  • ...and the list is still expanding!

How to use the inspector.

Once you have the inspector enabled ("/core inspect", or just "/co i"), you can do the following:

  • Left-click a block to see who placed that block.
  • Right-click a block to see what adjacent block was removed.
  • Right-click (place) a block in a location to see what block was removed at that location.
  • Right-click (place) a block in another block to see who placed it. (ex: place dirt in water to see who placed the water)
  • Right-click on a door,button,lever,chest,etc, to see who last used it.

A Few Reviews

  • "It's easy to use and lightning fast when it comes to rollbacks."
  • "I've been running a MC server since before Bukkit, so I've used just about every block logger out there. CoreProtect is the best and the fastest."
  • "Go with CoreProtect. It's fast, updated frequently, and logs WorldEdit."
  • "Overall it felt more natural, simpler, and much faster to use CoreProtect than Prism, which just doesn't compare."
  • "CoreProtect brings complex logging and rollbacks, whilst at the same time keeping a low profile."

Plugin Metrics

This plugin utilizes Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which anonymously collects and sends the following information to

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version

Opting out of this service can be done by editing plugins/Plugin Metrics/config.yml and changing opt-out to true.

    Any chance to have a fix for accentuated characters like é à ù : in mysql as reported below : cause an exception but used to work in previous versions.

    Workaround : disable chat message recording

    Could you update for Spigot's 1.8 and new API? I would appreciate. Would hate to have to use a different anti grief plugin.

    This doesnt work on my 1.7.9! Many users are not being logged! Keeps saying 'player not found'. Worrying.

    a few days i could use /co lookup <t:Time r:Radius> and it would work fine, but now when i try to it says "use /co l <param>" and to get even time to work i have to add u:user and i just want to lookup actions for all players and it wont let me, i even uninstalled and reinstalled it including the config and database.

    And is there something that blocks older then 24 hour are deleted from the database?

    Btw im using a mysql database to use with coreprotect. Anyone has pros and cons about to use the mysql. Or do you recommend me to use the normal database on the server files?

    I have that issue but I'm happy that it's updated at all; really could not bear to be without this one, either. So thank you to the developers, for updating; very grateful. I'm sure it will fine from update onward.

    Hi people,

    I got the same issue with coreprotect. Couple days ago i updated my entire server from 1.7.10 to 1.8 and since then i lost all the old blocklogs. Blockchanges after the update are visible with /co i. But all the older block changes from before the update give me a "no block data found for this location"

    Hope it keeps working now, cause i need coreprotect on my server!

    Hi guys.

    We had CoreProtect working properly then it just gave the info "no block data found for this location". I did a purge of the data base and also delete it after as suggested on the Irc of Coreprotect. We have uninstalled and reinstalled it. Still got the same problem.

    Does anyone got an idea of what can be the issue?

    Thanks in advance for your help.
