    Hello all,

    This is a problem I've been having for a long time, but for some reason I never bothered to ask about it.

    Basically, I want to remove ranks from the player list when you press the "tab" key. Since my server ranks are too long to fit in the player list, I decided to remove it all together and make it so that the list just shows the original IGNs.

    Every time I join the server, the player list only displays the IGN, which is what I want. But when I say something in chat, the list updates and includes my rank as well. I tried editing the Essentials config to prevent this, but no matter what I do, nothing changes.

    Code:
    # Disable this if you have any other plugin, that modifies the displayname of a user.
    change-displayname: true
    
    # When this option is enabled, the (tab) player list will be updated with the displayname.
    # The value of change-displayname (above) has to be true.
    change-playerlist: false
    
    # When EssentialsChat.jar isn't used, force essentials to add the prefix and suffix from permission plugins to displayname.
    # This setting is ignored if EssentialsChat.jar is used, and defaults to 'true'.
    # The value of change-displayname (above) has to be true.
    # Do not edit this setting unless you know what you are doing!
    add-prefix-suffix: true
    
    I want the list to look like this (ignore the [Citizen]):

    [​IMG]

    What it currently looks like:

    I use PEX to set up prefixes and use Essentials to display them, if it helps.

    Thanks!

    Since you are using Essentials, there is an option in the Essentials config which add prefixes and suffixes to the tab list
    Code:
    # Disable this if you have any other plugin, that modifies the displayname of a user.
    change-displayname: true
    
    # When this option is enabled, the (tab) player list will be updated with the displayname.
    # The value of change-displayname (above) has to be true.
    change-playerlist: false <-- Keep this at false
    
    # When EssentialsChat.jar isn't used, force essentials to add the prefix and suffix from permission plugins to displayname.
    # This setting is ignored if EssentialsChat.jar is used, and defaults to 'true'.
    # The value of change-displayname (above) has to be true.
    # Do not edit this setting unless you know what you are doing!
    add-prefix-suffix: true <-- Set this to false or add a # in-front of this option
    
    If this is set to true in your config, simply set it to false

    Doing that removes prefixes from the chat as well, and I only want it removed from the tab list... Any other way?

    What does this portion look like in your config file, with the changes mentioned above? Compare them with the code block i have listed below.
    Code:
    # Disable this if you have any other plugin, that modifies the displayname of a user.
    change-displayname: false
    
    # When this option is enabled, the (tab) player list will be updated with the displayname.
    # The value of change-displayname (above) has to be true.
    change-playerlist: false
    
    # When EssentialsChat.jar isn't used, force essentials to add the prefix and suffix from permission plugins to displayname.
    # This setting is ignored if EssentialsChat.jar is used, and defaults to 'true'.
    # The value of change-displayname (above) has to be true.
    # Do not edit this setting unless you know what you are doing!
    add-prefix-suffix: false
    
    READ BELOW HERE!
    
    "change-displayname: false" Should be/stay false
    "change-playerlist: false" Should be/stay false
    "add-prefix-suffix: false" <-- Should be/stay false
    If this doesnt solve your issue, then essentials may not be the problematic plugin, it may be a different chat plugin you may have installed

    Doing this (what I have right now)

    Code:
    # Disable this if you have any other plugin, that modifies the displayname of a user.
    change-displayname: true
    
    # When this option is enabled, the (tab) player list will be updated with the displayname.
    # The value of change-displayname (above) has to be true.
    change-playerlist: false
    # When EssentialsChat.jar isn't used, force essentials to add the prefix and suffix from permission plugins to displayname.
    # This setting is ignored if EssentialsChat.jar is used, and defaults to 'true'.
    # The value of change-displayname (above) has to be true.
    # Do not edit this setting unless you know what you are doing!
    add-prefix-suffix: false
    removes the prefix from the chat as well.

    I don't have any other chat plugin other than EssentialsChat, so I'm pretty sure Essentials is the problem here.

    Thanks!

    Try changing this portion
    Code:
    # When EssentialsChat.jar isn't used, force essentials to add the prefix and suffix from permission plugins to displayname.
    # This setting is ignored if EssentialsChat.jar is used, and defaults to 'true'.
    # The value of change-displayname (above) has to be true.
    # Do not edit this setting unless you know what you are doing!
    add-prefix-suffix: false
    
    Change this ^ to true

    That basically brings me back to where I started. My prefix is displayed on the player list.

    If your refering to the Server ip, I don't need the unnecessary traffic that posting it on BukkitDev might create

    If you refering to the pictures, i tried multiple dropbox links in hopes of it working, but nothing worked

    And bukkit has this "upload a file" button.

    Ok so in pex choose a rank that you want to add a prefix too, and add the "prefix:" value if you haven't already.
    Code:
    groups:
      customrank:
        options:
          prefix: '[CustomPrefix]'
        permissions:
        - modifyworld.*

    Can i see your Pex config (permissions.yml), at least for the rank you want to add the prefix too?

    I doubt PEX is the problem though. I got the permissions, prefixes, etc all setup. I just want the prefix to not show in the tab player list. @FrostDevStudios

    @timtower Yes, I do.
