Right now I have used pex to give regulars 3 sethomes, and I have made the elder rank inherit all permissions from regular. I would like to give elders 5 sethomes instead of 3, but I can't figure out how to remove the 3 sethomes individually while keeping all the other perms inheritied.
Are you sure you used the right permission or spelled it correctly? I have an elder rank using "essentials.sethome.multiple.staff" (multiple must be in the permission even for next tier of sethomes) and it works fine; and all my ranks inherit from the one below it. If you haven't already, you could double-check Essentials/config.yml to see if somebody might have changed the name. I know I've accidentally spelled permissions like "esentials.sethome.multiple" or "essentials.sethome.staff" and not even noticed it until things didn't work as intended.
