Essentials Doesn't Work

    But there are no tabs when i check my config..
  2. When i put my config file in that yaml checker, it says

    Parsing Errors:
    Error: Element 'ops-name-color': This element is not expected. Expected is ( groups ). Probably around line: 1

    What is this? How to fix?
  3. You checked for GroupManager's yaml. You are meant to click 'other' from the drop down list.

    I'm telling you, there are tabs in your config file.
  4. Maulss

    No there aren't, because when i remove the config.yml and let it generate a new fresh one, Essentials still doesn't work :confused:
  5. Maulss

    When i remove the config and let it generate a new one, it works besides the chat format:

    Heres my config:

    The chat format is still <NAME> TEXT
    Even though i set it to be NAME&7: text
  6. What doesn't work, exactly? Can you give me a screenshot of what happens when you chat?
  7. Maulss

    When i chat, it displays this:

    <[Member]PotatoTears> hi

    instead of:

    [Member]PotatoTears&7: hi
  8. Well first of all, I'm surprised it should show the groupname at all, considering the fact that you have commented over your line:
  9. Maulss

    No, the groupname comes with PermissionsEx
  10. Well you said you made sure there are no conflicting plugins.

    Remove Pex and tell me what comes up when you chat.
  11. Maulss

    This comes in chat:

    <PotatoTears> hi

    but i set it to be:

    PotatoTears&7: hi

    in the config
  12. Okay. I expected that. Now add EssentialsChat to your plugin list along with Essentials.
  13. Maulss
    I already have EssentialsChat.jar along with Essentials.jar in my plugins folder.
  14. I just set up a local server and tested this out with your essentials config file along with Essentials chat.

    This is what I got:


    And this is what it looks like with your groups:


    So it does in fact, work.

    What I can tell you do not have a proper version of Essentials and EssentialsChat and hence are incompatible with your CB/Spigot build.

    Here is the home-hosted server I was working with. It only contains the Essentials and EssentialsChat.

    What plugins do you have? Also, is your version of essentialschat the same version as the main essentials plugin?

  17. EDIT: Now my server won't start anymore.. i reinstalled Spigot and now it gives this console log:
