    Permissions 3.0
    Rcjrrcjr has been working quite hard on this upgrade to Permissions. However, it currently still suffers from a number of bugs. The most important of these which directly affects HeroChat is the non-functioning of prefixes and suffixes. There are less-than-pretty workarounds, but I'm refraining from fully supporting an update until Permissions 3.1 is released which should include a number of significant bug fixes. When this does occur, however, I have a build ready for you guys that should work. You can download it here. Again, I highly suggest not using this until Permissions 3.1 is released unless you really don't care about prefixes and such.

    See you when I get back!

    Is your config resetting when you make changes?
    If you make changes to the config while the server is running, you need to use the /ch reload command to make the changes stick. I wish this message wasn't necessary, but people only seem to read things in big, bold, red text (if at all).

    Have a problem? a feature request? Go here.
    HeroChat now has its very own redmine found here. If you have an issue or would like to suggest a new feature, I urge you to file it via redmine. I will be checking this much more often than this thread from here on out.

    Show your thanks! Maintaining plugins like HeroChat is very nearly a full time job. If you enjoy my plugins and appreciate the support I provide, then please consider providing some support of your own. Donating even a tiny amount keeps me motivated and makes me feel loved so go ahead and donate!

    I'm here to help.

    If you want to apply this format to all of your channels, put it in the default-message-format field under globals. If you only want to apply this format to one specific channel, put it in the message-format field under the appropriate channel.

    Permissions to allow or deny channel access by the group

    Anyone else having a problem with HeroChat hijacking the /help command? When I type /help with HeroChat installed I get this message:
    Code:
    Command: Quick Message
    Description: Sends a message without changing focus
    Usage: /qm <channel> <msg> OR /<channel> <msg>
    This seems strange as it's not the /ch help command but it's definitely related to HeroChat.

    Chances are you have a channel named "help". Delete it or rename it.

    Hi DThielke,
    Is it possible to manipulate the chat if you open the chat to type?
    To display in which channel you are , so it would look something like:
    [Global] > .......

    Cos we are continuesly making the mistake to speak in the wrong channel ;)
    I'm sorry if this has been suggested ( and turned down ) before. I've read alot of comments but not all.

    DThielke

    Assuming you're using the default message format, set your prefix to &4[&1Admin&4]&f.

    Your config properly removes channel nicknames for me. Are you sure you're saving it and doing a /ch reload to ensure that your config isn't being overwritten?

    Via Permissions.

    Firstly, the F in &F needs to be lowercase as in my example. Secondly, it looks like you aren't using the default message format. If you still can't get it to work, post your updated prefix and the message format from your HeroChat config.

    Code:
            info:
                prefix:
                - '&4[&1F&bo&1u&bn&1d&be&1r&4]&f'
    Code:
       default-message-format: '{color}[{nick}] &f{prefix}{player}{suffix}{color}: '
    Thats the format that got created when i started the server wit hthe plugin installed, the only thing ive touched in it is to link the channels to craftirc. This is what it looks like now :

    I'll look into a way of adding support.

    @Relentless_x, using your prefix and message format I get:

    Either what you posted isn't matching your config or another plugin is somehow interfering with the prefix. Those two fields are the only places it could possibly get those extra brackets from.

    What i psoted is 100% correct and the onyl plugisn i have are:

    BorderGuard
    CraftIRC
    HeroChat
    MineLore (My own personal rpg plugin which doest affect chat at all)
    Permissions
    Warpz0r
    WorldEdit
    WorldGuard

    You tell me. Disable them and see if it works.

    I removed all plugins except Permissions and HeroChat and the results were the same.

    What do you get if you leave your prefix empty?

    The whit braces are still there :/ I then removed permissions completely and the brackets went, i then removed hero chat and re added permissions and the [ ] weren't there, they are only there when i have permissions and herochat running at same time.

    Can you post a start-up server log?

    It's just a privileged channel that everyone is forced to join, but only specified groups (presumably mods and admins) can speak in. You can remove it by deleting it from the config.
