# Command Signs

## Make signs run commands!

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

## Deprecating Soon!

CommandSigns is soon to be replaced by an even better, more powerful, easier to script solution built on the Lua scripting language! Any suggestions made in the comments will be taken on board for the new plugin.

All your current CommandSigns can be imported by the new plugin.

### Required Dependency

• Vault is required for CommandSigns. You can get it here: Vault

I am having another problem..

I have pressure plate commands which warp people to different places, and when they use the pressure plate they loose a random amount of hunger (the most ive heard them loose is 5)

not sure if this is the exact plugin it is coming from but just letting you know just in case.

An error in 193, makes a wait state to make error instead of delaying a command with %10 for 10 sec. delay. Either sign gets deleted, or it types [null] at the corresponding line number. If typed in from ingame, the sign might work for a while but later, it will vanish or make error. spigot 175.

@WolfeBersahd: Go

Use ~0. I read the source code to figure out how this worked, and it is possible.

Thanks isn't it <name> ?

@Arton123: Go

the /* gives the running user the * perm node, however, pex does not support the * superperm node. To be able to use pex you must have the permissions.* node, which you should never give to any player or even staff. You must make the commandsign run that through the console with /# pex user <player> group set member

Hope that helped

Hi,

I'm looking for a way to make a single use sign. And from customizing my messages i see the restriction message for "use_once" is the a restriction applicable to signs to make them single use???

I'm nothing but a lone wolf, misunderstood and labeled as dangerous.

My users can't use the commandsign with this command " /*pex user <name> group set member " but they can user /*tp <name> Playername

What is wrong?

Near the bottom of the overview is the Help/Support section.  In there is a link to the reference guide.

Yes, you can set a permission to allow creation of command signs by non-ops.  HOWEVER... if you cannot trust the person to be op then you cannot trust them with command signs. Command signs can do everything an op can do.  Also, if the person doesn't want to waste a lot of time scripting the thing they want to happen they can just make a sign that contains the following:  /# op <name>

That example will run as console, so not even turning of in-game op command will stop them from gaining op.

So... yeah, you can give non-op permission to create signs but it is pointless.  May as well just give them op.

is their a permissions for admins? in other words, other than making a player op, can i give them a permission to make command signs?
