*RESOLVED* It turns out that Essentials and ScrapBukkit was competing over some commands. Yes it was that easy! I have Lewis to thank for this and I think that you who have followed will see it in my LOG post aswell. I think I went blind from all the hours of editing the damned config file... A great thanks to you all! I have tested with GroupManage 1.0 pre-alpha3 and works like a charm. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hello, I have been searching for an answer for a couple of days now and did not found anything that helped me with this. I can start by saying that Bukkit, essentials and permissions is up to date. I use Notepad++ with the replace tab with space option to edit the YAML-files. The plugin's is loading correctly at startup and no error messages. I have read wiki's and README-files that concerns these addons so refering me to them for a solution would be quite pointless. What I have concluded so far(correct me if I am wrong): Regardless of permissions, if a username is in OPs.txt they will be able to use any command on the server Even if I add certain permissions to a group and put a user in that group he/she is not able to use certain commands(i.e. /time(set time, display time works), /tpa) That my permissions file(according to various posts and the wiki) is correct in it's syntax, name and is loading as it should Essentials.config is not restricting any commands What I am unsure of(would like these confimed): If there are commands that essentials and craftbukkit uses that clashes and in that case wich will be used by what If the '*' permission is fully functioning(or my understanding of it) as it should(As I put myself in the admin group with the permission '*' I still can't use certain commands(i.e /time)) If there is something else I have to do so that Permissions will work as the controller of permissions/users on the server If my permissions configuration-file enables me to do what I want it to do if I add 'essentials.*' to permissions, does that include every command that the essentials package offer The main issue/issues: To enable all commands for group admin in permissions(without adding users to the ops.txt file) My permissions configuration file: Code: # System is no longer used, but may become used in the future # Copies is for multiple-world support # Put the name of the world you wish for it to be a clone of, otherwise leave it empty. # Does not work for the default world. # Example: copies: Derp - This will clone the permissions of the world Derp plugin: permissions: system: default copies: # Groups can contain inheritance. # To make a group inherit the permissions from another # group simply place the groups name in the "inheritance:" like so: # # Example: # inheritance: # - Default ## # All permissions including the asterisks must be placed in single quotes. # like so: # # - 'general.spawn' # # Otherwise errors will happen! ## # Globalized Permission settings: # # If a permission contains periods (.) you can denote a globalized parameter: # # - 'general.*' # # This will allow you to use all general commands. # ## # Single Asterisk denotes all commands: # # - '*' ## # To exempt a node use the - prefix like so: # - '-general.time' ## groups: Guest: default: true info: prefix: '' suffix: '' build: false inheritance: permissions: - 'essentials.motd' - 'essentials.help' player: default: false info: prefix: '' suffix: '' build: true inheritance: - Guest permissions: - 'essentials.tpdeny' - 'essentials.tpaccept' - 'essentials.home' - 'essentials.sethome' VIP: default: false info: prefix: '' suffix: '' build: true inheritance: - Player permissions: - 'essentials.*' - 'essentials.time.*' - 'essentials.tpa.*' - 'essentials.kit' - 'essentials.give' Admin: default: false info: prefix: '' suffix: '' build: true inheritance: permissions: - '*' ## # Users denote which users are included in which group. # TheNo1Yeti is in the Admin group # Herpina is a member of the Default group but also has access # to the herp.derp permissions # Derpina is a member of the admin group but does not have access # to the derp.derp permission node ## users: ADMIN1: group: Admin permissions: VIP1: group: VIP permissions: USER1: group: player permissions: This is a simplified version of my config file, but this will help you understand how I am thinking. So I want the Admin group to be able to use any and all commands without restrictions. I want my VIP group to be able to use the commands specified in the config, and build.I want my players group to be able to use the commands specified in the config, and be able to build.I want my Guests to be able to see motd and help and chat ofc but not to build.I want the specified users to be in their groups, with the permissions that the group has to offer. What I do not need: Floods telling me "it should work", "read this(links with no explaning what so ever what I should be looking for or read)", "I have the same problem" or similar remarks Unqualified/guessed answers or solutions(ideás are welcome but please base them on facts and supply a source if possible) I will post who and what solved this matter for me and explain it in detail when the matter is solved. This will hopefully help others in need in the future.
