  • Show a player a tutorial when they first join your server
  • 100% configurable
  • Economy tie-in
  • Easy to set up and use
  • Give your players a tutorial that isn't boring
  • Versatile - Use it for a play, or a plugin tutorial, or a welcome tutorial, or anything you can think of.
  • Lightweight

Tutorial types

CLICKRight click an item to go to the next view
TIMEAutomatically go to the next view after a customizable amount of time

View types

View TypeDescription
TEXTShow message as a simple chat text
TITLETitle (subtitle)
ACTIONBARAction bar above item bar


  • To make a sign, the top line must be [Tutorial] (changeable in the config), then the second line must be the name of the tutorial.
  • To make a tutorial start when a player first joins the server, edit the appropriate fields in the config.

We also include an update checker. It will download the latest updates for you. If you'd like to disable it, go into /plugins/ServerTutorial/config.yml

    Is it possible to make views execute commands?
    For example:
    [text shows]
    [cmd: tppos: %player% {co-ords}]
    [next text shows]
    This would allow to change what the player sees in the world, as well as the text, and I think it would be a great way to take tutorials to the next level.

    Maybe add more customization like being able to do a title and subtitle for one area and how like the title and subtitle stays on screen

    I'm (finally) working on this again! I've fixed the sign bug, looking at the others now. I'm going to add Action Bar and Title Text options, and remove META.

    plugins works, but need updates for 1.10. tutorial signs do not work, changing anything in the config resets the tut, time view seems choppy in text

    Will be re-writing this plugin when 1.9 gets a bit more stable. Will also port to Sponge.

    Several users have been reporting to me that after entering a tutorial, sometimes their entire inventory gets cleared.

    Happening on 1.8.7-r0.1 spigot and your latest version of servertutorial. Theres no stacktrace or any kind of error when it happens. It seems to be happening if two people are using the tutorials at the same time though.

    Our tutorials are all running on a Time setting and use Text.
