Solved Essentials Chat formatting not working

  1. I am new to the whole server thing and I am still learning. For the past couple days I have been periodically trying to format the chat but it is staying the same. The one successful thing I have is that I was able to turn off the red for op. The plugins I have installed are:
    Plugins (12): WorldEdit, GroupManagerX, Essentials, Vault, EssentialsSpawn, EssentialsChat, EssentialsGeoIP, MassiveCore, WorldGuard, EssentialsAntiBuild, Factions, EssentialsProtect
    The config for Essentials is: (shortened and posted as comment, shortened to global and chat. limit 2k characters)

    What have you done to get it to work?
    Include your essentials config in a paste bin and give us something to go on.
  3. I just messed a little bit with the chat settings to see if that will enable the prefixes from group manager and at least format the chat. Here is the pastebin:
    Thanks for the response :)

    You've added this and you aren't seeing this? correct?
    Code (Text):

        Default: '&7[Default]&r {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
        SuperAdmin: '&7[SuperAdmin]&r {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
        Owner: '&7[Owner]&r {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
        Builder: '&7[Builder]&r {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
        ModeratorTrainee: '&7[ModTrainee]&r {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
        Moderator: '&7[Mod]&r {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
        Deluxe: '&7[Deluxe]&r {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
        Premium: '&7[Premium]&r {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
        Coowner: '&7[Co-Owner]&r {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
    This would look like [Rank] Yourname: Message here
  5. I do understand what it would look like but as I chat it does not show the way that it is designed to.

  6. Its because Factions is overriding it. Disable Factions chat formatting in its instances.json
  7. But yes you are right. I am not seeing that
  8. Okay, thanks I will try that.
  9. Do you mind telling the location of that file? Sorry if it is basic knowledge. I am learning and we all start somewhere.
  10. Nevermind, I found it and it fixed my problem. Thank you all for your responses :) Have a wonderful evening!
