Hi, so I tried making formatted signs. I don't know how to insert this so the quickest way was to copy and paste it. It wouldn't let me. How am I supposed to make formatted signs?

You can easily color and format texts on signs using a plugin called EssentialsX. Install this plugin, Stop your server and then Start it back up.

Once you have EssentialsX installed, you can go to File Manager tab of your server and then open the file located at /plugins/Essentials/config.yml. Once you have this file open, navigate to this section of the file:


Take a look at the #- color option. It's disabled (commented).

Remove the # exactly before - color.

This is how it should look:


Once that's done, Save your file and head back in-game.

Type in /ess reload.

Now you should be able use to color text on signs. Use & instead of § since it's easier to type and easier to understand/read.

Here is an example: &c&lHello.

Hope that helps, let me know if you have any other problems
