    Overview:
    This plugin overrides the /help command to allow a two tiered /help file that is fully customizable from a help.txt file.

    If a user types "/help" they will see something like the following:

    [​IMG]

    and then if they used "/help server" they would see this:

    [​IMG]

    Usage:

    The help.txt file is laid out like follows:
    Code:
    [Server, <Page> - Server Commands]
    /help, <Page> - Shows a list of commands. 7 per page.
    /playerlist
    /kit, [Kit] - Gives a kit. To get a list of kits type /kit
    /motd, - Displays the MOTD
    
    #add an extra text line and blank line to help page
    [;Some extra help text]
    [;]
    
    [Position, <Page> - Commands for movement:mods]
    ;Commands for movement:
    /spawn, - Teleports you to spawn
    /home, - Teleports you home
    /sethome, - Sets your home
    /listwarps, - Gives a list of available warps
    /warp, [Warp] - Warps to the specified warp.
    /getpos, - Displays your current position.
    /compass, - Gives you a compass reading.
    Define your own help message by using the format:
    /command, your help message

    Lines that start with the ; character will just be added as plain text without checking for a command. This can also be used to add blank lines.


    In the config above the page server will be visible to the default user group and the page position will be visible to the group mods. More than one group can be added by separating the group names with a comma like so: vip,mods,admins


    Installation

    Copy the HelpPages.jar to the plugins directory reload your plugins. It will create all the needed files the first time it runs. You can then edit your plugins/HelpPages/help.txt file to suit your server.

    If you don't specify it sets it as default.
    so:
    Code:
    [Warp, <Page> - Warp Commands]
    really is:
    [Warp, <Page> - Warp Commands:Default]

    I am having the same problem as you have. Only admins can see the help pages and only those that are directly assigned to their group (Admins). I have set inheritance up (to Default) in permissions but I am still experiencing problems.

    At the moment, a regular user can't see ANY of the help pages. This started happening when the permissions were implemented into this plugin.

    Heck, I even tried copying the group Default, renaming the copy and making that one default instead but that didn't solve it either.

    can
    Can you post a snip of your groups.yml that shows the group name and inheritance as well as the index pages for your help file?

    I can confirm that the Default group help categories do not work. Tried :Default, :default and even :*

    Version 1.1 still works wonders for me (except for the permissions), I recommend using that instead for now.

    @Myrrdin and @SplenectomY

    That's odd. Are you guys all using Permissions 2.5? (My test server has GroupManager and everything tests fine.)

    This plugin uses Permissions 2.0 so you need to make sure that the conversion plugin is matching the version of your Permissions or GroupManager

    Myrrdin

    Conversion plugin? What?
    It says in the OP that this plugin supports 2.5 so I assumed it would work properly without the need for any extra plugins.

    I am using Permissions 2.5.4, not group manager.

    As far as I know it was working with 2.5.1 I'll look into it on my test server.

    Thanks! I'll try it out.

    Just so you know it does work on Permissions 2.5.4 but the inherit doesn't seem to be working so you need to add all the groups you want to be able to see the commands to the tag like this:
    Code:
    [Commands, <Page> - Position related Commands:Admins,Default,Moderator]
    /getpos, - Displays your current position.
    /compass, - Gives you a compass reading.
    /warp, [warp] - Sends you to [warp] or shows list if empty.
    /spawn, - Sends you to Spawn location.
    /home, - Sends you to your home.
    /sethome, - Sets your home to your current location.
    /tpaccept, - Accept teleportation request.
    /tpdeny, - Deny teleportation request.
    /back, - Returns you to your last position.
    
    So the only real problem at the moment is that inherit isn't working on permissions but you can still get it to work :).

    I already tried the thing above, didn't work for me :S I suppose I could give it yet another go though.

    Edit:
    This time it worked! I compared the old edited file to the new one and the only difference was the format, so I suppose I should thank you both. Thanks!

    Second Edit:
    It didn't work after all! I could see them all as an admin but regular users can't see them. I'm going to try something new, copying the Default group in my world.yml file and renaming the copy to something else + setting it as default.

    Third Edit:
    That didn't work either, hmm. I just tried adding some people from the default group to the default group manually in my world.yml file.
    Time will tell if it's working.

    I also noticed that when the plugin loads, it displays:
    HelpPages 1.2 Loaded: GroupManager detected
    Even though I don't have Groupmanager.

    Fourth Edit:
    Adding names to the list manually worked! If I manually add someone to the group Default it works as it should!
    The problem is that I need to add every single player.
    It's quite a long list.

    Fifth Edit:
    Scratch that again! If I set their group to Default, they could see every single help category even though I only added Default to 4/6.

    Reverting back to 1.1

    what about using a different default group or give groupmanager a try, i prefer it over permissions.

    @Jonbas I too would love color support.

    does the latest version of this plugin use a static download link, CraftBukkitUpToDate is awesome for staying uptodate but says it doesn't have a source for Helppages.


    Also is it possible to have sub pages of sub pages?
    I have my help file split into main catigoreies like; General, Items, Admin, WorldEdit
    but worldedit has a ton of commands so I wanted to split it into subcatigories like; Superpick, Moving, Selection with out these catagoires showing in the main help page.
    is this possible or could it be added in a future update

    Will this be updated to work with b556 ?
    I don't get any errors in console when I run it with b556 but when I type /help in-game it doesn't show any the categories I made in the help.txt

    I did set up the help.txt file properly as I had this working when I was on 440.

    it worked fine for me on b556, you might have to add groups to them. I had it set up where i thought if i set the default group to one it would show it to all the groups that inherit from that group but it didn't i had to declare every group that i wanted to be able to see that category.

    Thanks, I figured I would only have to list the default and it would use inheritance for the rest.

    okay so does this not work with premissions 2.5.5 phoenix because i cant get it to work and if it dosnt could you plz update it

    Jonbas

    Permissions 2.5.5 seems to not handle inheritance properly. It should still work, but you'll just have to manually specify the groups that will see each page like Seven50six6 has done above.

    I assume you're using permissions 2.5 It seems that the plugin doesn't handle inheritance properly, so unless you specify each group that you want to see a page in the index, it won't show up for everyone.
