Hello! This is yet another one of my server tutorial blogs, and today we will talk about Group Manager.
Group Manager is a extremely flexible permissions plugin, and easy to use. Its commands are simple and short, easy to remember. Unlike PEX.

How to Install GroupManager
Ok, now we need to learn the commands of Group Manager.

Group Manager Meanings

Group Manager Commands, and what they do.

Ok. Your all set and ready to go. Just one last thing....


Quick Extra that someone requested:
How to find permission nodes.

So there is what I would do. I would also recommend permissions, but I cant do everything especially since I do not know what plugins you will use. Thank your for reading this, I know it was long, and I tried to add pictures so you wouldnt be too bored. I hope I helped, PM me with absolutely any question (even if you need to know that Guanine is paired with Cytosine, and Thymine is paired with Adenine.) Haha. Bye guys.

I try to Use /mangaddv Owner prefix [Owner] (to test) but When I say Testing, it only shows my name. How can I get it to show the Prefix?
There could be a chat formatting issue going on. Check the Essentials Chat config incase it is not showing group prefixes. If that isnt the issue, I would need a plugin list to see if you have any possible compatability errors.

I think it's cus my Essentials Chat wasn't working so I got rid of Essentials and uploaded Royal Commands. Would it work with Royal Commands?
I am not sure. Essentials and GroupManager are written by the same crew, so they work the best together. Make sure you are downloading a pre-release build from Essentials - one that works on 1.8.7, and not something older. You may of downloaded and installed a much earlier version of essentials, forcing it to run in the emergency mode. Sorry for the late reply.

doesent work for me it dosent say [Owner] Player name its just <Player Name>
Did you directly copy anything? When I say <player name> I mean replace the whole bit "<player name>" with the player's name. So:

/manuadd <playername> <groupname>

will be this when you type it in:

/manuadd ZombehPig2 Default

Those are just example names/groups.

how do i get the jar i just get the folder not any jar?
Are you on Mac?
when i do /mangaddp should i put a slash before the command or what?
Depends. If you are doing this via the server console, it is just "mangaddp "

If you are doing this in the game (like if you are OP) it is "/mangaddp "

If you type that exactly (What is within the " " but not the actual ") then it will work.

What perms do admins get?
Like I said in this blog, I wont be telling players the permission nodes that groups should have.
This is because of the large amount of variety between plugins, you can have many different plugins or none of the same with a list I produce.
But generally admins would get all commands to kick, mute, ban, jail, teleport, change gamemode, maybe worldedit/voxelsniper, I mean its really up to you

is there any way i can give people like two prefixes? I would like donators to keep there ranks but still show that they are donator, so it might look like [$][Member]nammerbom when they are donator instead of just being [Member]nammerbom. is there a way i can do this?
Sure, if you are using buycraft or another automated minecraft donation plugin, just have it execute the command /manuaddv prefix [$][Member]
What that will do is just replace their current prefix (So the member prefix) with that, resulting in them having the same rank yet with that little extra [$] infront of it.
Another way:
If you want to to be an actual group, lets call this group Donator.
Just /mangaddv Donator prefix [$][Member]
It will give the desired effect and you will have a whole nother rank to add permissions and such too.

If you have any more questions, PM me. If we cant get it working over PMC, I will log onto your server to help you if necessary. Good luck

sweet thanks :D
Of course! If you need any more help, feel free to ask :)
I'm a bit confused, when I created the groups, they automatically came with their own prefixes in just a gray colour, is there any way I can delete these default prefixes to add my own? please respond
QUOTE: TraineeMod (I still have not found a very good name for this rank. Comment on any ideas?)

What do you think about "JuniorMod", "SeniorMod" and so on?

BTW, nice tutorial...
Thanks! Thats not a bad suggestion.

Hey man try this,

- modifyworld.*
- modifyworld.chat

you probably already have the - modifyworld.*
but - modifyworld.chat is needed for people to speak.
Make sure you look through your config files to find something that talks about OP and set it to false.
I can not remember exactly what it says but I do believe it is in essential config
I think ModInTraining would be good!
Hey i have a Server do you think you can set it up for me the groupmanager ? plz relpy or if you see this email me [email protected]
super helpful man! thanks! could you make a tutorial with permissions you would have for certain groups? that would be amazing.
What, like for example that Owner would have '*' (All permissions)
And like admin would have most of essentials commands and stuff? I would love too, but the only problem is plugins. For example, your server might have a plugin (For example, Heroes) but if I did a tutorial I would not include Heroes permissions. Another problem, with heroes it comes with customizable permission nodes. But I can do it for the basics, like World Guard, World Edit, Essentials, Factions? Is that what you want?

yeah that would be amazing. i can handle the tiny commands with most smaller plugins, but i dont feel like setting up a ton of commands, as i dont have the time with all the homework i've gotten recently.

Hey great work i will diamond but could you look at my tutorial?

I liked it, and added a little comment :P For your 'plugin guides' part, you should link it here. Mainly because their tut is just them putting down commands. Mine shows detailed uses, etc.
Ill look into those in a second, I am tackling the Essentials Installation and Configuration tutorial.

I read this for the lulz although I already know how to work GroupManager.
I expected this to be crappy along those other tuts.
I can tell you put a lot of effort into it.
Diamonds for you.
