How To Setup Voting

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.

Installing NuVotifier

The first one is NuVotifier. This is what we'll be using to send the votes.

https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/nuvotifier.13449/ (opens in a new tab)

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.

Opening A Port

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.

Using A Proxy?

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)

Installing Voting Plugin

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.

Setting Vote Sites

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)

Linking To Voting Sites

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.

You're All Set

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.
