    I have been having no luck getting a custom help comand to work for my server. When ever I type /help or /help2 I just get the default list of commands

    I am running build # 432 I believe and the latest version of MC. The only plugins I have is Zenexer's collection of essential plugins V 225 and permissions V 2.1

    The earth2me site says to "If you place a help.txt into the Essentials folder then help will use this as the help menu instead of the default one."

    I have tried that and i have left the txt blank and tried putting a list of commands in it and neither one worked I just keep getting default commands list even though all the commands from the plugging work except for set home and set spawn etc

    Any clues on what I am doing wrong or what I can do to fix this problem so my other admins don't half to ask me so many questions

    make sure you put help.txt in the Essentials folder and not just in the plugins folder. this worked for me just now.

    I just tested a server build # 432 with the plugins you mentioned and the custom help file worked for me.

    I placed the "help.txt" file in the "plugins/Essentials" folder and /help, /help 2, etc. showed the text
    that I placed in the "help.txt" file.

    Was there some kind of specific format that you use in the help txt?

    As far as I could tell there wasn't a pre-defined format. It will just chuck as much as it can on one page before it throws the rest onto subsequent pages.

    If it helps this is what my help.txt has. It has been formatted to making adjusting each groups commands easier in the future and not to fit pages or whatever but you could go that way if you feel that would be better:
