Color Portals lets users create portals in game with little effort and no commands to type!

Using wool, a sign, a pressure plate, and a button, players can create their own portals!


  • No commands necessary to set up portals.
  • Portals link automatically. No running back and forth setting locations.
  • MultiVerse/MultiWorld compatible. Teleport between worlds with ease.
  • No permissions required. (But are supported)
  • No configuration required. (But many options are supported)
  • Plug and Play.

Download now and try it out for yourself!

Optional Commands:

  • /portal info or /cp info - Use while standing in or looking at a portal to get more information on the portal and where it warps to.
  • /portal list or /cp list - Displays how many portals are registered on the server.

    Color Portals is by far the easiest to use portal plugin to date and is also the most fun. People on your server will not be able to get enough!

I have put many hours of work into this plugin and it is my hope than anyone who enjoys the features it brings to their server will donate.

    Hey SnowGears!

    Another suggestion to add to the next update would be to allow the button to be on the outsides of the "button block".

    It's really nice being able to use it to easily transport mobs, but sometimes the mobs are too big to get around in order to press the button. This frustration happens to me fairly often; especially with villagers, cows, horses, and slimes. Being able to put the button on the outside of the block would make this much easier.

    Highly anticipating the next update my friend! Cheers!

    Hm thats odd. I will have to look into that.

    Also I will make that toggle for the next update! Thanks for the suggestion!

    Check me out on GitHub and on Youtube!

    Hey SnowGears!

    Hope things are going well for you! Looking forward to an update that will allow me to toggle off the requirement to have the pressure plate and button to set/keep a portal (one-way portals are very handy, but without the toggle ability, they aren't a possibility).

    Also, I just came across another problem with a glitched portal. I broke the sign in a portal after I linked it to the wrong channel (tho a channel that had other portals on it), then tried to replace the sign, but I repeatedly get the error message:

    "You can not put another sign on top of this portal"

    Breaking the first sign should've destroyed the portal, shouldn't it?

    Cheers mate!

    Hey we have been using this plugin for about 1 month on our server, and while we and our players love it, the portals often break for no apparent reason. This is becoming an increasing problem for us and there isn't even any errors to show for the bug.

    The portals are set up perfectly, linked and all, but they just wont teleport the player. This happens randomly, where some portals works perfectly and others aren't.

    Any idea of whats causing this or how to fix it?

    @Yayes: Go

    You will need to delete the ColorPortals folder and install version 1.6.
    This also requires that you rebuild all of your portals. But after that, you should have no more issues and future versions will not require you to rebuild your portals ever again.

    @SnowGears: Go

    I see. I went to have another look at it and the .yml file is completely blank. If I delete the ColorPortals folder, and reinstall the plugin, do you think that will sort it all out, or will we have to revisit all the gate locations we can find and rebuild them?

    Thanks for helping me with this.

    @Yayes: Go

    If the portals.yml file is gibberish symbols then I have found your problem. You did not delete your ColorPortals folder before upgrading to ColorPortals v1.6.

    I stated this is the changelog for 1.6 in bold.

    @SnowGears: Go

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'll see if I can update the portal.yml file, tho so far I haven't had much luck even looking at that file. Every time I try it's a bunch of gibberish symbols; nothing very readable. Any thoughts on that?

    As for a plugin that alters signs in any way, no. I don't have many plugins on the server, and the only one that has anything to do with signs is Color Portals. I'll double check, but it's a short list.

    Any other thoughts or ideas would be welcome. Thanks again! -Yayes

    @Yayes: Go

    I'm sorry to hear about that. As for your first console error, the only thing I can think of that would cause that would be another plugin adding special characters in the sign text when you write it. Do you have another sign coloring plugin of any sort?

    And I can add the button and pressure plate requirement as an option for a future update. I also like the idea that operators would be able to delete portals remotely. Great suggestion! One thing that you can do to delete a portal (currently) is to edit the portals.yml file and delete that portal (but make sure to keep exact spacing and syntax of the yml file and update the rest of the nodes on the channel to match the change).

    Hope this helps! Let me know if theres anything else you need help with.
