Solved How to reference player in config?

Discussion in 'Spigot Plugin Development' started by CorruptedCookies, Jun 13, 2020.

  1. I've been wondering how people do this:
    Code (Text):

    onFirstJoin:
        broadcastMessage: <Player> "Has joined for the first time!"
     
    How are do you make this variable <Player> in your config?

    Note: I'm not sure if that layout above was correct it was more of an example
     
  2. umm
    Code (Java):
    getConfig().getString("onFirstJoin.broadcastMessage").replace("<Player>",player.getName());

  3. you should use broadcastMessage: "<Player> Has joined for the first time!" instead of broadcastMessage: <Player> "Has joined for the first time!"
     
  4. I love how people completely ignore what the guy needed help with & start finding mistakes in his work.
    He litterly said that there are mistakes in the layout & its just an example.
