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


I too am leaving

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.

    Okay. The permission "wa.*" work fine for me.

    I had change very much places in the website code. For every single page. I can upload the translated files for you if you need but its not fully translated.

    I think so 80% of your website are translated. I'm a lazy boy :P

    [Edit] wa.use.command.mailbox or wa.use.mailbox doesn't work for me. Member with this permissions can't use /wa mailbox.

    here is the full list of permissions. I think op doesn't get the mailbox command by default. if you give yourself wa.* that should give you permission.

    if you're updating from 1.2.28 nothing has recently changed in the website. how many places do you change the text language in the website code? maybe I can finish the language support for the website some time.

    I can't use "/wa mailbox". Its print me that i haven't permissions but i have '*' permissions. I'm the Owner and have all permissions.

    I use PermissionsEx Plugin.

    Can i change the version number of the old interface or must i use the new interface? My Interface is translated so i will keep the interface if you had not change anything.

    I was blocking a few countries at the router which were a source of heavy attacks on my servers. I'm guessing this was blocking your download. I've disabled the block for now, so the link should work for you now.

    Let me know if you have any other trouble with the plugin. If not, I'll upload the 1.2.29 version to dev bukkit.
