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.

    Sure. Here you can see the settings i have set. Both are in the same database.

    added an item blacklist to the Settings table in the database. this will give a warning in game if a blacklisted item is added to the mailbox inventory, however it may still be possible to glitch the item into the inventory. if this happens, the item will also be blocked on the website so it can't be posted for sale. the item can still be posted to the server shops by an admin.

    to set the blacklist, edit the "Item Blacklist" field in the WA_Settings table. the value is a list of item id's and optional damage values separated by a comma ,

    for example: 1, 5:2, 35:8, 341

    that is definitely on my todo list. we need to get rid of that direct linking into economy tables. I know exactly how to do it, and have wanted to for so long now. lets write some code!

    It should work with cc 3.2.1. have you set $config['iConomy']['use'] = 'false'; ?

    @alek123222: Go

    lore and custom names should work, yes. the extended meta data used by mods doesn't yet work. I haven't figured out how to handle this yet.

    @DaisukeVN: Go

    if everything is set right, it should work with 3.2.1 but this is something MarioG1 was working on so I'm not very familiar with it.

    @Nflug: Go

    not sure what you mean. can you link to the page you're asking about? I think you mean you donated to a server and they posted it. if so, you'd have to contact them.

    hey lorenzo_p,

    i can't use the database from craftconomy to sync with webauction. Both are in the same database.

    http://pastebin.com/1p2jsZGJ < config from webinterface

    Plugins: WA+: 1.2.6 Craftconomy: 3.2.1

    Maybe the WA version isn't compatible with Craftconomy 3.2.1?

    does this support lores, custom names and attributes?

    jenkins build server is down at the moment, I'll have it back online in the morning. centos 7.1 was released and a bug in it took down my whole network. I'm getting things back online again now, using an old motherboard someone gave me as the router. if you'd like to inspire me to work on the plugin more, you're welcome to donate and make a feature request. I have to buy hardware soon, a router is just one thing I need.

    glad everyone still likes the plugin and is getting use from it.

    also, don't forget about MarioG1. I may still work on the plugin from time to time, but I've passed the project on to him. he too deserves some appreciation for the work he's done on it. when he has time to do more, we'll see what he works on next :-)
