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.

    @Intellii Hi, Im having the same issue as @Daisy_Power.

    Typing /co i before punching a block does nothing.

    The plugin announces that Inspect is enabled yet blocks, when punched, do not return data. The block, however, is broken. Clicking on the block to view what should be block data does not spark a response from coreprotect. The block is simply being broken. Maybe this is an easy fix?

    Is there an issue with CoreProtect where when rolling back it has no clue what blocks I actually placed. I roll things back and tons of random armor stands place.

    Can you PM me your server info so I can take a look?

    @Intellii: Go

    No errors on console or in chat. I just use /co i toggle it and that works fine, it toggles on and off, but toggled on and smacking a block, chest, door, etc produces no text on screen in the game.

    I know that there were actions on a particular chest, because I used: /co l u: <player> a: -container t: 20m

    and tped to that chest.

    I have all perms on the server (Owner) , but I did try op also and that did not work either.

    I was just using the other version earlier this morning and it worked fine.

    The plugin itself appears to be working fine... just not receiving the inspect data to chat.

    Also tested on one of my alt accounts and just myself the inspect perm with same results: /co i toggles off and on, but no actual data appears on screen when hitting a block.

    @Daisy_Power: Go

    You're not seeing any errors in the server console?

    Are you an op on your server?

    Been running Coreprotect for years now so I know how to use it and how it works.

    I was running v2.11.2 on Spigot 1.8.1 server and everything worked fine except for AntiXray plugin not being able to see the new way blocks are named, so I installed latest (v2.12.0) and CoreProtect Anti-Xray is back to working, so thank you so much for that, but I now am not able to inspect at all when using /co i and hitting a block. I thought this may have something to do with my being in vanish, but unvanishing did not solve it. Thought maybe it was perms, but I have all perms that I know of for CoreProtect.

    I can use /co lookup and see actions of players and I teleported to a chest that a player added items to, but absolutely nothing happened when I inspected that chest with /co i. No errors, no "no data" on the chest..... just nothing. Kind of strange, since it just worked fine on v2.11.2.

    Maybe it's just something simple that I have forgot to update, but was wondering if anyone else is seeing this?

    Building off of mikgreg's question, if I have been using CoreProtect, and need (for storage reasons) to enable MySQL, then what happens to all of my data? Is it just lost? Do I have to start over from the point where I enable MySQL? Or is there a way to retain the data from the flat file?
