

    @ichingpow Source is now inside the jar file :)

    This plugin will interfere with any other chat plugins, as well as cause duplicate messages with plugins such as McMMO which operate in the same way for Party/Admin chat, as it doesn't check if the chat event is cancelled, and implements its own broadcast instead of implementing prefixes as it should.

    @Flabaliki Some recommendations:
    Don't suppress deprecation warnings, they're there because there is a better option
    Check to make sure the chat event isn't cancelled before you do anything, with the change I'm suggesting it will no longer show duplicate messages, but it's more efficient.
    Instead of using println, broadcastMessage, and cancelling the event, use:
    String dispName = prefix + "&f<" + player.getName() + ">" + suffix + "&f ";
    player.setDisplayName(dispName.replaceAll("(&([a-f0-9]))", "\u00A7$2"))
    which will allow it to work with other plugins that don't cancel the chat event themselves and/or change the chat format, it also replaces the call to chatColours with a regex, which is more efficient.

    @Drakia Thanks for the advice, I didn't know about displayname. The only thing that bothered me was that if I use displayname it puts the prefix inside of the <> so it ends up as: <prefix name suffix> rather than: prefix<name>suffix. Any suggestions?

    Also thanks for the little replace code for colours, makes it much easier, I didn't know how to make it any shorter than what it was.

    @ichingpow Not for me :\. I'll add a direct link, you may just be getting stuck at the click counter.

    EDIT: Added the direct link.

    @Flabaliki and @Drakia I took the recommendations of you and here is the result, however getGroupPrefix is of course deprecated, do you know an alternative?

            public void onPlayerChat(PlayerChatEvent event) {
                String user = event.getPlayer().getName();
                String world = event.getPlayer().getWorld().getName();
                Player player = event.getPlayer();
                String[] sArray = permissionHandler.getGroups(world, user);
                String prefix = permissionHandler.getGroupPrefix(world, sArray[0]);
                String dispName = prefix + user + "&f";

    @ichingpow You do not need the line: System.out.println(prefix); That was a test line I put in there, forgot to take it out it seams.

    Also, yes, that's why I had the suppress warnings originally, but I took it out. As far as I could see, by looking at the plugin handler java for Permissions there didn't appear to be another way to get prefixes or suffixes. That way works, for now at least.

    Edit: You could also easily omit the user variable. I changed mine to use: Player player = event.getPlayer(); Then just changed the instances of user to player.getName()

    I uploaded my revised version 0.2 which includes the changes I made thanks to Drakia

    It said failed to find prefix. even though I have it perfectly set up with

    Whats wrong?

    Ohhh is this for the user prefix's?
    I was using group.
    Was that the problem?

    For a future improvement could you make it so the prefix goes to the groups and users?
    That would be awesome!

    @ichingpow I got the up-to-date methods, just replace getGroupPrefix and getGroupSuffix with getGroupRawPrefix and getGroupRawSuffix.

    @xFli3r I've updated the plugin, it will now get a users prefix, though, this will override any group prefixes they have. For more info, just read the short description in the post :)

    I don't understand how to use this. I'm using the "PermissionsBukkit" plugin, and am I supposed to do something in the configuration files there to enable this or what?
  20. Offline


    @Gilatar Currently this only works with the Permissions plugin, as stated in the thread. In the future I will add support for the bukkit permissions system.

    EDIT: @Gilatar I've update the plugin today, basically, it's very different to how it was before. It uses PermissionsBukkit to operate now, and has a config file where you set your prefixes and suffixes. Just check out the thread above which explains it all :)

    Thank you so much, this really makes it much easier! Much appreciated :D

    I'm still having problems but it just shows that I'm really dumb. I can't get the "Admin" prefix to show up, no matter what I do..
    Here's the permissions file:

    EDIT: Nvm, I got it >_>

    @Gilatar What was the problem out of curiosity? Was it just a typo or something? Anything I can make better?
  23. Offline


    @Flabaliki Just a problem on my end. I messed up the config file by removing a group that I was in so I guess that was the problem. I'm really clumsy when it comes to things like this.. :oops:

    How Do i do this? ik it seems simple but idk wut to do Lol

    @iwasnumber4 Firstly, just chuck the simpleprefix.jar into your plugins folder and start the server, then stop it again (or leave it running, doesn't particularly matter). Then go to your plugins folder and open up the /Simple Prefix/config.yml in there, by default you will see 3 groups, you can add as many more as you want, whatever you wish to call them. Just place your prefixes / suffixes inside of the '' then just save the file.

    Now, this is the part that includes permissions, I'd recommended using PermissionsBukkit as said in the post. The permissions nodes for the prefixes are very, very simple. If you called your group PurpleMonkeys the permissions node for it would be simpleprefix.PurpleMonkeys and then, whichever group or user has that permission will get that prefix.

    @svennp Is that Permissions 3.x or 2.x? If so, this only works with superperm based plugins like PermissionsBukkit
  28. Offline


    its Permissions 3.x
  29. Offline


    @svennp SimplePrefix[Permissions_3.x].jar Try this. It's an older version that uses Permissions 3.x. Please note, that you set the prefixes inside of your Permissions yml file, not the simpleprefix one.

    it works, but it removes the nicknames and i cant have coloured name, just the prefix
    and the editing method is alot better
