    If Message Editor made customizing your server easier and better or you just appreciate my work, consider donating or leaving a positive review below. It really means a lot!

    There are a lot of messages that are either unmodifiable or are modifiable but only by installing additional plugins. Why would you do that? Now you can install Message Editor and actually edit both without installing more plugins.

    With Message Editor you can edit existing messages that require additional plugins (like join message). However, Message Editor also offers editing messages that are unmodifiable by default and requires you to for example override the whole feature (like /version command).

    You will find Message Editor very useful if there are messages you simply cannot edit but want to better customize your server.

    Message Editor supports:

    - Editing chat messages - since 1.0.0
    - Editing action bar messages - since 1.0.0
    - Editing kick/disconnect messages - since 1.1.0
    - Cancelling sending messages - since 1.2.4
    - Editing boss bar titles - since 1.3.0 (requires server version at least 1.9)
    - Triggering message editing only on specific positions - since 1.3.2
    - Editing message positions - since 1.4.0
    - (Not yet) Editing scoreboard titles
    - (Not yet) Editing scoreboard entries

    For server operators

    Download Message Editor from the link above. After that you should take a look at the usage section as it explains everything and should teach you how to use the plugin.

    Message Editor requires ProtocolLib to work.

    You can also add PlaceholderAPI and MVdWPlaceholderAPI if you want to use placeholders in edited messages.

      Thanks for the review. For issues and features you want added please use discussion thread or issue tracker. Right now I do not plan on adding any sort of GUI, purely because I can't think of a way to integrate this plugin with a GUI. While the way you currently edit messages isn't really admin-friendly, it provides the most flexibility and features.

    A long time ago I saw an alternative plugin, something like this, but with less functionality and usability. Thanks for the plugin.

    This plugin is a lifesaver! If your plugin doesn't have a way to disable a message, this plugin will definitely save your life. It's easy to understand, adding that it supports regex for detecting messages and PlaceHolderAPI for new-messages, It's almost like a must-have plugin. The developer is also easy to contact and very kind to help you in case you do not understand. +1 for jaq0bb. Highly recommended plugin!
