I'm starting up a new Minecraft server. I was advised to use Bukkit and to use the DefaultCommands plugin to add functionality. However, upon installation of DefaultCommands, nobody but ops could pick up items...but they had every other permission (set the time, give people items, etc.). This was a straight-out-of-the-box CraftBukkit install into which I then put the latest DefaultCommands plugin.
I tried mucking around with the permissions file, but it is unclear whether or not I need a special plugin for that, and it is even more unclear as to how I would create permissions that would play nice with DefaultCommands. The documentation seems half-baked and very out of date.
A quick google search turned up several people asking the same question on the Bukkit forums with no answer; I have confidence that this community might be able to actually give me an answer.
Is there a simple way to make it so that ops/admins of some sort have all the DC permissions and normal (default) users have all the normal, default Minecraft commands (including picking up items...) and nothing more?
