I have two tellraw commands

/tellraw Froggygamingmc {text:"Thanks For Using",color:red}


/tellraw Froggygamingmc {text:"Vend U.S.A.",color:green}

but whenever I execute them it says

Invalid json: malformed JSON at line 1 column 3.

Does anyone know how I can get the /tellraw command to work?


Try to add add " to setting, like:

1.9 Syntax:

/tellraw Froggygamingmc {"text":"Thanks For Using","color":"red"}

1.8 Syntax:

/tellraw Froggygamingmc {text:"Thanks For Using",color:red}

  • To elaborate: Starting with 1.9, JSON-formatted text, e.g. /tellraw, signs, and books, is required to be actually JSON-compliant, thus requiring strings to be enclosed by "". Other data tags are still parsed leniently. – MrLemon Jun 5 '16 at 17:48
