Both here in the MC forums and the PEX forums on dev bukkit, a fair amount of confusion comes from new users thinking that adding a prefix line is enough to get prefixes to show in the game chat, when it's not, they still need a chat manager plugin along with the rest.

At first, we create a group called "Admin", which gets all permissions to administrate the server.
This can be achieved using the console or by editing the "permissions.yml" file.
Using the console: To create a group open the console and type: # This is a comment and has no effect groups: Player: default: true prefix: 'Player' suffix: ' ' permissions: Admin: default: false prefix: 'Admin' suffix: ' ' permissions: - '*' users: Your Username: group: - Admin CAUTION: Only the server admin should be entered into the (located in the root directory). Players entered into have complete access to all commands!
The default group (Player) should not get admin permissions (- '*').
What we keep in mind: Create groups: To give a group enough rights so that they can play normal, you have to add "modifyworld.*" to this group.
