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.

    do you have one for 1.8.3?

    It seems because of some new events, you can fix the double logs when right clicking. Hoping for a fix for that :)

    Nice plugin, it makes a good job though I mostly have to use the rollback multiple time until everything is totally corrected.

    But how can I look up changes in armor stands or item frames?

    I'll likely add some filtering options for chat lookups in the next release. :)

    Truly the best logging plugin in my opinion. But I was wondering if there was a way to look up when a specific command was done. And if not, can it be added?

    Tahg me for a quick response.

    Amazing! Sorry for assuming that it was a bug in CoreProtect :)

    Updating to the latest version of Spigot will fix the Enderman kill error.

    I know, but maybe theres an alternative?

    This isn't much of a CoreProtect issue—in 1.9, the PlayerInteractEvent is thrown twice instead of once on each interaction.

    Truly the most awesome logging plugin available. Rolling back griefed areas is only the beginning. Restore fire damaged areas, take inactive player regions back to vanilla without regen, locate that god sword a player misplaced in one of his many chests, resurrect lost mobs. The possibilities are endless with this dynamic plugin.

    Here's something useful: In your macro mod under onPlayerJoined add this line: $${ECHO(/co l %JOINEDPLAYER% T:1000d a:username)}$$ Now each time a player joins you know how long he's been with you and all his previous names.
