Plugin installation & configuring guide
Avoid reloading as it can cause memory leaks and undesired issues with some plugins.
If ChatSentry was successfully installed, you'll see a message in your console like this along with some more messages from the plugin:
By default, all ChatSentry protection modules are turned off. However, virtually a modules settings themselves come pre-configured to the recommended values for most servers.
Start in the main config.yml file and enable which modules best suit your servers needs. Then skim and tinker with those modules individual configs.
Though everything comes pre-configured, each server is different, so to ensure effectiveness of the plugin we recommend you skim and tinker enabled modules configs to best fit with your server
Notable components that may require setup:
- The Word & Phrase Filter's block list comes empty by default. You can create your own, or copy paste one of the high quality preset lists. If you plan to create your own, refer to the Word & Phrase Filter block list setup guide to learn how to make a great filter
- If your server is not English based, you'll want to translate the Spam Blocker's phrase whitelist, and the Anti Parrot's phrase whitelist if you plan on using either modules
Once you're done configuring, type /chatsentry reload to push changes into runtime.
Type /kcs help to see a full list of the plugins commands.
The plugin offers a vast selection of permission nodes to let you limit certain features to certain players or groups. Depending on what you've enabled, it's good to skim through and ensure everybody can do and access what you'd like.
To ensure you didn't miss or accidentally enable anything, you can quickly see an overview of what modules & misc. toggles are enabled with the /kcs info command.
