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.
