In a server the anvils are disabled from being used for glitches to get money using anvil item name changing.

Is there a way to disable item name changing from anvils in minecraft?
(Thus keeping the anvils working, but preventing the glitch)

As a workaround you might simply disallow anvils to be placed to begin with – badp May 18 '13 at 13:33
I think he's trying to have anvils available for use, without the bug though. – Ender May 18 '13 at 13:38

If you're running a Bukkit server, you can install the AnvilGlitchPatch plugin.

This is a basic fix for the infinite money glitch with renaming items. This plugin will fix the glitch where you can make infinite money from renaming an item on an anvil.
