    I don't think it's directly CommandSigns causing this, but anyone else encountering a bug where commands are being run twice when a player right-clicks a block? Punching (left-click) a block works normally.

    I'm pretty sure the answer is yes, but the lack of a config file is normal, right?

    Any chance of adding functionality for the /testfor command as a usage-check? SO if I were to run a /testfor command and it returned false, it would respond the same as a generic permissions-check or cost-to-use sign?

    If you haven't visited the PermissionsEx dev page yet, check it. This is probably an issue with your permissions file and 1.9, which I had too. To fix it, add the inheritance: [] tag to each group in your permissions.yml file - that's how I fixed it. If you need help with this, send me a PM :)

    I have a server where you can choose races when you click a sign, which is linked to permissionsEx. Example: ./commandsigns 1 /pex user <player> group set elf .... ect.. you know. And when im opped I can click the sign. But when i put myself into default group I cant click the sign?? I gave myself the permissions from: And it didnt work. I even gave myself commandsigns.* and it still didnt work.. please help :C

    @xIcyTwelve: Go

    Yes you can bind any number of commands to a single CommandSign. Just use...

    /cmds 1 /first command
    /cmds 2 /second command
    /cmds 63 /yet another command

    As for you second question regarding the give command, CommandSigns does not use basic targeter syntax (@p) instead uses <variables>. So, you want to use something like this instead...

    /cmds 14 /give <player> minecraft:wooden_pickaxe

    @frizzbee30: Go

    It actually doesn't work. At least on spigot 1.9 (wich has bukkit 1.9 as base). Do i have to do something more?

    Edit: It actually work with a version on the page of Spigot.
