What is Info Board?

InfoBoard is a plugin that uses the scoreboard feature introduced into minecraft, but unlike the basic ones that is very hard for server admins to use, and almost pointless for a server. Infoboard can show custom information from other plugins to a player.

InfoBoard can have specific scoreboards per world, but can also go even farther and show scoreboards per rank(Requires Vault).

Unlike other scoreboard plugins, this scoreboard can show values on the lines and on the score for the line. Everything is configurable and there's no limit to the pages that can be shown.

Fully Configurable?

This plugin was developed on the thought of now what if users want to do this? And because of that you can setup this plugin anyway you want!


  • Disable in worlds you dont want it showing up in
  • Set scoreboards per group (Show 1 group one thing and another group different things)
  • Supports color and formating codes
  • Configure the scoreboard's title, and rows.
  • Configure multiple scoreboards to rotate through(No limit of scoreboards)
  • Set times for each scoreboard to be shown
  • Use keywords and variables to show info


  • 2 different styles(Split and not split)
  • Use <split> and use the value for the score Example:
    Takes this: 'Online Players: <split> <onlineplayers>'
    and will change it into this
Online Players:1
  • Dont use <split> and it'll set each row up with a score to keep them in order Example:
    Take this in row 1: 'Online Players:'
    and this in row 2 : '<onlineplayers>'
    and change it into this:
Online Players:2

I've tried to make everything configurable. Don't believe me? Well check for yourself!


InfoBoard has A BUNCH of variables, from many different plugins!


There's currently to many for me to actually remember, so just look to the right and on the side you should see something that says Relationships and under that will be a list of all the plugins InfoBoard has Variables

Got a question?

Make sure the question isn't answered on the Popular Questions page first.

Can you add compatibility with a health bar/Colored Tag plugin?


Unfortunately Info Board can't support other scoreboard plugins(Colored Tags/HealthBar uses scoreboards) And in order for those plugins to work all users are on the same scoreboard(The main one(Defined by Bukkit)) and each has their value set to the text you see above their names. Now the way Info Board has to work, is every player is on a different scoreboard, this way everyone can see their own stats.

Can you add support for <plugin>


Due to the amount of people asking for a new plugin support, you must create a ticket and use the Enhancement Format, then fill in the information requested. If you do not, your request will just be ignored.

Info Board's Disclaimers

Within InfoBoard there is an auto updater, this is used to show server owners when i release a new update to bukkit. If you don't want this feature just go into the config, and disable "Check For Updates"

This plugin utilizes Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent 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 You can disable the stat collection via /plugins/PluginMetrics/config.yml if you wish.

    2 things:
    - When I join my server, it says that there is a new version, 0.2.5, but I got 0.2.7 already :P
    - When I start Info-Board, it says that the version is 0.2.6. Fail? :P

    why is it that when i set my playerpoints amount (this happened with exp to) the variable goes away? i'm using the plugin playerpoints and i typed in the command /points set (username) 80 and then the scoreboard number deleted? this is on the scoreboard that has the text then the number under it this is the scoreboard that also doesn't rearrange itself if this helps but the scoreboard that doesn't rearrange it self works fine.

    Info-Board v0.2.7

    Info-Board v0.2.7 Fixes "!" and "@". As well as a few variable bugs. I also added "<op>" The file can be downloaded when the Bukkit Dev Staff approve the file, or from my website(Files are not watched by bukkit staff and could be considered unsafe).

    Ok, I've got:

    - '~!<doihaveessentials.gamemode>TEST'

    I changed the update time to 10 seconds.

    This line now appears, but then disappears in what I assume is after the 10 second update interval. So it looks to me like this line is not showing after the Info-Board updates.

    I've simplified the above for testing purposes. What I aim to achieve is this:

    - '~!<doihaveessentials.gamemode> '
    - '~!<doihaveessentials.gamemode>&6Gamemode:'
    - '~!<doihaveessentials.gamemode><gamemode>'

    I also tried creating a custom variable from the 'doihave...' variable and using that, but the results were the same.

    Update: testing with some other boolean variables (<worldanimals>, <worldpvp>) produced the same results. Although it does seem the blank line (using code shown above) does remain, even after the other lines disappear.

    @timsavage: Go

    To use the condition if lines you want the fancy characters before the variable so:

    '!<doihaveessentials.gamemode> Game mode: <gamemode>'.
