  1. Hey, so I'm currently making my own server and am having difficulty working out how to change the chat colour of my ranks. I am just attempting to set owner to have a message in red but this seems to be really odd for me now no matter what I try will work so if someone could just show me how to set this up for either of the two I would be so glad <3

    Pex -

    - Admin
    prefix: '&8[&cOwner&8]&6 '

    Essentials Chat -


    # If EssentialsChat is installed, this will define how far a player's voice travels, in blocks. Set to 0 to make all chat global.
    # Note that users with the "" permission will hear everything, regardless of this setting.
    # Users with can override this by prefixing text with an exclamation mark (!)
    # Or with can override this by prefixing text with a question mark (?)
    # You can add command costs for shout/question by adding chat-shout and chat-question to the command costs section."
    radius: 0

    # Chat formatting can be done in two ways, you can either define a standard format for all chat
    # Or you can give a group specific chat format, to give some extra variation.
    # If set to the default chat format which "should" be compatible with ichat.
    # For more information of chat formatting, check out the wiki:

    format: '{DISPLAYNAME}&f: {MESSAGE}'
    #format: '&7[{GROUP}]&f {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&f {MESSAGE}'

    # Admins: '{WORLDNAME} &c[{GROUP}]&f {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&c {MESSAGE}'

    # If your using group formats make sure to remove the '#' to allow the setting to be read.

  2. In the format in essentials put &c before the {MESSAGE}

    I recommend installing a chat colour plugin, simple and done.
  4. Like what I'm using Spigot 1.7-1.8

    Did you try reload essentials by doing /essentials reload ?
  8. Okay thanks I guess I'll just have to try out in the morning it's too late for me (00:12am)
  9. Yes I did /reload & I even restarted when that didn't work

    Ok, And same here yet im still up walking around the house lmao, If it doesn't work in the morning join the discord or make a comment on this thread again, :)
  11. You can make a different chat format for each group, under the default chat format you'll see a commented Admin: [chat format]. Uncomment it and set the name (Admin) to your PEX group name, after that edit the chat format to your liking and you should be good. If you want more custom chat format for another group , just copy paste the same text and paste it under the last one (edit it again etc.) :)
  12. If that never works out You can use this plugin… ChatEx.
  13. Code (Text):
    try this, this should work as it works perfectly for me
  14. Guys, it's fine I got someone to make me a custom plugin, but thanks for all the help <3
