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!

    The plugin works in 1.9x but it throws an exception on task 40 every now and then.

    I am in the middle of midterms, but I am hoping to brush some dust off of this plugin in the next month or so. I'm just going to start with getting it back to 100% functioning (no errors). Then I can begin looking at some updates.

    It seems to work fine in 1.9, except that it throws exceptions in the console. I'm sad because I doubt it will ever be updated to fix that.

    If a sign is regioned with Worldguard, will people still be able to edit the sign? And if a sign is locked, will they be able to edit it still?
