In this blog, I will teach you how to use Group Manager to make colored names and prefixes! This is a rather simple task, but if you need extra help you can PM me and I will respond ASAP! Here you go!

1. You need to install Group Manager on your server. This is no longer on the bukkit website, so google "Essentials wiki". You should end up somewhere like this:

Click "Download Group Manager"

2. Install this to your server. I cant really put a screenshot of this because a lot of people use different control panels and it would just be confusing. You need to go to FTP and then to the "Plugins" folder. Then drag/upload the .jar to there.

3. Restart your server.

4. Group Manager should be installed now. Now to create a group. To create a group use this command:

Commands

Do not use the parentisis.

5. Now that you have created your group, you can add the prefix and colors! Do so with this command:

Commands

Still, no parentesis. This should make it where anyone in that group will have that before their name. But wait, there is more! You still need to add color right! You add color by using the Minecraft color codes. Here they are:

Color Codes

Just put the color code before what you want to be that color!

I hope this helped.. If you are having problems with it message me and I will help you! If it did help you, make sure to hit the diamond and subscribe! Thanks..

When I add prefix to some group, it will show only in chat. But what if I want to add it into nick (name) or into TAB???

Hey from my experience you need essentialschat for it to actually show the prefix (regardless of if it has color or not)

You don't have to restart your server, just reload. Also, you should try making a tutorial on how to do it via server console gm file- once you get the hang of it, it's about a trillion times easier.
