So, my group and I are setting up an initial spawn room for a server we are creating. The room is like an introduction area, with important information. After the player has read all the signs and stuff, there are two signs (that will have the same commands) that basically do these few things:

a. Teleport the player from the initial spawn to Hub.

b. Transfer the player from the Group Manager group "Default" to "Marine" (basically the base rank for all players)

The main reason the player changes groups is because Marine will have different stats than the Default players. (ie. prefixes, spawn, sign perms, etc.)

However, the problem is, we can't make it so that de-opped players in the Default group can use ServerSigns. I am in the Developers group with NO permissions at all, but I can still use signs even when de-opped.

I know there is the serversigns.use.* thing, but I have no idea where to input this. We have tried doing /mangaddp Default serversigns.use.* but this does not work. Help is appreciated! Note that I don't really understand the GroupManager plugin too well, so please be patient with me. :)

  • I never used group manger I always used pex just cuz I liked it a lot better... But basicly you just need to add it in to their group manger group

  • I could talk to the Owner about pex. Is it Bukkit compatible? If so, could you add a link?

  • I believe so, since I ran it on spigot witch is just a modified version of bukkit, but here is the link dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/permissionsex

  • Thanks! I will run this by the owner, and test out some commands. I'll get back to this thread if I continue to have trouble.

  • To add it it would be /pex group marine add serversigns.use.* , but best of luck let me know how it goes

To do this, when doing the /svs add put /svs add *[command] and not /svs add /[command]. It will allow all players to use the ServerSign.

To make a special sign do /svs setperm [perm] and only players with the -serversigns.use.perm can use it. (the perm is what you typed in the setperm command)

The first command requires no perms else than serversigns.use and it will even execute commands like /give or /promote.

Oh, and if you want to make a sign that promotes a user (or does something to the user) who clicked on the sign you do

/svs add *promote [player]

You write the [player] thing with brackets, instead of the username. It puts the clicking player's name as it.
