FrameProtect - Logo



This is a plugin which allows you to protect item frames and paintings.

PROJECT PAUSED -> waiting for Sponge


  • prevent players from knocking down item frames and paintings
  • create protected item frames and paintings
  • set the owner of protected item frames and paintings
  • stop placing multiple item frames at the same place
  • prevent players from cheating items by putting them into item frames in gamemode Creative
  • stop creepers, tnt and all the other things from destroying protectet frames/paintings
  • stop pistons from destroying protectet frames/paintings
  • autoprotect the blocks that frames/paintings are hanging on
  • MySql support
  • permissions support
  • Minecraft 1.7 compatible



  • added: new language (Russian)
  • added: config option to en-/disable the this is not your frame/painting and you can't destroy frames/paintings messages → disable_not_yours_messages
  • fixed: block duplication bug when using mcMMO (and maybe some other plugins)

There is a bug in 1.6 / 1.7 that causes a doubling of the data on each save.

Unfortunately, the whole MySql database have to be cleared because it may take hours to load the data and see which entries are identical (the databases may have a size of multiple millions of entries).

you've used version 1.6 or 1.7 and you're storing your data in a MySql database, the plugin will automatically reset your database on first start.

you have to protect all the frames and paintings again

sorry for that, it's my fault

    great plugin, but we are getting glitchy blocks that behave like frames in creative/survival since moving to spigot (after craftbukkit went bang!)

    Due to the 'death' of bukkit I'll not update FrameProtect anymore.

    I'll be porting it to Sponge as soon as possible.

    I'm currently working on a complete recode of FrameProtect.
    Since 1.8 is out now there might be not enough time for me to publish the new version before mojang makes name changing available. sorry for that, but I don't have much time left for programing. :(

    I was just wondering if the UUID change is still being worked on. We are planning to move to 1.7.10 soon and the 1.8 Mojang pre-release may happen this week.

Should I add the possibility to protect signs?
