    @neclub: Go

    Excuse me neclub, how did you get it to work? I run a fun server with me and my friends and when I placed the plugin in, it shows up in the game fine and so. However whenever I create a network, it says the network is created but the sign is blank. Whenever I place a sign I get "That's not a recognized inventory block!" Did you have this issue as well? I'm running Craftbukkit 1.7.9 R2.0

    want to share the configs?

    thats one thing this plugin could use.. a place to share configurations.

    if I'm going to sit here and make a config with every tool from vanilla, twilight forest, simple ores, just so my tool chest can grab them all .. might as well share.

    My server is using the latest 1.7.9 release and we noticed today that everyone has the permission to use Autosort. We wanted to reserve it for certain ranks. We have verified our perms are set in the appropriate ranks and can not figure out why the default users are able to use it. Would anyone have any insight as to why this is happening?

    @josyd: Go glad you figured it out.

    My config for my private server. config.yml I havent updated to 1.7 yet though. So I'm not sure what I would add in addition to these things.

    I have a large warehouse with something like 120 double chests and 10 autosort connected lavafurnaces running smelt jobs for building projects. Just FYI :)

    Just for curiosity purposes, can we see what your config looks like?

    @josyd: Go

    Figured it out ;)

    I had mistyped the id for apple as 620 instead of 260 in "FOOD"

    In "RED" i accidentally added the ID for iron trapdoors, which havent been implemented yet.

    Getting an error, hopefully you can halp :) I found somebody else about a year ago having the same problem.. but they never responded back to you, so it wasnt too helpful...


    Annnd config:

    I get the error when i try to auto sort anything that is in the groups from wood down.

    EDIT: i narrowed it down to only getting errors if i have the red or food groups on a sign. but i cant see anything wrong. my first assumption was too many things in the list, but utility has more than either of those.


    im too lazy for capitalization this morning :)

    @liamomatic: Go

    Sorry I could not be of more help. Unfortunately the minecraft client is outside of my support area. I have no experience with how the internals of the minecraft client works as far as what should and should not be there is concerned. I would be in the same boat as you on that issue. As far as I know the unmodified client should have everything necessary to operate correctly out of the box. Nothing should be removed.

    @arcvvolf: Go

    thanks for all the help. I'm currently looking at all my files on minecraft as it is still not working even after a re-install. i have deleted the META.INF folder also. is there any files which you know of which should/should not be in the mine craft folder for this to work?

    @liamomatic: Go

    To answer your question about what the server admin can do, see my first response to you. However, since its only you and no one else having this issue I doubt that my recommendation will do much.

    So, as far as helping you out, I do not have any advice. From my perspective and the plugins there is absolutely nothing that I can do. This plugin is simply interpreting your input text and passing it to the server. If you have this kind of problem with other plugins as well then there is something wrong with your computer or your installation of minecraft or both. If you have client mods then try a vanilla only version or simply reinstall minecraft. The new launcher makes that trivial.

    Honestly, I am not exaggerating, there is nothing more I can do to help in this situation. Sorry, I've done all I can :(
