    !! This plugin requires BKCommonLib to be installed. !!

    Builds for 1.7.2 R0.1/R0.2 can be found here


    Description
    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. :)

    /variable setticker [args]
    Sets a ticker mode for a variable to animate the text. Arguments:
    /variable setticker [left/right/blink/none] [interval]
    /variable setticker [interval] [left/right/blink/none]
    /variable setticker [left/right/blink/none]
    /variable setticker [interval]​
    /variable delete (force)
    Deletes the variable if it is not used. If force is specified, the variable is removed anyhow.​

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

    Code (Text):
    # 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!)
    sign:
        ticker: NONE
        value: This is a regular message you can set and is updated only once.
    test:
        tickerInterval: 3
        ticker: LEFT
        value: 'This is a test message being ticked from right to left. '
    Placeholders
    Signlink supports the PlaceholderAPI plugin in both directions. This means that you can use Signlink to display placeholders on signs, or use signlink variables in other plugins that support placeholders.
    • You can use signlink variables in other plugins by prefixing it with sl_. For example, %sl_time% will display the time variable.
    • Adding placeholder names to the 'autoUpdateVariables' list in SignLink's config.yml will make them work on signs, with the same name.
    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):

    Code (Text):
        signlink.addsign:
            description: Allows you to build signs containing variables
            default: op
        signlink.toggleupdate:
            description: Allows you to set if signs are being updated or not
            default: op
