World Portal is a really useful and simple to use plugin to make portals in your server. Players could use the portals to teleport to another location or even to another world. This is also really useful when you have a large server so players could go to other places them self really easy. With World Portal you could even generate and teleport to other worlds, very smootly with no problems. You could make portals using, buttons, pressure plates, switches and even more. World Portal is the ultimate solution for portals, and even for multi world mangement.
