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 :-) ).

    I'm not familiar with that permission system. You'd have better luck asking on their page on how to give a player a permission.

    @WhiteFangz907: Go

    There are a couple of ways to do it. You can make a subgroup with that permission, and add / remove players to that subgroup, or you can directly give it to the players. Depends on how you want to set up your permission system.

    and how do I do that? do I give it to a group perm? or is there a way to give it to a specific person? I have an explorer rank and what if I want to give it to specific people?

    You give them the SignShop.Permit permission.

    I don't think it will work with a version that old, but we have older versions of the plugin that will work with that version of MC. Check out our files page.

    Ted is correct. By default, players are allowed to use any sign. If they cannot use a sign, then they either have a Signshop.DenyUse permission, or some protection plugin is preventing them from using the sign.
