    Broadcaster - Broadcasting all of your messages!​
    Version: 2.1.4​
    Broadcaster allows you to broadcast an infinite amount of messages to specific users on your server. Broadcaster is lightweight, easy to configure, and powerful, all in one quick and easy to use package. Simply download it, drag and drop to your plugins folder, and restart. A configuration file will be generated and you can edit it as your server runs. When you're done editing your configuration file, simply type "broadcaster reload" on the console and your configuration file will be loaded without disturbing your users. Feel free to make any suggestions you would like in the plugin in one of the replies below. :)
    • Allows you to broadcast as many messages as you want to select users on your server
    • You're allowed an infinite number of messages to send to your users. The only thing you have to do is configure more messages in the configuration file and update the number of messages to reflect the new number
    • Manually broadcast a message by typing "/broadcaster broadcast [message number]" when you're in-game or through the console
    • Very lightweight, easy-to-use, and comprehensive setup allowing you to tweak the plugin to your server's needs
    • Permission support either using OP or SuperPerms (configurable in the plugin setup)
    • Coloring is available using hex codes in the configuration file (example: &4Message here)
    • Allows you to give select users a permission node so they no longer see the message. This is useful for creating a message in which only newly-registered users can see so that they can register on your forums or do some required action like reading the rules
    • All commands that work in-game for managing the plugin also work through the console for your convenience
    Planned Features:
    • None at the moment, feel free to make a suggestion
    • /broadcaster reload - Reloads the plugin. Executable either through the console or in-game and allows you to reload the configuration file without having to restart the server and annoy your users
    • /broadcaster preview [message number] - Allows you to preview a message before sending it to all of your users. Usage would work as follows: "/broadcaster preview 1" and this would allow you to preview Message1 in the configuration file
    • /broadcaster broadcast [message number] -Allows you to send a broadcast to everyone that doesn't have the specific broadcaster.exemptfrommessage permission node associated with that message. For example, "/broadcaster broadcast 2" would broadcast a message to all users without the permission node "broadcaster.exemptfrommessage2"
    Permission nodes:
    • "broadcaster.use" - Allows a player access to the broadcast and preview commands ("/broadcaster broadcast" and "/broadcaster preview")
    • "broadcaster.reload" - Allows a player access to the reload command ("/broadcaster reload")
    • "broadcaster.exemptfrommessage[message number] - Prevents a player from seeing a specific message. For example, "broadcaster.exemptfrommessage4" prevents all players with that permission node from seeing Message4.

    I would love to define scheduled messages to specific groups of users.
    For instance:
    1. a message to visitors (no build permissions) telling to register on the website.
    2. a message to players (with build permissions) encouraging them to donate to cover the server costs.
    3. a message to donors reminding them their reserved commands.
    4. several messages to all, for server rules, links to the website...

    Messages 1. 2. 3. are of no interest for anyone outside that specific users group, so they should not be broadcasted to everyone in the server.

    One way i think would be easy, you setup in the config, an id of sorts for the message

    1,message to display blah
    2,nothing cool here to show
    3,another cool message
    5,donate or die

    then you can specify individual permissions nodes
    ie: broadcastdonator.exemptfrommessage.1

    I won't be able to support you. It may or may not work. Give it a shot, I think it'll work.

    Simple enough. I'm going to rewrite the plugin, allowing easier changes. The code is a bit of a mess at the moment, but works just fine.

    wow thanks
    yeah, it works just fine right now, but I have no idea how messy it would be to add those feature :)

    It'd be a tragedy at the moment. This was written in haste, so it needs to be rebuilt and redone. Easy enough. Just will take a bit of time.

    Who still uses Permissions (the third-party plugin, not SuperPerms)?

    Also, plugin rewrite has started.
    • New configuration handling, allowing multiple messages being broadcasted at unique time intervals

    Make sure your permission-handler is set to SuperPerms

    okay ill try that, also a suggestion/question

    make the message come out as a custom color, so it sticks out! Also will other color plugins work on this plugin if oyu decide not to implement this?

    Minor nudge for 1.0.1 (1597) update (even if only in name) both here and on dev.bukkit.

    Is it working on the RB? Any bugs?

    Works fine. No need to update.

    Confirmed. I just didn't want others to think it was busted due to it being "outdated". Thanks again.

    I'll update after work today. I guess they changed the permission hook.

    I'm not sure Permissions (the third-party plugin from God knows how long ago) will work.

    EDIT 2:
    I've confirmed Permissions will not work. The actual plugin is no longer working for Bukkit builds (it broke and the author won't update, nothing I can do). Support for Permissions will be removed in the next update.

    Everytime i reload the server the config file resets.

    Resuming, i cannot use the plugin, because i have to change the default msgs, if so, i need to reload to make the new updates to work, but with reload = config file rollback.

    The bug persists with reload and stop/start the server.

    Hang on, I'll try to reproduce.

    Good catch; I'll get right on that.
