    vk2gpz, (libraryaddict : author of SignMagic)
    Just put EditableSign.jar in the plugins folder.

    You can Sneak + Right-click to edit the sign which is already placed! (only if you have "editablesign.edit" permission and WorldGuard allows you to "USE" or "INTERACT")

    You can also edit Essentials' signs ([Sell], [Buy], [Disposal], etc.)

    This plugin is based on libraryadict's previous work (SignMagic). He has been contacted and was ok about adding 1.8 support as well as WorldGuard support.

    The support for the plugin is provided here.

    • /es : toggle between editable and non-editable mode
    • /es help : displays a help menu
    • /es reload : reloads config.yml
    Permission Node:
    • editablesign.edit : allows a player to edit a sign
    • editablesign.colorsign : allows a player to use colored sign.
    • editablesign.admin: bypasses the cooldown restriction
    • editablesign.<region_name> : allows a player to edit a sign in the <region_name> world guard region.
    Supported region protection plugins:
    • ASkyBlock
    • BSkyBlock
    • Factions

    • OwnershipCheck (Since SpigotMC does not allow me to release this resource on here, please contact me to purchase this resource.) : when this module is enabled, the sign will remember who placed it (without rely on an external data storage) and only the owner of the sign can edit.
    • Untouchable : You can specify keywords to indicate non-editable signs.
    • Relocate (Since SpigotMC does not allow me to release this resource on here, please contact me to purchase this resource.) : This add-on will allow you to break the sign you wish to relocate and simply place it again at wherever you wish to relocate it to.

    My original review said it no longer worked as previous versions.
    This is untrue. I did not know at the time that the plugin does not update it's own config. Once I removed the old config and let it generate a new one, besides feeling like I was back in 2012, it works wonderfully again!

    The only issues I have with the plugin, and two aren't with the plugin itself, but supporting it:
    - The plugin don't auto-update the config with newer versions
    - The tutorial video is in German, would be nice if an English one were posted
    - To get support, users must sign up for yet another support site, would be nice if the author would use github issues where most projects already host support, and most users who give a damn already have accounts.

    Other than that, it's a good plugin. My players love it! Especially the creative roleplay kids who are constantly changing RP character boards. It lets me see who edited a sign, with what text, and is a great bolster to LogBlock for handling issues.

    And yes, this is a review, not a bug report, not a request for support.
    The only reason it don't have 5 stars is due to the lack of config updating and making me believe it broke with 1.14.

    good plugin! thanks :)

    Version: 7.0.3
    The logs get longer and longer with every /reload... lol. But other than that, this plugin works quite well and I'd definitely recommend it!

  4. Alter-Ego
    Version: 7.0.2
    Sort of hard to rate consistently since previous versions keep getting removed, it would be good if you kept them for backups or even to look back on your progress to see how far the plugin has gone, you would get a lot more positive reviews and feedback too but I'm sure there's a gud reason why u keep removing them.

    Giving 5 stars for quality, effort, support and consistency with fixing bugs and keeping things up to date, well done!
    Plugin has come a long way all efforts are much appreciated, just another one of VK's amazing projects.

    Version: 7.0.1
    probably one of the best plugins for 1.14 since it pairs really well with the new vanilla sign editing
  6. Stormeyes
    Version: 7.0.1
    Thank you for the plugin ! , Works great (1.14.3) i use it for staff only so not tested on player base

    Plugin works well. Easy to understand configuration. Would recommend over other sign editing plugins due to the fact that you are able to actually edit a sign in a sign menu. Without losing the data that was on it before. Plus you are able to use the arrow keys, so no need to delete a whole line to correct a sentence.
    I used the support site of the developer. Support was good.
    Developer reminds me of Ron Swanson
    Had an issue but with advice from the developer and a couple hours of work i managed to get it to work. This plugin turned out to not be the issue.
    Defenitely use this one if you are looking for a simple but effective sign editing plugin.

    Having issues using this plugin at all! I used to use it a couple of years ago and it worked perfectly, but for some reason it's not working now. I have given myself the necessary permissions and I toggled /es but when I sneak+right click on a sign, nothing happens. Using on 1.14.

      you should have sought help before writing a review. I don't deal with people who uses the review as ransom.

    Hey, really cool plugin! It works very fine! :) But one thing I miss is a tutorial on how the blacklist works because I don't understand when I have to use "/" oder "\".

      They are just standard regular expressions. And they are not specific nor special to this plugin. You should be able to specify any words you wish to block using regent.
