Development builds are no longer available after 15-10-2014 00:00

Plugin Name: SignLink

Bukkit: 1.7.2 R0.1/R0.2

Version: 1.34


This plugin acts as a bridge between plugins and signs to easily display text on signs. Instead of entering commands, clicking the sign, or any other routine plugins could use, players can enter 'variables', key values starting (and ending) with %, to show information at that spot.

It also includes features no other plugin is needed for, such as custom text and ticker values you can set in values.yml. Signs are stored on file, they survive reloads and server restarts.

A video says 1000 times more words than a picture. :)

A lot more information on the WIKI page



The linkedsigns.txt contains information of where signs are located. The values.yml sets the (standard) usable keys.

# In here you can set default values for this plugin.
# The ticker property can be LEFT, RIGHT or NONE and sets the direction message is 'ticked'.
# tickerInterval sets the amount of ticks (1/20 of a second) are between the ticker update.
# The value is the thing to display or tick.
# To use colors in your text, use the § sign followed up by a value from 0 - F.
# Example: §cRed to display a red colored 'Red' message.
# You can find all color codes on the internet (they may use & there, ignore that!)
    ticker: NONE
    value: This is a regular message you can set and is updated only once.
    tickerInterval: 3
    ticker: LEFT
    value: 'This is a test message being ticked from right to left. '

Permissions and commands

Use /togglesignupdate to turn sign updating on or off, just in case someone made a huge amount of updating signs that causes lag. Two permission nodes (Bukkit permissions):

        description: Allows you to build signs containing variables
        default: op
        description: Allows you to set if signs are being updated or not
        default: op
