    Hello Everyone,
    In this thread I will be teaching How to setup HeroChat. If you have any questions, suggestions, or confusion, feel free to send me a message or post on this thread!

    • Getting the plugins we need
    • Installing the plugin
    • Setting up Channels
    • Setting permissions
    Chapter 1, Getting the plugins we need
    You need the following plugins for HeroChat
    You have to be running of PermissionsEX, bPerms, GroupManager, PermissionsBukkit, zPermissions, or SimplyPerms for your permissions.

    Chapter 2, Installing the plugin
    Once you have downloaded Vault & HeroChat, just drag them into your plugins folder and reload your server.

    Chapter 3, Setting up Channels
    Go onto your server and type "/ch create <channel>" For example "/ch create Staff". Once you have done that it will automatically set the default settings for creating a new channel. Now all you have to do is go into your Plugins Folder --> HeroChat --> Channels --> Staff.yml or <channelname>.yml. Once you are inside one of the configs, you can customize the channel how you want. You can change the color, if you want a password ( which will not be needed if you use permissions for the channel(s) ), what you want the display message to be…

    Micro5 - Vault/Herochat support much more than just PEX, in fact a server can use any permission system they want with Herochat just fine, including the built-in bukkit permissions (if configured through the permissions.yml).

    you don't say how to do this, but I think the next biggest thing people ask about is prefixes/suffixes etc. For them to work people need a compatible plugin with Chat Node support (PEX, bPerms, iChat, mChatSuite, etc), and to setup prefixes/suffixes/color nodes inside of that plugin too.
