1.8.8 How to replace just word instead of whole line

  1. Hi guys, I have issue that when is placeholder in lore, the whole line is replaced instead of the placeholder. Why is it happening and how can I avoid it?
    Code (Java):
    public static String replace(String string, Player player) {
            String playerCount = String.valueOf(Bukkit.getOnlinePlayers().size());
            String playerName = player.getName();

            if (string.contains("<players>")) {
                string = playerCount;
            if (string.contains("<playerName>")) {
                string = playerName;
            return string;
    Code (Java):
    public static List<String> r(List<String> toReplace, Player player) {
            List<String> list = new ArrayList<>();
            for (String line : toReplace) list.add(Placeholders.replace(line, player));
            return list;
    Code (Java):
    itemsMeta.setLore(Color.sl(Replace.r(lores, player)));

  3. String#replace() is what you need.
    What you currently do is setting your input to your playercount
