GroupManager prefixes not working

Discussion in 'Spigot Plugin Help' started by BillyBob9876, Jun 15, 2016.

  1. I started up a new server to test some of my plugins and it seems that when I do

    /mangaddv Member prefix &6[&eMember&6] &e

    It doesn't seem to add a prefix. I haven't tested the permissions yet. It may be because I don't have essentials installed? I don't want to get essentials so if I need essentials for GroupManager let me know of another grouping plugin BESIDES PEX. Thanks.
  2. Group manager is not kept up anymore you really should use a permissions manager what are your issues with PEX? Maybe I can help?
  3. PEX is so confusing I don't like how people with OP don't get all the perms and you can like add people to groups but you have to remove them from old groups and it is all so confusing
  4. Yea I used to think that too that it was confusing... there is a config setting to give op all perms by default. The reason they have it set that way is security... so if some how someone got op they couldn't ruin your perms. As for the adding and removing you can set it up so you can do promote and it will automatically remove the old rank and add the new PEX def is more complex but its kept uptodate and there is great documentation.. I am willing to give you some help if you don't understand it after reading through the documents
  5. Use PEX its alot better
  6. They both rely on essentials, and I don't like using essentials
  7. @BillyBob9876 PEX doesnt rely on essentials... essentials relies on pex...
  8. Thats not true. I have used essentials before with GroupManager instead of Pex and it works fine. Pex doesnt work without essentials I get an error saying it is missing a dependancy called essentials. Now I make my own plugins instead of using essentials though so neither work
  9. @BillyBob9876

    If you code plugins then you know the function of the plugin.yml and how it works? So here is PEX's plugin.yml for your enjoyment...

    No where ANYWHERE does it say ESSENTIALS and if you still do not believe

    @zml here lets ask ZML the main developer of PEX

    Does PEX require essentials to work correctly?

  10. Oh wait, it was GroupManager that said that xD

    Either way PEX didn't work when I tried it on my server
  11. To all you a-holes replying with 'use PEX, it's better' need to gtfo.. this is a thread for the GroupManager plugin. Constructive feedback is appreciated. Having an issue myself, where no matter what I do, the prefix is always [default].... can't figure it out...
