WebAuctionPlus 1.1.3

WebAuctionPlus - eBay for Minecraft!

A minecraft/bukkit shop plugin for your website! This is a rewrite of the original WebAuction with many new features and improvements. I've made to many improvements to the code to list on one page. Many of my plans require big changes and a lot of new code. As with any new code, bugs are to be expected, so please bare with me and report any bugs you come across.

Note: It is strongly recommended you backup your database before using or updating this plugin. Some of the bug fixes and performance improvements I'm making require big changes to the database. The WebAuctionPlus plugin will convert and update the database automatically the first time it's run.

New virtual inventory MailBox has been added with the update of Minecraft 1.3 and WebAuctionPlus 1.1. When a player right clicks on a MailBox sign, it opens up their virtual mailbox inventory and locks their website account to prevent item dups. When they close their mailbox, it updates their inventory and unlocks their website account. NOTE: This feature is new and running single threaded. If you experience lag related to this, I can see what I can do to make it multi-threaded.

Requires: Vault - http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/vault/

Requires: Web server with PHP and MySQL

Optional: SignLink - http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/signlink/

Currently supported languages

If you'd like this plugin translated to another language, feel free to download the en.yml file from the link above, translate it to your own language, and send it to me.


WebAuctionPlus signs can be created by placing a sign with [WebAuction], [WebAuction+], or [wa] on the first line. Case doesn't matter, the plugin will fix it for you.

Note: you cannot use the deposit mailbox sign while in creative mode. this shouldn't ever be needed in the normal operation of the plugin, so as a general protection, it's always denied.

Note: withdraw mailbox signs can now have a quantity of stacks on the last line, or leave it blank for all mail.

WebAuctionPlus Signs

  • %waTitle - items name
  • %waPrice - price each
  • %waSeller - sellers name
  • %waType - Buy Now or Auction

Plugin Usage


As I've said in comments, I don't agree with the mojang buyout. as much as I've enjoyed working on this plugin and want to see it continue, I'm no longer doing all the work. MarioG1 has stepped up to work on the plugin. I may still help somewhat if he wants, but I'm passing the torch to him as the lead. good luck, hope you write some good code and features.

    @dangerORclose: Go

    permissions can be a pain to try to troubleshoot and debug. the permissions for the plugin should be working. if you play with it long enough it usually starts working somehow. if you're sure there's a bug, we can try finding it in code.

    @James_Krieger: Go

    I haven't had time myself to work on the plugin at all. I haven't heard from MarioG1 in a while either, but maybe he's still lurking around someplace.

    @dangerORclose: Go

    it could be something broke with an automatic update of the database if you changed versions of the web auction plugin. it should work as far as I know, but that part does lack in-depth testing. I gave a different answer in your pm and github issue ticket, but it's probably a wrong answer.

    @XiaoTiMo: Go

    yes, the plugin is open source, although we'd prefer you contribute changes to this plugin rather than fork your own from it. be warned, it can be much work with little reward other than satisfaction and your own coding enjoyment.

    @ThexXTURBOXx: Go

    glad you like the plugin. I made the jenkins build server private a while ago. I love having it available to view all the information, but I've never felt safe about exposing a build system to the internet. it may be over-paranoid if it were only this plugin on it, but I have many other projects on it too, and I'd like to start doing pgp encryption and such things. I started my own project to make a build system that displays read only information with less possibility of a bug that could compromise the server. it's a work in progress. sorry for long answer. you can still find all the versions here http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/webauctionplus/files/ or here http://dl.poixson.com/WebAuctionPlus/

    here's a list of all the languages built into the plugin https://github.com/WebAuctionPlus/WebAuctionPlus-1.2/tree/master/java/src/languages just go into the database and in the WA_Settings table you'll find a line for the language. just set the value of that row to de then restart the plugin. support for translating the website hasn't been finished yet.

    about your minecraft skin, I wonder if it's something I broke on one of my own web servers. the website of this plugin uses the gd2 extension in php to generate the player images, or falls back on my own web server if yours doesn't have gd2. you could check your web server to see if it has the gd2 extension.

    Bam! all questions answered?
