You can use txt files to describe the logout message a player will see when he gets banned. By default this entire functionality is disabled. To enable templates do the following.


Inside the Staff++ plugin directory create a bans directory if it does not already exists. Inside this bans directory you can create the template files. A template file is a simple text file containing the message that will displayed to the user on ban. Example file:

I named the above file default.txt. The file name without extension will be used as template name.

This will result in the following:

My example is not that pretty but it illustrates the usage.


Inside the template the following placeholders can be used




The banned player's username


The staff members username


The ban reason


Human readable duration. Only available with tempbans


  enabled: true
  permban-template: default
  tempban-template: default

Inside the config.yml file you can fill in a default template for permanent and temporary ban. Or leave it empty to fall back on the message defined in the lang file.

Overwriting the default template

If staff members have the permission: staff.bans.ban-template-overwrite they can use an extra parameter "-template=" when banning a player. Example: /ban thisplayer -template=other I ban you!

This will overwrite the default configured template and try to find and use a template with the given name. If the template does not exist an error will be shown.
