    Place this in onEnable
    Code:
    if(!(new File(this.getDataFolder(), "config.yml")).exists()) {
      saveDefaultConfig();
    }
    
    And make sure the config.yml is in the root of your jar when you export.

    I never do that xD
    I do
    Code:java
    1. config.set(path, config.get(path, default value));
    2. config.save(configFile);

    saveDefaultConfig() will copy the config.yml from inside the jar as it is... if you don't have it and/or don't want that, you can use:
    Code:
    getConfig().addDefault("node.stuff", "default value");
    getConfig().addDefault("node.anothernode", "default value");
    //...etc
    getConfig().options().saveDefaults(true);
    saveConfig();
    That will create a config.yml with the default values and it will add new values to an existing config if you add them afterwards.
    But will overwrite any custom file format (comments and stuff)... you can only define a header comment if you want, see in the options() method, it's around there :p
    I suggest you read: http://wiki.bukkit.org/Introduction_to_the_New_Configuration

    Well, that'll overwrite stuff if not checked properly, so you could use addDefault()... but then you can't add comments before each node :}

    saveDefaultConfig() already checks for the file, you don't have to :p

    I threw that part in there so it won't print a warning if it already exists.
