Sortal - made by Lolmewn


What this plugin does

This plugin allows you to create signs that teleport you to places you've set the location for. This can be very useful for a spawn, events, anything really.

How to install

It's as simple as dragging and dropping the jar into your plugins folder. Nothing else has to be done to install the plugin. Once you've dropped it in, you can edit the config (after a first start of the plugin). You can enable MySQL, set the default prices for placing and using signs, and much more. You can find out what all values mean here.

This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version

If you wish to disable this feature (/me cries), you can do so by opt-ing out, which you can do in the config file under /plugins/PluginMetrics/


This plugin has a built-in auto-updater, which connects to BukkitDev to check for updates. If you, for some reason, wish to disable this process, you can do so by setting 'update' to false in the plugins' settings file.

    Awesome :)

    Waiting to see what's going to become of BukkitDev. May or may not switch to a replacement if it completely dies off (which is what I presume to happen really).

    @ray0911: Go

    Just pushed a fix. You can also go into the config and set it to "sortal" (all lowercase).

    Using CI. I don't remember when it broke. I wont be able to say which build changed it. Does ring any bells when i'm talking about line 1 and the settings.yml? it will not accept "sortal" it only accept "[sortal]".

    What do you mean with "Most recent"? Latest release on DBO or latest from CI?

  • Avatar of ray0911 ray0911 Mar 18, 2015 at 00:49 UTC - 0 likes

    I switch to spout and update the sortal plugin. All my sortal line 1: "sortal" not "[sortal]" and it always worked that way. I see in the settings.yml there is a signContains: '[Sortal]' i changed this to 'Sortal' but it doesnt seem to have any effect. All my signs with line 1: "sortal" dont work. Any sign i create with line 1: "[sortal]" does. can you help me? We have 100's of sortal all over the place. there is no way i can update them all. Thanks for your help. I'm using the most recent build of sortal .

    Works 100% for me. I suggest you enable debug and check if signs.yml contains the locations and warps of your signs (do this after shutting down the server, the data gets saved on server shutdown).
