This document provides a quick overview on how to install PlaceholderAPI.
Additional documentation on placeholders:
Guide: Prison Placeholders How to use placeholders. Includes HolographicDisplays.
Setting up Mines This has a placeholder example using a One-block mine example with HolographicDisplays.
Setting up PlaceholderAPI just need couple of steps:
Copy to your server’s plugin directory
Restart your server. Do not use /reload or you’ll break Prison Placeholders. Prison registers all of the placeholders upon server startup so the registrations will be lost.
Use the command /prison placeholders for a listing the placeholder commands. These include:
**/prison placeholders test
Example of reloading prison’s placeholders with stats on what was registered.
There are no known issues with Prison and PlaceholderAPI, but out of the interest to help get your servers up and running, here are a couple of tips that could help with your environment.
There was an issue with an economy placeholder not working with the QuickBoard placeholder.
The solution was to download from PlaceholderAPI, their modified version of Vault and Essentials. Followed by a server restart, or use
/papi ecloud download Vault /papi ecloud download Essentials /papi reload
If you use
/papi reload/ then you will have to reload the placeholders in prison so they are registered with papi. When papi reloads, it forgets everything that was registered before.
You can use either one of the following commands to reload and re-register all of prison’s placeholders. Both commands are exactly the same.
/prison placeholders reload /prison reload placeholders
If you create new ranks or mines you will also have to reload the prison placeholders. You don’t have to reload papi in these situations, just prison.
