    Could you please update this plugin?

    • Messages to be only viewed by certain permission groups.
    • Don't spam the console when no one is online.

    @RedFalKon, will you add MySQL-support? Would be awesome if it always reads from a DB-table.

    I think I know what you mean by line breaks but I may be wrong :confused: If i'm right to split a line you type $n for new line
    e.g :
    msg=This message is a test message$n
    I will make more messages later!

    that should look like :
    This is a test message
    I will make more messages later!

    The /reloadmsg does work, it is a little bugged. I switched over to scheduleannounce2, it is exactly the same as this one.

    Hi !
    I'm french and I try to put accent in vowel, like : présentation
    I try the codes : \u00e9 but doesn't work. I try to encode in UTF-8 (sans BOM) doesn't work.

    Do you know which code I have to put in the .yml ?

    Still wondering; why you might ask? Because I run most my serverplugins via database and would also be able to create a smooth webpage that edits, adds or removes messages.
  20. Can you make this open source?
