    @benytenny: Go

    The full-op permissions are probably disabled because of one of your other plugins like Essentials, WorldGuard, AntiCheat, et cetera.

    How do I set cooldowns on the CommandSigns!? I run A PrisonMine server and give the ability of prisoners to reset the mines but I really don't want them spamming the sign constantly.

    I created a sign, but when I try to use it it basically says I don't have perms, even though I'm oped and have perms.

    This plugin needs the UUID update for sure because of the cooldowns.. Are you guys planning to do this?

    Can I use the latest version on my 1.7.2 server without breaking the plugin?

    Can anyone help me with this? Here is the skinny: I am using KitMaster and using it for KitPVP. The problem is, they payment feature isn't working in the plugin. So I decided to use Command Signs to run the /kit <kitname> command. I have never needed a Command sign to take away money before, just give it. So I tried '/cmds line1 /eco take <name> x' which works. However, even if a player is at $0, he can still run the sign and collect the kit. (The economy would then put him at -$x)

    So, I tried the '$amount'. For example, the kit "Champion" needs to cost $150. So I tried various forms of '/cmds line1 $amount 150' '/cmds line2 /kit champion'

    But the condition isn't working. So how do I do it? Do I need to add the {}? Do I need a /? What am I missing. If you can help, it would be greatly appreciated!

    The plugin is very useful. runs on: bukkit and spigot 1.7.10, but Cauldron throws some errors when running commands, you can return texts but without command is not very useful.

    suggestions: - Support for 1.7.10 cauldron. - maybe always keep updated as an essential plugin.

    Thanks for this awesome plugin.

    The plugin is working :D One downside, I can't seem to get it working with redstone, I tried everything (after /cmds redstone ofcourse)

    Edit: just a quick idea which I cannot try yet, do I have to put a # in front of the command when using redstone? (since it's not a player activating the command) Edit2: So apperantly redstone is working! :) I was just using a command that could only be triggered by a player.
