    Possible Error Find?
    Use of the command < /wp info > disables "Remove" mode.
    On execution of < /remove > , Disabling and Enabling of "Remove" mode works fine.
    Intended or Accidental?

    Np man, always good to help out someone who has helped you. :)
    Feel free to join our server when we get it up and running...
    Thanks, Flare.

    Hey, Thank you for your reply.
    I'll defenitly check the server out today haha, if it's running already (If I didn't understood it the wrong way)

    About bugtester, do you mean you want to be a bug tester or something? That would be cool, but, most of the time I won't ask bugtesters first to test the project, I just upload it when I tested it myself, but of course you could test the released versions ;)
    Maybe, later on I'll also release developement builds, you could defenitly test these ones.

    Sounds good! Sorry the server isn't up yet... Like, we're still building it (It's a Tekkit server btw) so it won't be up for a little.
    I'll be happy to test any builds you can offer. Console, Command, S/C Mode & Bugs and ohter Things. I will basically try to 'Bug-Up' World Portal to your benefit. :p
    If you want to continue this PM me, as it's probably easier to send Messages.

    ok I have GroupManager as my permissions plugin & I can't find your permissions in the GroupManager files or any of the plugin files. Is GroupManager not compatible with WorldPortal for permissions???Or am I blind & keep on missing it???Or do I have to add the permissions myself???

    Tim Visee

    Do you have Essentials group manager? or just Group Manager?
    Group Manager isn't supported anymore. It's outdated and doesn't work properly anymore... Sorry.

    ... got my own server going on my pc... using Bukkit... ran across your plugin and it is exactly what I need for me and my friends! I am running MC 1.4.6. Installed World Portal. The problem is that it works, sort of... it tells me it's enabled when I /wp create BUT nothing happens when I right click. Am I completely missing something here? I see that these posts are old, could it be that WP won't work with 1.4.6? I'm sure it's something easy. Please let me know. Thanks!

    I should be more specific: It works but I can't seem to figure out how to use a pressure plate. My plan requires the use of pressure plates. The plugin is awesome I might add!

    Hey Tim,
    is there a plan for a WP update so the wooden buttons can be used too?
  15. Offline


    I enter /wp create and then I do a right-click on the pressure plate. However I had to have my hands empty, otherwise it wouldn't do it. Both pressure plates worked fine, wood and stone. I saw somewhere that pressure plates might be buggy, not sure if that's still the case though. That was quite some time ago.

    Thanks! Will give it a try now.....

    ok, i can link the pressure plate BUT it just TP's me right back. I think it might be because you never step off the plate.... makes a continuous loop... any suggestions?

    OK. I put the plate at the bottom of a 2 block hole. It works! I stay were I was to TP to. This works out great because my plans require that you step into a hole and "fall" into the place you want to go. Too bad you can't just walk onto the plate. Thanks for your help dispereo... hopes these threads help someone else!

    Sorry about the late reply. I'm very busy. I'm currently working on a 1.4.6 patch. I'm working on a huge plugin called 'SafeCreeper' for example, I have to finish a few websites and things like that, that's what makes me busy :(. Anyhow, I hope I'm able to release a patch today. You'll be notified in game (update checker) once the update is available. It should be available on this page by then.

    About the problem that you have to right click with your hand, I'll take a look at this.

    About the problem that it teleports you right back, that's caused by Creative Mode, once you turn it off it won't happen anymore. This issue is caused by Bukkit itself, sadly, and I didn't found a way yet to fix this.

    Wooden buttons will be added in the patch/update.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks Tim! I've got everything working now. My plans are going fully operational! Your plugin is awesome! On my server we have a "home base" and I built a teleport room to take us to where ever we want to go (ie each person's homestead). You step in the room, the lights flash in sequence, you step into the appropriate hole and poof! What I really like is that it works for everybody else. They don't have to install CraftBukkit OR your plugin. Since I'm the server owner.....
    I'm going to check out everything else you have done, I'm very impressed!

    about the right-clicking thing. Like dispereo said, you have to have an empty hand and you activate by using the "use". Not right-clicking. Unless you have your controls set up so right click IS use. lol
    Perhaps just a re-wording of that would help since everybody sets up their controls differently.

    Thank you, your room should be awesome!
    Btw, about my plugins. You should really check 'SafeCreeper' out, it can block creeper,s enderman, ghasts from destroying, give mobs equipment, give mobs effect, and you can control almost EVERYTHING about mobs. You can even make sheeps burb when they eat grass (with burp sound), or you can make zombies revieve other zombies which died. etc.

    Tim Visée

    I know what the problem is, I had it in a other plugin of mine too.

    Sadly, I'm going away now for a little while. I hope I could finish World Portal in the evening, to release the patch/update.

    Here I have a dev build of 0.2. 7, the new version of World Portal, for Bukkit-1.4.6-R0.1. This version is compatible with wooden buttons, these wooden buttons CAN be trigered using arrows or fishingrods for example!

    Please note that the bug with portal selecting, and teleporting ins creative isn't fixed yet, this will be in the final release of 0.2.7. I've to go to bed now, thats why I release this snapshot.

    Funny you're saying that, I had the same issues with buttons, but only if I put the port destination right in front of another button. The chances were 50/50 that after clicking the teleport button, that I also activated the teleport button at the destination. Therefore i started to have some sort of teleporter rooms where I always arrive and then have to walk somewhere first to activate other buttons. However I wouldn't know why that's happening when you step on a pressure plate.

    Thank you Tim, this is much appreciated. Good luck with your other projects! :)

    Hi Do you know how I could restrict players going through certain portals?
    I have the permission worldportal.use.* and yet players still aren't able to access any portals. However when I use the permission worldportal.* they are able to access every portal. Any help? thanks :)
