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!


  • Get suggestions! (Leave me a comment)

     Can u add a Screen so when you click to edit the sign, a sign writing menu appears. It would make this plugin 1,000,000,000 times better! :P I love this plugin

    I don't like op, So I am in my own group that I made. After adding all of the permissions to my admin group, I can't edit signs. It always says cannot paste, cannot edit etc. Please fix this permission bug.

    Nice Plugin! Works great, also with newest bukkit dev =)


    Could you add an Option inside the Config to Change or disable the prefix for next version? :)

    That is probably because the sign is used by essentials, so essentials is blocking the sign from being changed.

    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.
