    Hey there, just a quick question with the YAML configurations. Is it possible to log something like:
    '&7Hello, my name is %Player.' for instance and allow the code to swap the '%Player' part with another variable? I've seen this in other plugins and would like to learn how it works. I tried a couple of codes but they don't seem to be working, which was quite expected. Tips? Thanks again! Please reply ASAP! :D

    plugin.getConfig().getString("message.hello").replace("%Player",player.getName());

    You need to replace the value before writing it to the file. That is actually pretty basic:

    Code:java
    1. String str = "&7Hello, my name is %Player.";
    2. str = str.replace("%Player", player.getDisplayName()); //or whatever you want it to say


    For performance purposes I would however recommend to use String.format() instead of replace:
    Code:java
    1. String str = "&7Hello, my name is %s.";
    2. str = String.format(str, player.getDisplayName()); //or whatever you want it to say


    Or, if you are dealing with translatable messages, the MessageFormat might help as it provides more flexible variables for different types.
