I have Bukkit on my SMP server, and world portal so I can have multiple worlds. The problem is, when I build a nether portal, pig zombies spawn next to it, but when I go in it, it just plays the spiral animation and doesn't teleport. I think it has to do with my server having World Portal installed. (And yes, allow-nether=true in

What other plugins do you have (if any) and what version of CraftBukkit are you running? – tombull89 Feb 16 '13 at 14:19
I have CommandSigns, Vault, WelcomeMessage, and WorldEdit. I am running craftbukkit 1.4.7-R1.0 – DankMemes Feb 16 '13 at 16:19

It sounds like you have no Nether world for your new world. World Portals takes over all portal and other-world generation, so you need to tell the server to make a Nether so that Nether portals will go to it. Basically, you need to follow this sequence of actions:

  1. In the command console, type /wp create
  2. Right click on a sign and type [your-current-world-name-here]_nether (e.g. if your world was called 'Myworld' then you would type Myworld_nether)
  3. When asked for a generator type type nether

It should now create a new Nether world, and your Nether portals should work!

To the editor: It is not caused by having the World Portal plugin installed; when you create a new world it doesn't create the nether worlds along with it (except on a vanilla server, but multiworld works differently there) unless it is done by telling the server a different world name. (So it is done if you use a multiworld plugin for bukkit) – hedgehog1029 Oct 7 '13 at 18:58
