Want to rank players with GroupManager/Permissions using your forum system instead? Use Warrant! [DistrictMine] Albus v4.0 Whitelisting via forum grouping Albus is a whitelist plugin that allows admins to whitelist their servers, by grouping members in their forum. The Bukkit server will ask the forum's database - whenever someone logs in - whether their username in the forum has a group id that is allowed to join the server. This is especially good for subscription servers, where SMF subscriptions are used. It will completely automate the whitelist function for your minecraft server.
