    If a sign alread has line1 to line5 entered. If a user then types "/srm line3 new line 3 details"
    Then the sign will be updated as follows:

    1. Some text for line 1

    3. new line 3 details
    4. Some text for line 3
    5. Some text for line 4

    2. Open chat and type /srm file filename.txt
    The filename specified should be located in [/plugins/SignReadMore] folder
    e.g /plugins/SignReadMore/filename.txt

    Nice plugin.
    Works for me.
    However when I start craftbukkit I get the stupidly long constructor warning.
    Would be nice if you fixed that.

    I've been working with this.
    Would be nice if there was some sort of config so that only op's can use it.

    It would be nice if this worked with bookshefs too.

    bookshelves that are readable? and can have lots of text?


    i think you just solved a useless block

    What warning do you see? I don't see a warning when I load it up.

    Will add the config to the TODO list.

    Very easy for me to extend it to bookshelfs. Edit - Now included in v1.1.

  7. Confirmed - works with server 1.3. Awesome plugin! :)

    poster had already confirmed it....No need for you to "confirm" it....
  10. My comment was before the OP was updated. :/

    Well, I had it working before the 1.3 update, but now when I associate files with bookshelves or signs, they won't show through to the user. I get the "file associated" message, but it doesn't return anything when right-clicked afterward. The "line1", etc. commands work fine, though.

    Sounds like a bug, will look into it.

    Admin bug Fixed. Updated to V2.1
    The correct usage is: /srm file filename.txt

    I need to pose a question to the community: which permissions plugin should I support (seeing as their different implementations floating around)

    EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.

  13. I have a preference for Permissions (mainly for political reasons, but am also quite used to it, and enjoying the multiworld support). But a little birdy told me that there will be an official Bukkit permissions system within a few days - possibly by the weekend.

    Then again, some people might still use plugins, for whatever reasons, so maybe support for more than one system?

    This is great, now i can have mod help files in-game instead of directing users to other places :D

    I would like groupmanager since its built into essentials >.>
    an easy way to specify who/which group can read what is all i need.

    and can you add a random selection if you add multiple files.

    would it be possible for this to display pages like /help does in essentials?
    having more lines to work with would be nice :D

    Hello, I have been sent by my cmd prompt to ask you to post the update source for your plugin here. (Links to the CraftBukkitUpToDate plugin forum, apparently the dev implemented plugin updating)

    This plugin is fantastic for my server. Very easy to use!

    Feature Requests:
    Permissions/Group Manager Support for editing the signs.
    Color text support
    Wall mounted sign support. -I really need this!

    I'm not sure I want to support this. I don't think it will conform with the expectations of the majority
    --- merged: Feb 28, 2011 6:39 AM ---
    I don't think so..those are essentials help pages. I don't want to create a dependancy with other plugins unnecessarily.

    I've increase the line limit to 10 :) anything more than that will break the user experience. The in-game chat window has a max limit for 10 lines, more than that it starts cropping from the top.

    Added to TODO list
    Added in version 2.2 (Download latest)

    Permissions 2.4 please :)

    The pages concept like essentials is interesting, maybe you could port it over or add it in as an optional feature.
    Wish minecraft could popup a screen to display large text.

    edit: also latest version displays player_command error
  22. Except not really feasible in this case since there's no command input. Text is displayed on click. I guess you could just place multiple signs - "Rules: Page 1", "Rules: Page 2", "Rules: Page 3"

    You welcome. I've bumped it up to build #556

    Is there a way to change the item you get when editing the text? because it gives me a diamond sword, which does disappear after 1 it, but still hurts

    Hmm...I'm not sure what the alternative is..any suggestions?
