    Thanks for noting! I think I already fixed this issue in the version I'm working on but I'll check it anyway.

    Do you still have this problem with the newest CraftBukkit version? Btw, in the upcomming version there will be an feature available to preload worlds on startup, that will fix it.

    Hi Tim, thanks for this great plugin. I'm attempting to use it on my 1.3.1 server and I get spammed errors saying that Essentials generated an exception. I understand the plugin is still 1.2.5. Just letting you know, I'll post the errors in a little bit.

    Heya Tim, I'm starting up my new server late next week, mind if I ask how the development is going on the new version? I've been looking forward to it for ages, I know this is a hobby for you, so I'm not trying to bug you or anything, just curious.

    Essentails always causes problems like this with other plugins, btw I also really hate Essentials. Anyhow, I'll try to fix this in the upcomming version.

    Actually I can't say how long I think it is going to take anymore, sorry. But I hope I'm able to release it soon. I think I just tried to add too much functions in it at once.

    Thanks, today I didn't worked on it, but what I did is I updated one of the old versions, this version will work with 1.3.2 and most issues are fixed, this is just a temporary version to fix al the teleportation bugs and things. I'll release it tomorrow! Please note that this version doesn't contain all the new stuff, it's just a temporary update.

    Sorry guys, I don't know what happend. Like I said in my previous post I'll release a temporary update tomorrow, this is just a small update of the old version to fix most issues. This version woudn't contain all the new stuff I'm adding thought.

    UPDATE 0.2.5 - Little bugs fixed. Minecraft 1.3.2
    I released a new version of World Portal, World Portal 0.2.5. There are only a few bugs fixed, and World Portal does have fully support for minecraft 1.3.1servers now. This is just a little update, it doesn't contain all the planned stuff yet. It is just a temporary update, to fix all the teleportation and permissions problems on every 1.3.1 server.​

    I just released a little update. This update will fix the teleportation problems in 1.3. It also fixes some permissions problems and a few other little bugs. This version doesn't contain all the planned stuff yet, since it's a temporary update.

    Hey, I can work everything except from pressure plates, when I use pressure plates it doesn't spawn me where I want it to, usually underground or out in the open. How can I use a pressureplate so that it works normally like a signpost? I need help, baddd :(

    I do think I know what the problem is, but how I've to fix it.. Does the server say '...Moved to quickly...' in the console?

    no, it's now only when I am in creative mode that it does this..

    I really need your help on this one. I have searched the internet for a hour or so and i can't find this. The problem is that nothing happens when i press the button to teleport, it doesn't work with the other ones either. When i start up my server it says that the plugins\World Portal\World Portals.list not found then i tried creating it in there but nothing was better now! Can you please help because i don't know how to get this to work.

    I just discovered this same problem. I tried for about 4 hours to fix this problem, in every possible way but I can't get it to work. The only fix I can think of is to set the players creative mode to survival mode, teleport him and set it back again.
    The thing I'm still sure of is that it's only with pressure plates.

    At first update the plugin to the lastest version (You probably already did). Then make sure you also copy the folder inside the downloaded .zip file into your ../plugins folder. Then restart your server, does it work now? If it doesn't could you please send me your craftbukkit version info (/version in the console)

    Hi Tim Visee, i have the same problem with "File 'plugins\World Portal\World Portals.list' not found"
    Wenn i download youre file its only a .jar not a .zip-file!!!
    I can also only put the World Portal 0.2.5.jar into the "/plugins".
    Normaly by all other plugins that i know, this is the usual way. Than start server and the plugin create a new ordner like WorldPortal and here is the portal.list.

    Can you help me please?

    (temporary its fine, but when im log out all teleports are away, nothing saves. /wp save say he saved but he doesnt.)

    Ok. I have in google searched for WorldPortal.zip and find an older version with worldportal, i have only put the ordner "World Portal" in the /plugins and it works all fine.

    I think its working than you make a new ordner with name "World Portal" and inside a new (complete empty) file with name World Portals.list and start the server.

    Tim Visee, please fix the downloadlinks (jar/zip)

    Hello, yes I really hate bukkit now because they keep modifiing my files every time, that will break the file. Please download the newest .zip file from my website:

    Then copy both the .jar and the folder into your servers plugin folder, and it should work again.

    UPDATE 0.2.6 - Little updates. Fixed problem most people had.
    I released a new version of World Portal, World Portal 0.2.6. There are only a few bugs fixed, and one of the most important things is fixed now. Most people had problems installing World Portal the right way because of it's config files. Now it will finally generate it''s own config files if the don't exists. This will fix a problem a lot of users had. This is just a little update, it doesn't contain all the planned stuff yet.​

    I have a problem with the newest bukkit release that all portals will say "[WorldPortal] You dont have permissions to use this portal!". I am an OP myself and it still says this and I have given the permissions node to my default rank.

    Tim Visee

    What permissions system are you using? (Could you please also give me it's version number, maybe the link and the version number of Bukkit using the command /version)
  22. Offline


    /version is 1.3.2 R1.0 and permissions plugin is PermissionsEx. Its really weird it says I dont have permissions and Im an OP. The server IP is dustinmc.no-ip.org if u wanted to see it in action. Thanks

    Tim Visee

    Could you please also give me the version number of PermissionsEx (user the command /pex version)
  24. Offline


    The plugin is just a slight bit buggy on R1.0-B2377. PeX version 1.19.3

    /gamemode 1 and use the portal (got a pressure plates set up) end up popping out of another 'outgoing trigger/portal' near the others placed out. ie I dont go to my destination but to another pressure plate near this one.

    /gamemode 0 and poof they working as intended.

    not sure if it was reported it not since didnt see any bugs listed... other then that its nice simple and straight forward.

    Include the other command in help far as I can see only /wp is listed and /wp ? does nothing.

    Addendum after looking back on more posts about PeX issues:

    I had issues with pex as well...but.. and Im hoping this isnt a big issue.. because Im totally new to the perms thing and its for a OP.

    /pex group Admins add *

    on-top of my only entry: permissions.* then all the commands worked.

    Well the creative teleportation fail was already reported haha, by more than 100 people. Everytime I'm trying to write a fix for it, but now I can't find any solution. I'm very sorry for it.
    About the suggestion, I've to say the following:
    I'm fully rewriting the whole plugin, it takes a LOT of time! But the upcomming big update will include everything you can imagine. Even portal cooldown, mutliple inventory's, a lot of new commands, ability to give one specific portal an additional permission node and WAY MORE. In this version there's a HUGE help command system thing with a lot of explanation and things, so that will be fine haha.

    About the permissions, I don't fully understand what you meant, but don't you just mean the '*' permission node.

    Heh I figured as much it was reported but thanks for the reply...but dont get me wrong after finally able to get it right Im loving it also was anything reported about 'direction' either not working as intended either?
    but back on subject about the perms... and dont worry its likely just me not understanding the whole perms system for this game yet (as others dont have any included permission nodes either) but the list.txt file should give an idea of what I was refering to. (I hope)

    Sucks... Very buggy, which makes me kinda unable to have multiworlds right now, which I need. Ya know, I need to build the map for my server and there would be tons of building if it's about the farms and region-claiming places. When I teleport through the portals, it takes me to a random place on the map instead of the original spawn on the map.

    There currently is only one bug, which is caused by bukkit it self, so I'm not able to fix it yes. It's this randomteleport destination, it is only caused when you teleport in creative mode with a pressure plate, it doesn't happen with other objects or game modes. Also, you can fix it when you make a 1 depth hole and put the pressure plate in there.

    Oh, thanks, I was afraid it'd happen to the players on survival. Now I know why.
