Way to have two displayable ranks?

    I run a prison server where you can type /rankup to level up and it changes your group from C -> B -> A.

    You can also donate, which usually you would just change their group to the donator group, in my case Gold, and that would be the end of it.

    So I'm wondering if there is a way to show both ranks. Right now I have it set so when they donate, they get individual permissions and the prefix for the rank. So let's say they are A rank and a donator it just says [Gold]. This is very confusing for players/staff so this is how I want it to be.

    How it looks: [A] Sox: Hi
    How I want it to look: [A] [Gold] Sox: Hi

    Gold = Donator Rank
    A = Prison Rank

    I'm using pex for permissions, btw.

    Use a suffix as well as a prefix or alter display names.

    I don't want to use a Suffix, I don't think it looks good.

    Just use the suffix but change the location of it.

    Just put {suffix} in a different place.

    Just add {SUFFIX} and it should appear.

    These are the only options you can put in the chat formatting:
    {MESSAGE} is the text you type into chatbox.

    {GROUP} is the name of the permissions group you are in. requires a permission plugin.

    {DISPLAYNAME} is the name of your user.

    {WORLDNAME} is the name is the name of the world you are in.

    {SHORTWORLDNAME} is the first letter of the world you are in.

    You could do the per group tags and just add the A if they are a certain group. More advanced? yes.


    group-formats:
    Owner: '&f[&4God&f] {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&f {MESSAGE}'
    Admin: '&f[&4God&f] {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&f {MESSAGE}'
    Moderator: '&f[&5Mod&f] {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&f {MESSAGE}'
    VIP: '&f[&2ViP&f] {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&f {MESSAGE}'
    Builder: '&f[&1Builder&f] {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&f {MESSAGE}'
    Default: '{DISPLAYNAME}&7:&f {MESSAGE}'
