    First off, love this plugin. Helps on my new server to no end.

    I'd like to throw my support behind this idea. We have 3 or 4 different groups on our server, each with their own set of commands.

    Do you have any wishes on how to set if a line should be sent to only some people or to everyone?
  6. Offline


    yes, by groupname...

            line1: '&!R--------------------- /HELP 1/2 ---------------------'
            line2: '&!R/help &!w#  &!W-  Views help page &!w#'
            line1: '&!R--------------------- /HELP 2/2 ---------------------'
            line2: '&!R/kit  &!W-  Obtains the specified kit or views all available kits'
            line1: '&!R--------------------- /HELP 1/2 ---------------------'
            line2: '&!R/help &!w#  &!W-  Views help page &!w#'
            line1: '&!R--------------------- /HELP 2/2 ---------------------'
            line2: '&!R/kit  &!W-  Obtains the specified kit or views all available kits'

    That would mean, that you have to write the complete list maybe twice only to add 1 or 2 things to the Admins ;)
    But if you want it like this.
    I will add it ;)
    Shouldn't take too long to make.

    Thanks for this idea.

    Can you make based on actual group name rather than permission? We have a moderator group which sits between our normal users and administrators and they have different commands.

    As for copying and pasting all the lines, that doesn't bother me and it seems like the best way to do it.

    I have a problem. If I'm typing "/help", plugin shows first page from HelpLines[Admin], it's good. But if I'm typing "/help 2" (or any other page), plugin shows me pages from HelpLines[Default].

    What I'm doing wrong? :)

    That won't work.
    Because everybody can create their own groups with their own name.
    So you can't make the Plugin Group-Name-Based.

    @GT-Rustik: I'll check that.

    @GT-Rustik: Bug should be fixed now :)
    Thanks for posting that.

    Is the sourcecode public? Do you mind if someone forks it?
  12. Offline


    Yes, Thank You! And now this plugin is awesome ^^.

    Hm.. I'm noticed one thing. If I'm typing "/help", plugin shows page1, its ok. But "/help 1" shows me page2, "/help 2" shows page3. Is it bug or feature? ;)

    I think it's even useful - for example, I can set page1 as main help page (which call by simple "/help", where users can choose categories, located in next pages. And access for them - "/help 1" for category1 (page2), "/help 2" for category2 (page3) etc - in my opinion it is logical and understandable for user :).

    Maybe make this feature like an option in config-file? Or add page0.

    I really love this plugin :)
    Good job!
    But why can't I configure custom help lines like this:

                - 'SimpleHelp.staff'

    Is that possible?

    It seems strange you can't check what group the user belongs to and then check to see if a group of help commands exists for that and if not, display the default.

    But then again, I don't know Java programming. Thanks anyway. I will still use your plugin. Maybe one day we can figure it out.

    Suggestion: Ability to create named help pages. Instead of (or in addition to) numbered pages, you could name custom pages for example: "/help Craftbook" etc. Wouldnt think it would be that different programming than numbered pages except for the strings.

    Hmm Microsoft would say "It's not a bug, it's a feature" But if i am seriouss, it shouldn't be like that ;)
    I would say that bug is new since latest Version. Will release a new one in a few minutes.

    Permissions is created to let the admins freely decide, how to set the permissions and stuff.
    You can also choose your own name for the Groups.
    I have no real idea, how to check for every group, which name it has and then check the permission for it.

    Will see, if i can add this in the future :)
    But maybe it will be an optional feature.

    This is not possible, because there is only one permissions node and that's SimpleHelp.admin ;)

    But hey, when i use simplehelp.default its the default and simplehelp.admin its another, so there is no way of making it for example simplehelp.boro to show boro's help lines :?
  21. Offline


    I know.
    You can only use
    That is for the adminlist of help.

    If you want a group to see only the basic/default help you simply leave out the permission node.
    You can't define your own List -> HelpLines[Boro]
  22. not working
    An internal error occurred while attempting to perform this command
    when i write /help or /reloadhelp

    i got the .jar in my plugins and it wont seem to work

    Hey Chewing-Gumm,

    your plugin inspired me to create my own Help-System plugin, which has some features I needed and SimpleHelp didn't provide. It may also be interesting for other readers of this thread, maybe even you.
    Let me know if it's ok to link to it from here.

  26. Offline


    Is there anything in detail, what you can post me?
    Like the console report when you try to use the commands??
    I really liked to help you.

    If you want to, you can post your link here.
    1) No Spam! You can post it once and it's enough i think ;)
    2) Why do you want to post it here?
  27. I got another working from ToastedJelly. Useful, easy to edit, works fine :)
    thank you anyways m8

    Thanks, but I don't want to spam your thread - I just felt some guys here that asked for some features should know about it, but I PMed them directly and that's it.

    Essentials seems to be overriding this! Why so?! I'm using build 803 and Essentials 2.2 and your current version. (Yes, 1.5.1)

    EDIT: Oops! I made a plugin typo. :s
