Signs - The simplest sign editing plugin

This plugin allows to edit sign by right clicking them with an configurable item. Many protection plugins are supported.


When a new version is available, it'll be downloaded and installed automatically.
You can turn off this option in the config

Edit a sign

To edit a sign, you only have to right click it with the item set in the config (default: INK_SAC:0).

Write on a sign wall

To write over multiple signs, you have to left click one of the signs with a book (book and quill or written book) and the content of the book will be transfered to the signs.
I still don't know how to deal with the displayed char amount depending on the char width (since 1.8)

Copy and Paste

Rightclick a sign with the copy-item to copy its text, leftclick another sign to paste it again
Note: When the CopyCosts/PasteCosts option is enabled, copying/pasting will only work if you have one Copy.Ink in your inventory

Note: WorldGuard protection are normally also supported, whenever a player can place blocks he can edit signs. If OnlyInOwnedRegion is enabled, a player can only edit signs if he's owner or member in the region. This means also that, when no region is set, he can't edit signs

Multi language support

Currently supported languages: English German Cantonese by o0smallku0o
Signs is coming with a multi language feature.
If you want to override the default messages, place a properties file called messages_[language]_[country]_[variant].properties (both the country and the variant are optional) in the signs folder, and write your own messages there.
The language code must be the same, as you've specified in the config.

If you find errors in one of the translations or if a language code is wrong, tell me that.
If you've translated it into another language and you want to share your translation, send me a pm.

Support for other plugins

Fully supported are the protections from:

- WorldGuard
- Towny
- QuickShop

Also NoCheatPlus is hooked in to prevent it's "AutoSign protection" from blocking Signs
