Setting up Permissions with Group Manager
« on: 19 March 2016, 09:25:17 »

I have been scouring through the web, Bukkit Site, youtube and any other scrap of info I can find to try and figure out how to set up my ranks and permissions with Group manager. Im pretty confident that I have the structure right.
I have done away with teh globalgroups file and transferred everything to the groups file as Im only running one world. That way I can see exactly what the groups have by opening just one file.

When I added mysefl as "admin" in the users file, It seemed to have worked because the prefix showed up on my test message.

But when I try to demote or promote or any of the rank editing commands, I get errors like you dont have permissions, or the rank has to be a lower rank (for demotion).

I go back into the groups.yml file and the inheritences are all set up properly.

Im about ready to scrap this and try something different, but it seems that no matter what I try they're all as complex and buggy as each other.

Doe ANYONE know how I can Debug this or figure out what the hell is going on?
