This plugin allows you to edit signs while they are still on block/wall they were placed on.


  • Logging.. Every edit made to a sign is logged in either console or a separate log file.
  • Colours! See the Colours With SignEdit page
  • As an added bonus, SignEdit will parse colours when you place a sign.
  • SignEdit throws a SignChangeEvent with every edit. This means that if a player is trying to make a sign that they don't have permission to create, they can't! This is compatible with almost every major plugin that uses signs. It also works with HawkEye, so you can see who changed what!

    Could you make it so that you can use special things like nicknames?

    So on signs, you could just edit it with {USERNAME} and it replaces {USERNAME} with your username, and it also works with nicknames. So stuff like,

    /signedit 1 {FIRECONTROL1847}

    The Sign: [Owner]-Fire

    With the appropriate colors and everything?


    My username is FireControl1847 My nickname is Fire

    If I edited a sign with my username in brackets like so; {FireControl1847};, then it replaces that with my username.

    So if a sign said

    1: Sup 2: I am 3: awesome 4: butts

    /signedit 1 {FireControl1847}

    1: Fire 2: I am 3: awesome 4: butts

    The plugin doesn’t work properly, because in 1.8 and above, signs can have more characters, which means that editing signs with this plugin doesn’t allow you to have as many characters as you can normally. I really want to use this plugin, or a similar one, in a 1.8.8 server I run with my friends.

    So I found out that this plugin wasn't working in 1.10.2 so I made a GitHub to fix it for you guys. This is compiled with the 1.10.2 API

    Was working fine on my 1.10 community server until yesterday. For some reason it just broke... with no apparent reason. CheckMyInventory's SignEdit feature broke also.

    The plugin works in 1.9x but it throws an exception on task 40 every now and then.

    I am in the middle of midterms, but I am hoping to brush some dust off of this plugin in the next month or so. I'm just going to start with getting it back to 100% functioning (no errors). Then I can begin looking at some updates.
