vault: true
time-format: 'HH:mm:ss'

public-broadcast: '&e%player% voted from %service%!'
private-message: '&aThanks, &c%player%&a, for voting!'

  money: 100
    - 'example.permission'
    - 'example.permission.two'
    - 'WOOL{6}:64'
    - 'warp %player% vote'
# Note that specific awards do not include the awards above.
  # Awards given to players that vote from a specific voting service.
      money: 100
        - 'example.permission'
        - 'DIAMOND:1'
        - 'warp %name% pmc'
  # Awards given to players that have a specific permission.

        - 'say %name% has voted %votes% times!'
  • %name% - Username of the player. Not the nickname.
  • %ip% - IP Address of the player who voted
  • %time% - Not sure what format of time, Votifier handles the format.
  • %service% - Service used when voting, eg. ""
  • %votes% - Amount of times player has voted.
  • %connection% - Returns "online" or "offline" accordingly.


Nothing is Happening on Vote

  • Check to make sure the port you are using in your Votifier config is not already in use.
  • Read the Troubleshooting section on the Votifier page.

Plugin not generating files

  • Make sure your plugins folder isn't restricted. Usually this is not the case if other plugins can write files to it.
  • Try using Java 7 instead of Java 6.
  • Check that you're using the correct version of CraftBukkit corresponding to the version of SVL.

Config not working

  • Parse your config by pasting it. If there is an error it will tell you the line and column number!
  • Make sure you are using correct variables (listed above)

Commands not being run

  • Check to make sure you have a plugin that can run the commands you are trying to run!
  • Some plugins don't let certain commands run from the console, and there is nothing that can be done except look for a different plugin!

Connecting to Votifier but not SVL

  • Make sure SVL started up without errors and is enabled by typing /pl (it should be green in the list).
  • Make sure config works by checking advanced setups section of Configuration Page

Still not working?/Question not answered?

    Hi there. I'm having trouble with my svl config. I run this through a parser and it gives a couple errors, yet my syntax seems fine. I don't see any misplaced spaces, symbols, or indentations so I can't figure out what the issue is. I haven't tried running the server with this config, cause if it gives errors in the parser, it probably wont work ingame either. Help would be appreciated, thanks.

    What does %user% do? I can't get my finger on it. :)
    Also I'm trying to set up timed commands with pex, adding a suffix to players who have voted that lasts for about 2hours, The time command I use is

    'pex user %name% suffix " &f[&aV&f]"' < Notice the last ' , should I use %user% here instead?

    Thanks, awesome plugin overall!
