In our opinion, the easiest way to create player ranks is with Essentials GroupManager. Essentials GroupManager includes built-in ranks: Default, Builder, Moderator, Admin, and Owner. A player starts off as Default, with no building privileges (it’s configurable though). Promoting the player through different ranks gives him or her ability to run more commands on the server.
Installation is the same as installing any CraftBukkit plugin. Detailed directions are at:
/listgroups to view available groups.
It’s important to be aware of the permissions allowed in a group.
/manglistp group shows of the permissions for a particular group.
When you add a plugin to your server, you may wish to make available some of the commands of the plugin to a particular group. Refer to the plugin’s documentation to determine the appropriate permissions nodes to add. Use the commands below to add and delete permissions nodes.
/mangaddp groupname permissions.node
/mangdelp groupname permissions.node
/manpromote playername group, where group is one of the available groups.
/mandemote playername group
- Log in to Command Center. From your server list, find the server you want to modify, and click the Manage button on the right. From the server you selected, click on the Files tab above the console.
/[game folder]/plugins/GroupManager/worlds/[world name]/groups.yml
Find the following:
Default: default: true permissions:
Change it to:
Default: default: false permissions:
Underneath the group that you wish to set as the new default, change
default: false to
Builder: default: true permissions:
- Save the file.
/manloadto reload the file.
It’s important to run
/manloadeach time after you edit a GroupManager
.ymlfile; otherwise GroupManager will overwrite your changes when you run one of its commands or restart your server.
