    I want to be able to charge a player for using a sign, what I want to be able to to achieve that when the click the sign it deducts money from their server balance, and then execute a command to give them enjin points, so effectively they can buy extra enjin points using server economy plugin.

    Can this be done? if so how do I do it?

    Thank You.

    CommandIt is essentially abandoned, yes. Doesn't mean that others can't continue it though if they download the source.

    CommandSigns is deprecated, but I'll still provide support if it's broken. No feature requests though.

    Please PM me if it's broken as I no longer have a Minecraft server.

    You say that this plugin is deprecating soon, but cmdit ("actual" project) is abandoned. So this means, that this plugin is abandoned too?

    v1.9.3 for CB 1.7.2-R0.2 Not working properly with Cauldrons build.

    for those of you experiencing the commands signs not working and getting a long error in console, simply downgrade to the 1.5.2 version and it will work again on your 1.7.2 cauldron build.

    could you add a persist command ?.... if i wanna add the same command to 100 sign i need use /cmds # for each block, but i´d like to have a command /cmds persist... in that case i use: /cmds #, /cmds # othercommand, then /cmds persist, and punch all the blocks.

    After updating our Races and Classes/MagicSpells (pvp) server to 1.7.9, we noticed some players not being "taught" their MagicSpells or sometimes not being assigned to their race and class, or not being placed into their proper pex rank. The plugin appeared to be correctly seeing names of the player hitting the sign with no issue before 1.7.9, but now the signs work intermittently.

    When a player hits a CommandSign they should be set to the chosen Race (and pex race group), taught 5 MagicSpells, set to their chosen Class, then warped to player spawn. All of these commands are run through the console and worked beautifully before updating to 1.7.9.

    Now, when a player hits one of the CommandSigns, some of the commands will work, but never the same ones. So we end up with a hodge podge of player issues. Some get their Race and Class, but the teaching command failed for MagicSpells and they don't have their spells. Some have their MagicSpells, but did not get placed into their chosen Race. Or have a Race, but no Class.... I have to go in (or through the console) and manually teach the spells or force the Race/Class for the player, or place them in their proper pex group.

    All manual commands for RacesandClasses, MagicSpells, and Pex work properly and the only plugin in all of this that is not updated to the new UUID system is CommandSigns.

    Since the CommandSign needs <name> of the player hitting the sign and these are brand new/never joined the server before players, I suspect it is CommandSigns not 100% of the time recognizing the <name>. So sometimes the playername is seen and a player gets placed into their Pex group, but not their race, etc.

    I am trying to find a work around for this for now in hopes that the plugin will be updated when 1.8 actually comes out, but we may need to switch to some other plugin or system if it is not.

    Our other (pve) server has used CommandSigns for 2 years now and we have at least 100 signs in there, from the starter quiz to a full blown quest.

    I really hope the plugin is updated or I have a whole of restructuring to do.
