    yep it is buggy, I had the same issue, it does need an update. it doesn't play well with some other plugins, ie it kills mobarena and paintball. However it is great for 'masking' warp signs! :) Hope it does get updated at some point

    try making the sign give a perm like @tutorial.complete then have it check if that player has that permission and if they dont it gives the permissions and the money. then also add that if they have the permission to deny use of the sign. (realize that tutorial.complete is not a real permission)

    Great plugin, but I have a problem: /*<command> doesn't work as it is supposed to. They can't run the sign, since they need the perms, but this should give them acces to use it.

    '*' means that the user will have access to the '*' permission node (everything) whilst running the sign.

    So they should be able to use it without the permissions. Is this a bug? Some meta characters chanced? since % doesn't work too.

    I'm running Spigot 1.8.0, and the newest version of commandsigns.

    Hope to get answer soon, Dennis

    UPDATE Need to read the permissions first :P But the % still doesn't work as it is supposed to.
