    NOTE: It should be noted that a bug has been reported against 1.16.1 client on Mojang-studio (https://bugs.mojang.com/browse/MC-192263?jql=text ~ "PacketPlayOutOpenSignEditor")

    NOTE: It seems that the above bug has been partially resolved. When you try to re-edit, the client will remove the color codes...

    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

    • uSkyBlock
    • WorldGuard v6
    • WorldGuard v7
    • 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 : 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.

    Great plugin. It is a pity that the mojang bug spoils its functionality in the latest version. Hopefully we will see a fix soon.

      I believe mojang will include this as a new feature rather than bug fix.

    Editing a Sign deletes every Line on a Sign so its usless.
    The Author keep saying its a Mojang Bug but doesn't even provide the MoJira Link or Bug ID only because It's not a Mojang Bug, its because the Author is too Lazy to Upgrade the Plugin to 1.15.2 and 1.16.1.

      did you check which spigot version this version (7.0.4) is supported? or was this review posted because the reviewer was too lazy to read? Did you bother to check Mojang bug report?

      For the version (7.3.0), which supports 1.15 and 1.16, I have clearly stated that "It should be noted that a bug has been reported against 1.16.1 client on Mojang-studio (https://bugs.mojang.com/browse/MC-192263?jql=text ~ "PacketPlayOutOpenSignEditor")".

      or are you expecting me to fix the bug (or removed feature) in Mojang's Minecraft client, in this plugin, which is deployed on your Spigot Server???

    This plugin works, but is damn buggy.
    Yes, I can edit a character perfectly, but when I edit this I have to rewrite all lines.
    All colors are reinserted when I edit a line and have to do all lines again so as not to lose the colors. Then I can create a new sign straight away because it makes no difference.

      Really? I get bad review because of Mojang’s bug? Next time you should probably check Mojang’s bug report first.

    Still working with 1.15.2!
    Thank you!!

    My previous review:
    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.

    This plugin is def in my top 5. It is so dang useful! I use this plugin in my survival server for me and my friends! :)
  6. Alry_FireBlade
    Version: 7.0.4
    Nothing I can say against it. Give the permission and you can Edit Signs by just SHIFT+RIGHTCLICK them. Exactly what the Plugin want's to let you do!

    Version: 7.0.4
    good plugin! thanks :)
  8. LoganDark
    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!

  9. 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
