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

    We're using this in a player run mall and have had great luck with it! I've tried a couple other plugins to protect frames, but this seems to be the most simple and reliable.

    I want to report for bug.

    When there is a frame, and the owner destroys the block, the frame drops, right? So far everything is allright.

    But when a second player puts a block there, it cannot be destroyed, unless the Owner of the frame comes to destroy it...

    So... that is my issue...

    The map takes awhile for it to load up in the frames, but although it's a good plugin for people who want their frames protected from other players.

    Players can still steal items from item-frames with fishing rods. Please update!
