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 couldn't figure this out after reading doco, and just saw some old 2013 info about vault not supporting multiple currencies which meant SignShop also could not. Is that still the case?

    If that has since changed, could someone link me to the information I would need in order to get SignShop to use a specific currency in which I've setup in CraftConomy3?

    Take a look at Splunk or similar. The free edition(used to) allows for a small file(was 500MB or under) to be played with for free. Splunk can be a powerful tool for sorting through logs like this and presenting a web UI.

    I came here looking for the same answer, now I will try Splunk again myself as the answer was no :)

    We are unable to reproduce that issue. As mentioned in the ticket, if you can provide us with a zipped up version of a server that has the issue, we might be able to find out what's causing it. But seeing as we've been waiting over a month for that, the ticket will probably be closed next time I do cleanup :-/

    @Devinish: Go

    What about bug fixing? Nothing came of reporting the [share] bug that freezes entire servers. I will post out to some developers to see if they can fix the logging issue.

    @GodsDead: Go

    The answer is the same as the last 3 times you asked. We don't plan on implementing any new features to SignShop at this time, but if someone would like to do it, we are open source. Also, you can absolutely open the log file in excel or other sheet programs, cells would be comma delimited.

    Any news on getting the Log save to MySQL instead of the transaction.log? So I can build a web ui. The current log isn't even in a known format, like CSV so it doesn't work with anything, if it was at the very least CSV I could have imported it.

    It sounds like you need an economy plugin.

    I recommend watching the tutorial video and reading the FAQ to start.

    Not sure if anyone can help me, I'm currently trying to get this on my friends server and I've never actually done anything like this before.

    I've downloaded Signshops and is currently working although overtime I try to purchase something it just comes up saying "The shop doesn't have 10.0 to pay you" I'm not too sure how to fix this.

    Also I'm not sure how to check your balance...etc

    Help would be so very appreciated.
