# How do I use the /tellraw command in minecraft 1.10 [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

I want to make a map but the /tellraw command won't work in Minecraft 1.10, not 1.9 or 1.8 just 1.10 it used to work perfectly in 1.8 as:

/tellraw @p {text:"what ever you want",color:red,bold:true,underlined:true,clickEvent:{action:open_url,value:"a url"}}


How can I fix this?

Starting with 1.9, the parts of the game that you use JSON (/tellraw, /title, and signs) needs to be actually JSON compliant, so you need to use quotation marks on actions too. This should work:
/tellraw @p ["",{"text":"my text","color":"red","bold":true,"underlined":true,"clickEvent":{"action":"open_url","value":"url"}}]

• @Unionhawk /title and sign text also requires strict JSON. Book pages have yet to conform but they eventually will. – Skylinerw Jul 1 '16 at 2:14
