How to setup voting on a Minecraft server
Voting allows you to rank higher on server lists. Players can vote for your server, and you can then give them rewards for doing so. For this, we're going to need two plugins.
The first one is NuVotifier. This is what we'll be using to send the votes.
If you're using a Proxy, install this there, if you're not then install it on your server in the plugins folder.
To install the plugin download it from the link, then upload it via the file manager to the plugins folder. Once uploaded restart the server.
Next, we're going to open a port. For this head to Network & Ports under Advanced and press Open Port. This will give you a random port number.
Then we're going to head to the plugins folder, and then the NuVotifier folder. Here you'll find the config. Set the port to the random one you just generated.
If you're using a proxy you'll need to do a few more steps. You can find more info on this here: https://github.com/NuVotifier/NuVotifier/wiki/Setup-Guide (opens in a new tab)
The next plugin we're going to install is Voting Plugin.
You can download it here: https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/votingplugin.15358/ (opens in a new tab) This also goes into your mods folder.
Once uploaded, restart your server.
We now need to set the vote sites we'll be using. More info can be found here: https://github.com/BenCodez/VotingPlugin/wiki/Adding-VoteSites (opens in a new tab)
After we've set those, we then need to set the rewards. Likewise, more info can be found here: https://github.com/BenCodez/AdvancedCore/wiki/Rewards (opens in a new tab)
Now we need to link our server to voting sites. For this choose a voting site you want to use. Every voting site will be different in its layout.
Make sure the IP is set to your server IP. Make sure to voting port is set to the port you opened.
Then set the key to the secret key. This is the long number found in the NuVotifier config.
Test the voting system by voting, and you should be all done. If you don't get the rewards then recover the steps and make sure you haven't missed anything. Also, check to make sure the correct key has been put into the voting site. NuVotifier will list two in its config.
