I'm playing Minecraft, and I'm customizing a village I found. I'm trying to give nametags to all the villagers, but when I try, all I get is the trading menu. I've heard of the Nether portal method, but I'm afraid of the villager accidentally walking into the portal. Any other methods?
This works on all versions (1.0 - 1.10.2). Don't be scared of teleporting into the nether; just do it quickly.
Create a nether portal.
Place the villager front of you.
Go to the Nether.
Switch item to name tag.
Return to the Overworld.
Stand inside Nether portal without moving.
Apply the name tag on the villager.
Quickly push the villager to prevent it from going to the nether.
It’s easy, you don’t need a portal at all. I was gonna use a portal and was dragging the villager over to the portal with a boat, but then I noticed if you hover over the villager with a name tag in your hand, you can actually name the villager! I tried this on my iPad in Minecraft PE and it works every time!
