Cache time can be set to anything, but note that it works with seconds and is multiplied by 2, so you do not make too many requests. If you set the plugin to refresh every 20 seconds, it will multiply it by 2 and refresh it every 40 seconds.

Asking MC Players Online to refresh too often may result in too many requests and slow down your server. A 60 seconds cache time is recommended and will refresh the plugin every 120 seconds (2 minutes).

You can change the color of the text “Players Online” and the color of number, which indicates how many players are online in the server.

Changing the font of the plugin, will require you to register a new font from Google Fonts, and add font-family to the CSS class of the players online plugin.
