    Tips - periodic server messages:
    Version: v1.1

    BukkitDev project page

    This plugin will allow you to set custom messages to be broadcasted by the server periodically.
    A similar plugin with more features is rTriggers.

    • Global, per-world and per-group (via permissions) tips
    • Use colour codes on your tips
    • Different sets of tips with different periods
    • Show tips randomly or sequentially
    • Configurable in settings file (plugins/Tips/config.yml)
    • /tips reload command to reload the config file, available to ops or users with "tips.reload" permission, if Permissions is installed
    Yvar, TurtlePatrol and Kingjarrad like this.

    Yes it still works fine but I like to have all my plugins up to date so I don't have to worry about possible conflicts. :)

    You should add a command to disable tips for experienced users

    If the plugin is working fine and nothing in the code is broken... well... he won't really have to update anything anyway. The plugin is perfectly up to date and the only thing needed is to change to title to the latest RB. xD

    At least that is what i would do. Why change the code if it is still working? xD
    No changes needed right?

    # delay/period is in minutes
    # color code: $x, where x is the color code [0-9a-f]
      - period: 5
        delay: 0
        random: true

    The yaml is fine, I checked it all and everything with the yaml parser.

    2011-12-19 14:44:50 [INFO] [Tips] version 1.0.2 enabled
    EDIT: I've tried getting rid of the single quotes within the tips, but that didn't work either.

    dafuq? i tried removing everything that looks weird, special characters, possible extra spaces (4 needed for yaml if im correct) etcetera
    not even the config.yml example is good
    Invalid tips configuration file.
    Can we get an automatically generated folder with the basic config, right after a server reload?
  8. Where do I get the config.yml?

    Is this Plugin usable for a 1.1 Server?
    I've copied the example text but nothing is changing on the server- /tips reload couts this:
    Invalid tips configuration file
    I hope you can help me, it sounds like a really good plugin.

    My config.yml:
    # tips by world, or 'global' for all worlds
    # delay/period is in minutes
    # color code: $x, where x is the color code [0-9a-f]
        - period: 1
          delay: 0

    world United:
        - period: 1000
              - ""
    world United_nether:
        - period: 1000
              - ""

    Plugin works fine.
    change "world United:" to "United:"
    And "World United_nether:" to "United_nether"

    You just shouln't use 'world' in front of your world name.

    You can get on github if you tell it to accept the certificate. I uploaded it to bukkit-dev too, though: http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/tips/
  13. not creating a folder Tips and config.yml ... i made Tips folder and config.yml myself and copied ur "example config" there but it only shows "Another minute has elapsed"

    Ummmm... how do you get rid of the sequential tips and what are they used for cause i find it very annoying that all of my lines have tips and its followed by sequential tip 1 sequential tip 2 etc.And when I try to remove these they just leave gaint spaces in the Minecraft chat bar....as shown:

    Nice plugin. I have one suggestion: Allow for some deadspace/blankline above & below the tip text, like an embedded <CR> or something to help the text stand out better in a busy chat environment, or multi-line tips. Like this:

    blah blah blah
    blah blah blah
    blah blah blah
    blah blah blah


    blah blah blah
    blah blah blah


    blah blah blah
    blah blah blah

    Long time no see maczydeco. You will notice that this thread has now been placed into the Inactive Plugin subforum.
    If you wish to revive this plugin, please ensure that you update and test compatibility with the latest recommended Bukkit build before reporting your original post, asking for it to be moved back to the release forum.

    Thanks for your time.
