    Hi Everyone!

    Im new too all of this and I'd really appreciate it if i got some help from you.

    I've recently just set up a SMP server for me and my brother and i have installed PermissionsEX into it. im wanting it get it all perfect but i cannot. whenever i try to promote/demote my brother it comes up with 'Promotion Error: User are not in this ladder' or sometimes when i try to promote/demote him it comes up with something basically saying i do not have enough permission to do this, and im the owner of the server and should have all commands. Any help is much appreciated on anything that i have done wrong and need to fix it. Here is my PermissionsEX setup: permissionsex.txt

    Thanks everyone!

    Set it up in permission file or use /pex user Playername set group Groupname

    thanks buddy thats it working. What do you mean by 'Set it up in Permissions File'? Also how can i just use the command '/pex promote [Username]'? When i type that it comes up with 'Promotion Error: User not in this ladder'. How can i get the user in the ladder?

    The problem you done is you set every rank in different ladders

    if you want to be able to promote from lowest rank to highest rank, delete "rank-ladder:" in all of the groups
    this will cause every group to come to default ladder, which allow you to just use /pex promote simme337
    try that and you will see that it works :) otherwise comment and i will try to help you fix it =D

    simme337, thank you for your help but this did not work. it is still coming up with when i try to promote jaijo it comes up with an error. i type '/pex promote jaijo' (no quotations) and it comes back with 'Promtion Error: User are not in this ladder'. when you say 'delete rank-ladder' do you mean delete that whole line (rank-ladder:Member ect...) or just rank-ladder and not Member or Trusted? if you have PermissionsEX, it would be handy if you sent it to me so i can look at that if it's alright?

    to all: bperms and PEX are each good plugins, no sense in arguing about which is better.
    Now if you do want to PEX, I've written a guide about it which you can find a link to in my signature =)
    good luck, zip

    Hey zip this is an amazing guide but unfortunatly, this did not solve my problem. i couldnt find in your guide how to promote people if they have the same problem as me or bother with the rank-ladder. thanks for that though

    I mean you delete the complet rank-ladder: 'Vetearn', rank-ladder: 'Moderator' etc.


    a ladder is a list where you can demote and promote, if you don´t set any ladder all ranks will get in the default ladder, As you have now you got a different ladder to each group, which make it impossible to promote / demote since they are not in the same ladder. if you for instance want a ladder where only staff group contains, give moderator, admins and other group if you have "rank-ladder:'staff', this will allow you to only promote inside that ladder by using /pex promote <user> staff

    Also, you need to give the group Default a rank, otherwise PEX don´t know where in the ladder he is located and what rank it should promote/demote him to ;)

    Sorry simme still not working. I've taking out the rank-ladder compleatly because i think thats what you meant but still not woking. I've given the default rank a 'rank' of 1000 and still no joy now when ever i try to promote/demote i get a message saying 'You dont have enough permission to promote on this ladder'. i do not know what this means. i have the owner the commands to promote/demote which i put down in the permissions.yml as 'permissions.user.promote: true' and 'permissions.user.demote: true' to demote, is this needed? im getting the feeling that we are finally getting closer to promotions! im so sorry this is taking so long.
