[about explosions] it seems that area base permissions over ruel the player permissions and admin priv
This is precisely what I have said above:
in some circumstances, the API does not tell the plug-in who the player is who planted the TNT and the plug-in has to rely on the generic area permissions.
as there is no player for whom to check permissions or level.
2) Immediate permission update:
Ok... something interesting. I had done a restart on my test server for a change that I made and now the permissions DO take a affect right away. Don't understand??
Do you mean that so far you replaced the plug-in with another version without restarting the server? It does not surprises me it was not working: chances are that, as far as the plug-in was concerned, the players did not result logged in at all and therefore their permissions were not updated.
Can we consider this issue solved?
3) Go to area:
Perhaps I do not understand the point: why the current "Go to Area" command is not suitable? Do you require a special "Go to Area" command? Under which circumstances?
