    If you know how to replicate this duplication issue could you PM me with the information and I'll do my best to create a fix for it. Thank you.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to disable deposit signs as one of our players has found a way of duplicating items using the sign deposit method, checked the config but signs do not appear in the Inventory blocks for (deposit)

    my only problem in this is whenever the server restarts the networks dissapear and then all the sorting system i did is gone to waste x.x

    @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.
