    — Setup —
    It's very simple to setup and make MOTDEditor work how you want it. The setup instructions below is one example method how you can setup the plugin.

    Do you know how to handle and setup MOTDEditor? We are searching someone who can make a tutorial how to setup and handle this plugin! Please let me know if you want the tutorial video added to this page if you have done one.

    Basic setup:

    1. All messages are stored per group that means you can store multiple messages that will be randomly shown from the activated group. But first create the group with the command /motd new <new group> example usage: /motd new MyGroup.

    2. Now, the group you created is created and ready to be stored with your motd messages. Simply add a new motd message with the command /motd add <group> <new motd message> example usage: /motd add MyGroup Hellooo world, this is the motd message.

    3 a. New groups always contains a default message. That means you may remove it or other messages you don't want in your group with the command /motd remove <group> <id> example usage: /motd remove MyGroup 1.
    Don't know the message ID? Continue to step 3 b.

    3 b. You can view all messages in the group and also see the motd message IDs for each motd message with the command /motd list <group> example usage: /motd list MyGroup.

    4. Now, the group is ready to be used and being used in the serverlist display. And yes, that's very simply, just use the command /motd activate <group> example usage: /motd activate MyGroup.

    — IP saving —

    MOTDEditor gives you some variables, one of these is the %player% variable which returns the player's name.

    When the player connect, MOTDEditor checks if the player's IP adress and username has been stored. If it doesn't, it will be saved in the users.yml file.

    But why do MOTDEditor need to save the players IP adresses and usernames?
    When the player pings the server from their server-list, his name must be displayed if the server is using the %player% variable, but since it impossible to get the player's username in a easy way; MOTDEditor must save their IP adress and username to later return the name based on their IP.

    Please note that MOTDEditor only saves the IP adress and username inside the server.

    — Variables —
    In your messages you can also add variables to get the player name or other cool things. More variables will come soon!

    - %player%
    Returns the player's name. Only works if the player have joined before and if their IP adress and username has been stored before.
    - %online%
    Returns the amount of online players on the server.
    - %nl%
    Creates a new line. All text behind this variable will be on the second line.

    It is a great plugin! I have been looking around for motd plugins and most seem not to work ex. Sexy MOTD or Animated MOTD. Works with 1.8! My suggestions would be if you could add where it displays a different message every time you update/refresh the server list, Other than that it is a great plugin and would recommand

      That feature already exist. If you want multiple messages in one activated group, just enter /motd add <group> <your new motd message> and it will be added. Once a player refresh the serverlist, a random message will be shown :)

      MOTDEditor is not really created to manage server icons, just the message. But I may try to add the feature in later updates. Right now I'm trying to get the main feature to be as best as possible. But thanks for your review :)
