    I would like to give this plugin a try, currently im running a 1.14.4 - 1.17.1 server and the plugin does not load and says "Could not load plugins/chatcolor2-V1.11.jar" and than says unsupported API version 1.16. Am i missing something? Thanks! :)

      Hi, this is a mistake on my part - the jar will currently only work on 1.16 spigot jars and above - you can fix this by opening the jar file using WinRaR or similar, opening plugin.yml and changing 'api-version' to 1.13 :) This will be fixed in the next update.

    Very good plugin, recommend.
    I've been trying to give players permission to command "/chatcolor" or "/chatcolor help" but I can't.
    I use LuckPerms. I tried the command "/lp group default permission set chatcolor.use true" but it still doesn't work. Can you help me with this command?

    You answered my last quesion, but is there a command to add colors to peoples GUI? Im trying to make a shop using this plugin and I don't know which command to have to use.
    1. Sulphate
      Author's Response
      Thanks again for the review - GUIs are not player-specific; they are the same for everyone. If you give someone the permission:, they will only be able to use the blue colour in the GUI (other ones will appear unavailable). If you have any more questions or would like me to explain further, add me on Discord or send me a DM :) Sulphate#6969

    I am trying to add this plugin to my 1.17 server!
    Every /chatcolor command we try, we only get "/chatcolor [player/confirm] <color/default> [modifiers]" back.
    Is this because the plugin isnt updated? or is it anything we missed?

    Will you update it to 1.17 if that is the problem?:)
    1. Sulphate
      Author's Response
      Heya! Thanks for the review. The plugin is not currently supporting 1.17, this will be included in the next update :) I hope you'll check it out again then!

      EDIT: The plugin has been updated! :)

    Hey, permissions seem to be not working with luckperms. I gave the right permissions but normal players seem to not be able to use /chatcolor gui or /chatcolor itself.

      Heya, thanks for the review. Please make sure that players have the chatcolor.use permission node :)

    se puede poner los hex colours para los prefijos del permissionex, espero respuestas! :)

      Lo siento, pero ChatColor solo funciona con el chat, no con prefijos :(

      EDIT: Es posible, pero solo con prefijos O chat, no con ambos. Si utiliza PlaceholderAPI, deberías poder ChatColor con los prefijos (pero no estoy segura 100%)
