CommandSigns allows you to assign any commands to any block making it easier for your players to do their command-based business!

### Required Dependency

### Features

• Signs can have any other text on them, the commands are linked to the sign behind the scenes

### How To Use

I'm pretty sure the answer is yes, but the lack of a config file is normal, right?

working perfectly on spigot 1.9.2

Any chance of adding functionality for the /testfor command as a usage-check? SO if I were to run a /testfor command and it returned false, it would respond the same as a generic permissions-check or cost-to-use sign?

@Ninjafar: Go

If you haven't visited the PermissionsEx dev page yet, check it. This is probably an issue with your permissions file and 1.9, which I had too. To fix it, add the inheritance: [] tag to each group in your permissions.yml file - that's how I fixed it. If you need help with this, send me a PM :)

I have a server where you can choose races when you click a sign, which is linked to permissionsEx. Example: ./commandsigns 1 /pex user <player> group set elf .... ect.. you know. And when im opped I can click the sign. But when i put myself into default group I cant click the sign?? I gave myself the permissions from: http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/command-signs/pages/reference-guide/permissions/ And it didnt work. I even gave myself commandsigns.* and it still didnt work.. please help :C

@xIcyTwelve: Go

Yes you can bind any number of commands to a single CommandSign. Just use...

/cmds 1 /first command
/cmds 2 /second command
/cmds 63 /yet another command


As for you second question regarding the give command, CommandSigns does not use basic targeter syntax (@p) instead uses <variables>. So, you want to use something like this instead...

/cmds 14 /give <player> minecraft:wooden_pickaxe

@frizzbee30: Go

It actually doesn't work. At least on spigot 1.9 (wich has bukkit 1.9 as base). Do i have to do something more?

Edit: It actually work with a version on the page of Spigot.

IS it possible to add two commands to a single block using this? And if so, or not, what would be the command to give a player something, using the sign? I've tried /cmds line1 /give @p minecraft:wooden_pickaxe, but it doesn't do anything.

Does this work for 1.9?
