SignShop 2 Logo
SignShop allows you to set up physical shops by punching a chest with your items you want to sell, then punching a sign (while holding redstone dust). It's easy to set up, and even easier to customize!

This plugin requires Vault and collects Metrics.

Example SignShop

This is an example of how to set up a [Buy] sign with SignShop. The sign above is linked to a chest containing items. In this example, it will sell an enchanted pickaxe for 600 Waffles (Waffles are our server's currency :-) ).

    hello all !!

    i have found a solution !!!

    1 - there was an old player name (without UUID) inside sellers.yml !!!
    2 - old player names (also without UUID) in player.db (thanks to SQLlite 3 browzer ;)

    i think there is an issue about this because in previous version, everything was OK

    so thank you for your plugin and i hope this information will help you

    @Mad_Astro: Go

    Yes, typically the worldguard use permission, or spawn protection are the culprits of this sort of thing.

    I am not trying to advertise my server by all means.  But I was wondering if you could join the server and check for yourself.  It's just not wanting to work at all, and I am really confused by it.

    <<reply 2814853>>

    Could it be something with worldguard interferring with the shop? Like not allowing them to use the signs?  I've tried for about 2 hours to figure it out and nothing can come to my head of what it could be

    @Mad_Astro: Go

    They should have the permissions to buy and sell from any sign by default. If they are not able to, typically there is some sort of build permission preventing them from clicking the sign.

    @KatVonDied: Go

    Thanks, it's back up!
