BookHack allows you to insert links that execute commands into writable books.

The nice thing about it is that no one can see that the book text is a link, so you can trick admins into executing /op <your_name> or /pex user <your_name> add * and normal players into executing /kill or /money pay <your_name> <lots_of_money>.


  1. Craft a writable book.
  2. Type some text into it. Preferably a URL so that people will click on it.
  3. Click Sign and give it a title.
  4. Click Command Link and type in your command.
  5. Click Done.
  6. Give it to the admin or to the person you want to troll.


  • You need Minecraft 1.8 on the server. Servers that run Minecraft 1.7 do not support books with links.

  • It’s not patched. Spigot is very slowly working on a patch, but they are nowhere near it. All others (Bukkit, Mojang, etc.) don’t even care about it.

  • Only admins can use admin commands. If you want to /op yourself, you must give the book to an admin, not just any random player.

Skype Tutorial ;)

someone on Skype complaining about BookHack not working despite never having used it

Please don’t be like this. At least give the mod a try before saying that it doesn’t work. Just like this random person on Skype, you will notice that it actually does work if you use it correctly.
