How do you configure it?

In the config, you will have different sections for OnJoin, OnDeath, OnCommand, BossBarMessages, Title_Announcements, Action_Announcements, and WorldGuardRegion
Each section will vary slightly.

Here is an example of a few configured BossBar messages:
BossBarMessages:
  No_Progress: true
  '1':
    Message: Empire Network
    Color: blue
    Style: '6'
    Time: 100
  Enabled: true
  World_Whitelist_Enabled: false
  Random_Order: false
  World_Whitelist:
  - world
  Messages:
    Message1:
      Message: '&2Season 7'
      Color: blue
      Style: '6'
      Time: 100
    Message2:
      Message: '&3Ancient Ages'
      Color: red
      Style: '6'
      Time: 100
    Message3:
      Message: '&bEmpire &cNetwork!'
      Color: green
      Style: '6'
      Time: 100


The most important options are:
No_Progress determines whether or not the bossbar should be moving (like in the picture above)
Message is the text you want it to say (supports color codes)
Color can be blue, green, pink, purple, red, white, or yellow
Style can be 6, 10, 12, 20 or blank for solid (0 in command form)
Time is the duration during which the bar will be displayed in ticks (1/20s)
Supports Placeholder API
