    To do this, you have to use a specific Chat plugin that works with GroupManager and/or Permissions. The best ones are HeroChat and iChat. I'd say you should use iChat, since it's easier for the average newbie to understand, no offense :p. Once you set up iChat, you'll be able to configure it to show your ranks coloured and stuff. If you have any questions about how to set up iChat for usage with GroupManager, more specifically how to set up the prefixes/coloured parts, I'd suggest that you ask for help in the iChat thread, since they know their plugin better than I do :).

    Permissions 2.7.x does allow users to be set to groups check yeditor (http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/admin-yeditor-v1-2-β-edit-permissions-on-the-fly-740.4186/) as that adds users to permissions 2.7.x using a simple command.

    Kalman, Im sure you know what your doing, but when you add support to Permission make sure when your plugin adds a certain permission to a player that it removes him from his previous group. As this may cause some issues.

    Will do.

    Updated to final version 1.0.0.​
    • Added Permissions 3.x.x support. This is not proper Permissions 3 support, as they have no proper documentation... When using Permissions, Bulletin Board Bridge WILL delete your user from the users.yml file, and will add you again afterwards. For this reason it is best not to have any permissions/prefixes for specific users for now.
    If anyone would like to help me properly add Permissions support by explaining to me how I can remove all of a user's groups without deleting a user, feel free to contact me at [email protected] or through the Bukkit.org forums.

    Special thanks to @silthus .

    Great plugin, I was using Albus (which is still great) on its own since Warrant was still causing lag on my server.

    BBB is working just fine and no lag :)

    Glad to hear it :).

    Updated to v1.0.1. This should be the only version coming out until I add another feature(thinking about nicknames based on forum nicknames).
    • Added proper Permissions 3.x.x support. Bulletin Board Bridge doesn't delete your Permissions 3.x.x user anymore, in order to add the new Permissions group. Special thanks to @silthus , whose amazing RCSkills plugin you should certainly check out. Right now.

    Hello again.
    I've finally got your plugin working on old-school mode matched with an authenticate plugin to fix the security issues.

    ... its mainly more of a problem with groupmanager, but when a user is added to the "users" file, in order for that user to attain the rank properly the server must be restarted, reloading it will not give them the correct permissions. Is there anyway to fix this?
  15. Offline

    Kalman Olah

    Your players should have the permissions regardless of the server being restarted or not. Let's say a player called Player logs in and changes his group from group A to B. If you check the GroupManager users.yml it'll still say Player is in group A, but he will already have group B permissions from the moment his group is changed by Bulletin Board Bridge. The changed groups just didn't get saved to a file yet. The player should have the permissions, though.

    EDIT: This would ofcourse not be true if you used plugins that get a user's permissions directly from a users.yml file. Luckily, plugins like that don't exist.

    Ergh i'm guessing I have another strange problem because I assumed it would work this way, but it isn't doing so. I tested certain commands and tried it a few different times. I guess I will try so again then try to figure out my issue with groupmanager >_>

    Kalman Olah

    You may want to check if the groups you set in config.yml match the ones in your GroupManager's groups.yml. It's case sensitive and stuff.

    EDIT: Heading to bed, leave PMs :).

    Hey! Any progress with subgroups?
  19. Offline

    Kalman Olah

    Yeah. Lots of progress! I've progressed further and further into keeping it on hold :p. I'm pretty sure Permissions 3.x.x only supports multigroup, not subgroups. I'll be adding it soon, should it be possible, along with a synced nicknames feature. Someone also PMed me a suggestion to add synced bans. This could already be done with my whitelist feature, but the banned forum users would only get blacklisted. So yeah, I may add ban syncing too.

    EDIT: For the record, I still don't get why you would possibly need to use subgroups. At all.

    Solved my problem by adding an entry in mysql.user for 'user'@'IP' and then granted the appropriate permissions.
    Also removed the port number from my IP in config.yml, which assumes default.

    Awesome, glad you got it to work.

    Has anyone actually gotten this to work with IP Board? I've been at this all day with absolutely no luck.

    I'm trying to get this to work in "Old School: mode with Permissions 3.1x

    Thus far, everything seems to load fine with no errors present in the console, or the logs....but no users are loaded (I'm using a custom profile field for MC usernames):

    When I look at the player list, it's empty.

    All my remote SQL settings are correct, and the MC server is whitelisted with the database server.

    The whole point of my old-school mode is that is does not check any usernames/passwords. As such it does not need to store anything in the playerlist.yml file. And as such the playerlist.yml file is empty.

    If you were to use my plugin in normal mode, specifically the IPB-specific normal mode, encrypted usernames/passwords would be stored inside the playerlist.yml.
  24. Offline


    Hmmm....I tried that, and nothing was added to the playerlist.yml

    As it stands, it simply looks like it is failing to grab any info from the database forum, but since it isn't kicking off any errors/debugging info, I have no idea where to look.

    Kalman Olah

    Did your players actually try the /bbb sync <forum username> <forum password> command in normal mode? If they do this correctly, they should be added to the PlayerList.yml.

    But yeah, if you are having issues, please PM me your config.yml, config.inc.php(if using normal mode), server.log and any specific info.

    In the "Old School" mode configs, I've got this:

    Here's where I think the problem lies. In the first set, it asks for the "minecraftname-field:" , but there isn't a field for that in the usertable - I've created a special field for that which appears in the "pfields_content" table. So the question is, what needs to go in that field? I've tried just about everything. The closest I've gotten to it working is the message "No forum account found for your minecraft account".

    Kalman Olah

    the minecraftname-field is the field that the minecraft usernames are stored in. Since you have multitable enabled, minecraftname-field is the name of the field in pfields_content, where minecraft usernames are stored.
    EDIT: useridfield-in-minecraftname-table should be the field where the USER IDs are stored in that table, similar to useridfield-in-usertable. This is NOT the field the actual usernames are stored in, that is minecraftname-field.

    Ok....following your instructions, I changed it to this:
    Still no luck. In fact, with the above config, I no longer even get the "No forum account found for your minecraft account" message.

    Try logging in. Show me the console output from when you log in.

    Can people link one forum account with multiple accounts? If so is there a way to see who has multiple minecraft names or see whose name if linked with what forum account? When users are demoted in game do they also get demoted on the forums vise vera?
  31. Offline

    Kalman Olah

    Multiple accounts can be linked to the same forum account in normal mode. This is impossible in old-school mode, due to the way it fetches a minecraft username directly. When users are demoted ingame their ranks on the forums are not affected in any way. When they are demoted on the forums, however, they could be blacklisted or demoted ingame, depending on your Bulletin Board Bridge configuration.
