    @mywarthog: Go

    I specifically remember coding and ensuring that type of thing was possible. Please open an issue on GitHub so we can talk about it there.

    @graywolf336: Go

    Nope. It won't even recognize a config change without a full restart of the server. :/

    And then once it does that, it doesn't transfer the changes. So, that begs the next question..... do I just C&P everything from the flatfile accordingly into an 'INSERT' page on phpMyAdmin? More specifically, how do I insert the signs into the database?

    @mywarthog: Go

    Yes. Change the settings in your configuration and then issue a jail reload command. I think.

    Is there any way to easily migrate the flat file jails into the Database?

    @DarK_MatterZ: Go

    Make a new issue on GitHub and we will see about adding that. :)

    Love the plugin, but can you add something that allows prisioners to be able to buy an item that lets them unjail themselves? Like a cell key that you can buy on a roleplay server blackmarket.

    Can you add back guard option in Jail 3 and can you add that if players leave the cell region (or something like that),guards will attack him,because he just can leave his cell and be in the jail.
