This plugin allows you to edit signs while they are still on block/wall they were placed on.


  • Logging.. Every edit made to a sign is logged in either console or a separate log file.
  • Colours! See the Colours With SignEdit page
  • As an added bonus, SignEdit will parse colours when you place a sign.
  • SignEdit throws a SignChangeEvent with every edit. This means that if a player is trying to make a sign that they don't have permission to create, they can't! This is compatible with almost every major plugin that uses signs. It also works with HawkEye, so you can see who changed what!

    Is there a way you can allow changing of ChestShop signs through the config files or something?

    You might want to edit the plugin description and remove the 1st line which is incorrect and unnecessary since we can see the file listing.

    "Current Version: 3.3.5"

    Minecraft Client limitation, nothing can be done about it. If signedit would set the lines longer, the client would crash.

    It is possible to make the sign 15 letters with color because the signs are getting a bit small when you want multiple colors on 1 line.

    For Example: &1 &4Hi, &f<PLAYER>

    Something like that. it is one letter too long.


    I'd like to know this as well, my IGN is PoseidonsMinion. I cannot apply colours/effects to my name as it's 15 characters long by itself. This is why I'd like to have extra characters/not have the 15 character limit.

    Considered making it possible to direct edit signs by right clicking them?

    @kjly: Go

    When a player edits a sign, we pass control of decision to chest shop. So chest shop sees player X placing a sign on player Y's spot. We aimed to emulate the placing of a sign for the other plugins that are sign-based to work off of.

    I will do some more testing to see if there is a viable solution.

    new issue, im not sure if this plugin was to be compatible with chestshop, but when other players who don't own the chestshop changes the Buy line, the sign falls off
