    Im not gonna try it since i dont know if it will charge me but I think this is a very good idea and should definitely be moved to official plugin list.

    It shouldn't charge you, they count as normal texts so you'll only get charge if you go over your monthly limit. Perhaps use the email option instead?

    thank you, im hoping people see this plugin as im sorry most admins would want to use it. Im thinking about adding the ability to text back or send commands to your server through text but i think it would use up too much bandwidth and other resources from checking for new mail every 5 or so minutes

    If I try to send an EMail from an player account to an Admin-Email I get the error "You do not have the Permissions to do that" but the group of the Player has the Permissions to send texts.
    What can I do to fix this?

    I have unlimited texting, so I'm excited. If you have an API for it, I'm sure some anti-griefing/cheating plugins would integrate with it.

    Also, for player logging in, You should have it take a time when they log out. If they log back within like 2 minutes, then don't send the text message. A lot of people tend to leave and rejoin quickly.

    That is a great idea! I'm going to contact some developers and find out if the would implement text alerts if I made an api. As for the login message, I will add that as part of the anti spam feature

    I'll have to test this out ...

    Could you provide for Canadian providers?

    Rogers / Fido / Bell / Telus

    Cool, cool.
    In using it, it works fine functionally wise, but theres ALOT of server lag when someone sends a message. Also, if someone is watching you and you log in, it takes longer to log it. For the logging in, you may want to make some sort of timer task that sends the message later so that it doesn't keep them from logging in right away.

    Edit: Another idea: Possibly a way to text a certain number (the server's IP?) to send a message from the console to the server (like the "say [message]" option)
  11. Add support for French phone providers? I used to live in America... but I had to move to France D: Anyways, try to add SFR? It's french.

    Also, this is an amazing plugin. You are purely epic god.

    i can easly see this being an error log to be accesed from afar. if you can make it so that u have emails with names such as error log so it would be like /text errorlog (email for error log) error message or even just having a txt file for a log would i Imagen would be easy to convert

    Doesn't work with permission 2.5.6

    Ill try to see how much bandwidth it uses.

    In order to do this it would have to continuously check for new emails, might cause lag but im going to try to add this

    Added all the requested carriers, they will be in the next update later today.

    hopefully i can add this but im not sure how to actually read the errors that are thrown (proly would have to be done in craftbukkit or the plugin itself)

    Why not update to 2.7?

    I beg you: Telfort

    I'm sorry but Telfort will not support this, perhaps use an email address instead
  17. Offline


    Why not? :( Soo I can only send Email from in the game? Not text messages?
    Or can I send text messages with my email from in the game?
  18. Offline


    you can send text messages in game but not receive them on your Telfort phone. Most cell phone providers outside the US/Canada can not receive texts from an email address. you can try sending me an email at [email protected] from your cell phone. but if it doesn't go through then it won't work with this plugin.

    Any way you can add the popular ipod app textfree to this list? It has a number, but its not really a carrier.

    You can try sending me an email at [email protected]from your cell phone. but if it doesn't go through then it won't work with this plugin.
    And if you have an ipod touch/iphone you could also use email for free

    Ok, soo it may work even if you didn't add the provider to the plugin?
  22. Offline


    It doesn't send to emails, it sends to numbers, and it can receive. I don't get notified from the emails, easier this way.
  23. Offline


    Give yourself the - '*' permission.
    That gives yourself every command and everything available.

    I need O2 Germany :) Great idea mate!!!

    I don't see why it wouldn't work, isn't the game sending it to my the phone number that is connected to the app?
  28. Offline



    I am really excited about this plugin.

    Can you please add support for Rogers, Telus and Bell? All of them are Canadian and are the big three providers.
  29. Offline


    no, you must have misunderstood me.

    O2 has been added (again will be in update later tonight)

    make sure you are using spaces b4 the node and not tabs
