    Unfortunately, the time has come for me to retire from my position as Junior Moderator and pursue passions outside of Minecraft and SpigotMC. Read more @ For users of this resource, this means that AdvancedBans development will completely HALT forever or until it becomes a project of mine in the future. Thank you for your understanding.

    For support, issues or questions, add me on Discord @ mathhulk#5603 or come along to the Discord guild @ However, I also provide support on the AdvancedBan Discord guild.

    Clone advancedbans to a local file location. Navigate to the database.php file, which should be located at static\database.php. Open the file with a text editor, such as Notepad++ for desktop or Nano for command-line. Enter the credentials for your database in the appropriate place and continue.
    Code (PHP):
    define("DATABASE_HOST", "host");
    define("DATABASE_USER", "user");
    define("DATABASE_PASSWORD", "password");
    define("DATABASE_DATABASE", "database");
    Configuration options are also available for AdvancedBans. These options allow you to change how AdvancedBans functions. The configuration file for AdvancedBans is located at static\configuration.json. Once you have made changes to the configuration file, I would suggest placing the configuration file in a JSON validator to make sure you have not removed something you should not have.

    Please note that the version must be changed from stable to legacy or beta in order to use AdvancedBans with AdvancedBan version 1.2.5 or 2.1.6. Stable denotes use of AdvancedBan version 2.1.5.
    Code (json (Unknown Language)):
        "version": "stable",
        "mod_rewrite": false,
        "default": {
            "theme": "photon",
            "language": "en-US"
        "language": {
            "title": "AdvancedBans",
            "description": "Simple and sleek punishment panel for AdvancedBan."
        "player_count": {
            "enabled": true,
            "query": false,
            "host": "",
            "port": "25565"
        "navigation": {
            "contact": {
                "enabled": true,
                "link": ""
            "appeal": {
                "enabled": true,
                "link": ""

    Translating Advancedbans is simple. Languages are located in static\languages and all language files follow a simple format. To translate Advancedbans for yourself, create a new file for your language. For example, en-US.json is used for the English language used in the United States. Then, use the following template to make your translations.
    Code (json (Unknown Language)):
        "language": "English",
        "collection": {
            "punishments": "Punishments",
            "support": "Support",
            "contact": "Contact",
            "appeal": "Appeal",
            "credit": "Credit",
            "themes": "Themes",
            "default": "Default",
            "languages": "Languages",
            "players": "Players",
            "search": "Search",
            "copy": "Copy",
            "copied": "Copied",

            "expires": "Expires",
            "type": "Type",
            "status": "Status",
            "ban": "Ban",
            "temp_ban": "Temp. Ban",
            "ip_ban": "I.P. Ban",
            "mute": "Mute",
            "temp_mute": "Temp. Mute",
            "warning": "Warning",
            "temp_warning": "Temp. Warning",
            "kick": "Kick",
            "error_no_punishments": "No punishments could be listed on this page",
            "error_not_evaluated": "N/A"
    Consider translating AdvancedBans into a language you are fluent in. Create a pull request and I will merge the language into the master branch.

    Like translating AdvancedBans, theming AdvancedBans is also simple. However, AdvancedBans will always load the core files for Bootstrap and will follow a Bootstrap HTML structure. Themes are stored in static\themes and the following is an example of the file structure for a theme.
    Code (Text):
    themes /
    \ - photon /
        | - css /
            \ - photon.css
        | - img
        | - js
        \ - configuration.json
    Static stylesheets and scripts should be placed in the appropriate css and js folders. As noted before, AdvancedBans will always load core Bootstrap files and jQuery before custom theme stylesheets and scripts.

    The configuration.json file for your theme should follow this template.
    Code (json (Unknown Language)):
        "theme": "Photon",
        "creator": "mathhulk"
    To change the icons for AdvancedBans, replace the icon files located in static\resources\images and static\resources\images\icons and the favicon.ico file using a tool like

      I believe I fixed the issue regarding active/inactive punishments recently. You might want to download a new ZIP from the GitHub repository.

      Unfortunately, development on AdvancedBans has stopped indefinitely. More information can be found in the heading of the resource description.

    While still in beta phase, it looks great out of the box (granted you installed it correctly). Amazing Support turn-around and changes are being pushed out often to resolve any issues found, or to add more features.
