About NameTags


Change your user's nametags!

(That's the name over their head)

Requires TagAPI to run. Get it here!





Setup

Give users the following permissions to apply that color (or formatting) over their head.
The order here corresponds to the order of color codes, starting with black (1) and ending in white (f)
nametags.color.black
nametags.color.dark_blue
nametags.color.dark_green
nametags.color.dark_aqua
nametags.color.dark_red
nametags.color.dark_purple
nametags.color.gold
nametags.color.gray
nametags.color.dark_gray
nametags.color.blue
nametags.color.green
nametags.color.aqua
nametags.color.red
nametags.color.light_purple
nametags.color.yellow
nametags.color.white

Give the following for format (can have one format as well, note that this results in even further trimming of your name)
nametags.format.magic
nametags.format.bold
nametags.format.strikethrough
nametags.format.underline
nametags.format.italic


And you're done! That's it! Now you'll have a colored/formatted nametag!

To give yourself a random color or format: Grant all the nodes you want to be on the random list. It will be random from that list each join.

If you have inheritance in your permissions plugin and are inheriting nodes from other groups, negate the nodes in the higher levels you don't want being granted at that level. This is not a NameTags bug, but the way your permission plugin works.

ZOMG I'M GETTING RANDOM COLORS WHAT'S GOING ON

You have multiple permission nodes granted! Check your permissions setup, it needs a fixin'. ;)

Other commands/permissions:

/nametags reload
requires permission nametags.reload
Reloads all players on the server

Config:

setDisplayName: if true, also change the DisplayName property, often used by chat plugins
setTabName: if true, also change the name in the tab player list to match
refreshAutomatically: update tags every minute (for permission changes, or to change your random color every minute)
noChangeForLongNames: If true, long names that would get cut off *, instead don't get colored
\ onlySeeSame: If true, only players with the same color/format will see that color/format. Everyone else will see the baseColor
baseColor: [default white] Change from white to set everybody to a default color. Not affected by onlySeeSame setting.

* There is a 16 character limit to name tags, and a 16 character limit for minecraft username. Adding color means letters are cut off the end, breaking skins.

v3.0
Supports TagAPI 3.0 with the shiny new event.
You should update to this to make it stop complaining in console when using the new TagAPI

v2.2
Add support for white permission node.

v2.1
Fixed bug: When using /reload, config additions were not loaded but replaced.

v2.0
Three new settings for config.yml!
noChangeForLongNames: [default false] If true, long names that would get cut off, instead don't get colored
onlySeeSame: [default false] If true, only players with the same color/format will see that color/format. Everyone else will see the baseColor
baseColor: [default white] Change from white to set everybody to a default colored username. Not affected by onlySeeSame setting.

New permission node: nametags.color.random. Adds ALL the color nodes (but not formatting) to a user.

Lastly, fixed a bug with displaynames that nobody noticed until January.

v1.1
Add nametags.* permission node, so you can negate it for inheritance issues.
Add refresh option. Set refreshAutomatically to true in config to enable.
Checks nametags for changes every minute and refreshes. Note this will result in random changes if you have multiple color/format nodes.

v1.0
