Adding Plugins
  • Bukkit, Spigot & BungeeCord Plugins

    Uploading your own plugin to the Spigot Resources section



    The resource section of the forums has many plugins and utilities that can be used with Bukkit, Spigot and Bungee servers.


    Adding your own plugin(top)


    In order to add your own plugin to the resources section, you will need a forum account. (Required, not optional)
    • Select "Add Resource".
    • Choose the category your plugin falls into.
    • You should have some text describing the plugin, including:
      • An accurate description of what the plugin does
      • A list of permissions that your plugin uses
      • A list of commands that your plugin uses
      • Setup information or configuration options
      • Requirements; if dependent on other plugins (differentiate between soft dependencies and dependencies)
    • You can upload a graphic logo for your plugin.
    • Select the correct category to put your plugin in
      • If it is for BungeeCord, put it in the Bungee section, etc.
      • This helps your users find the plugin, and know what it's made specifically for
    Once your resource has been created, users can:
    • Rate your plugin
    • Leave a review
    • Discuss your resource in its thread

    Plugin Rules(top)

    • Posting malicious resources is not allowed. Doing so will result in their removal and your account will be permanently suspended.
    • Posting someone else’s plugin or resource is not allowed. This includes minor edits such as configuration changes and code directly taken from tutorials / other plugins. The resource in question will be deleted.
    For further information on the rules of creating resources, please review the Spigot Rules.

    Premium Plugin(top)

    In order to list a premium plugin, you will need:
    • 80 posts + 20 positive ratings
    • 3 free resources
    • Two step verification enabled
    • An account which is at least 8 weeks old
    The plugin must be posted in the "premium" section on the forums. All premium plugins undergo an approval process before they will be publicly available.


    Basic Rules
    All premium resources are governed by the ruleset listed in the Spigot Forum Rules: http://www.spigotmc.org/wiki/spigot-rules/. In particular you should pay special note to the "Terms of Service" section. A lot of this is legal boilerplate however I would like to summarize it here so that we are absolutely crystal clear on things.
    • SpigotMC is not responsible for any resources submitted to our site.
    • Once a resource has been uploaded you are giving SpigotMC a permanent license to publish your resource in connection with these forums.
      • You retain all copyright over your resource.
      • SpigotMC staff will not distribute or use your resource for purposes other than validation and approval without first purchasing a copy.
    Content Removal
    Most of the guidelines relating to content removal are published in the above terms of service, however to recap.
    • SpigotMC is not responsible for any resources submitted to our site.
    • We reserve the right to remove any resources submitted for any reason without explanation.
    • We will do our best to expediently remove resources which are subject to good faith copyright notices.
      • In some cases where we do not believe infringement has occurred we will ask for a formal notice (DMCA or otherwise)
      • We will expediently remove any content listed in such a notice.
