The command block has been hinted at for being released in the creative inventory in update 1.5.1 ace25ace 10:26, 6 January 2013 (eastern time)
It should be called the Command Firer, or something. :) Sonickyle 20:56, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

Is it just me, or do some command block teleportations teleport players one block away from the real coordinates? Willco2 20:45, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
this is because commands using coordinates (eg. "/tp" or "/spawnpoint") add 0.5 to integers, like usual. To clarify, the number -33 would be interpreted as -32.5, and the number 187 would be interpreted as 187.5. -taken from command block page.
Is there any way to teleport to a player's spawnpoint? Aaronfranke 01:57, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
Be careful with teleportation command blocks. I was trying to set the command block to teleport all players to the space above the command block, but didn't realize that "tp @a ~ ~1 ~" was not the way to do it until after I had connected said command block to a comparator pulser and started rising into the sky. Fortunately for me I was using snapshot 13w27a and could use "/summon PrimedTNT ~5 3 ~5" (this was on the Classic Flat preset) to blow up the redstone powering the block. 184.108.40.206 00:41, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

yeah what is the name of the command to enable/disable command blocks in smp (cause my server was created in 1.3.1) thank you if you answer Riothegod 03:44, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
 Some commands with the command block
Here are some commands I'v seen used with the command block which could be included into the main page at some point.
Note that <pra> refers to either @p, @r or @a.
|Name||What it does||Command|
|Teleport||Teleports to coordinates||tp <pra> x y z|
|Set Spawn||Sets a spawn point with coordinates||spawnpoint <pra> x y z|
|Say||Says something||say <the message you want it to say>|
|Time||Sets the time||time set <tick number>|

For everyone using teleportation, the teleported area must be a valid spot and not "inside" a block. 220.127.116.11 19:20, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
I can't use @p, @r, or @a in a say command to show the player(s) names w/o spaces on both sides. Here's an example: Working: /say Thanks, @p . Not Working: /say Thanks, @p. I don't know if there's a problem with my PC, or if others are having this same problem. 18.104.22.168 16:48, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
 Mod commands
If there's any mods for 12w32a, or future updates, I think it would be good trivia as to whether or not commands added by mods (ex: SPC, SMP Bukkit plugins) would work with the command blocks. This would let map makers know if they can use commands from their mods such as Worldedit in use of adventure maps, or if they can't, as well as say a mod is needed to play an adventure map to its full potential as structured. Funky3000 03:16, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
- That info belongs on the individual mods' pages, not here. 「ディノ奴千？！」? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 03:53, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
- I'm not talking each individual mod. I'm wondering if the command block can actually use mod commands in general. Not talking specifics, those couple were just examples. There are many mods out there that add commands, it would be good trivia to know if the command block can only use vanilla commands or not be able to use "chocolate" commands. This is also a good place for such generalized information, it only involves commands and besides, wouldn't want to crash the game, would we? ;) Or worse, be the cause of a crash because we didn't put information where it is centered upon AKA use of command blocks? Funky3000 04:30, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
- It seems not to work with /pg clearPortals all, from the portalgun mod, but it may be that it will work with commands that don't need a player context.
- I have tested one or two mods with this, it doesn't seem to respond. Also, certain mods like spc which replaces a command or two seems to break almost all regular commands.--22.214.171.124 18:58, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

Someone tell me what happened and how can I get it back?

Hey there, this is Tasaiala, I made a MCEdit schematic that lets you edit the gamerules commands using command blocks. This way it's prebuilt, and you don't have to set it up yourself. Just paste the .schematic into your world! Video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r510tsosKlY Download: http://www.mediafire.com/?6ve861rv2fe3jhp

 Dinnerbone documented it
 No more string limit?
I realized that in vanila weekly snapshot 12w38b, that string limit has been removed (or extended. Either way it got larger than 32) for Command Block. I'm not sure and want to see if someone can confirm one. If then, we should add about it on article. Kevin J Rattman 00:42, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

 enable-command-block server properties problem
evrytime i enable the command block in the server properties file (i use Bukkit) the server will start but then crash after a second. It doesnt crash when i disable command blocks, but i need to enable it. Any help?

 Gamerule doMobSpawning
Does this gamerule disable all spawner blocks as well as random spawning of mobs in low light? (Is this "peaceful" mode?)
Also, slight clarification please. Does "False" = no spawning, while "True" = allow spawning, or the other way around? 220.127.116.11 05:41, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
- If doMobSpawning is set to false, all random mob spawning is disabled. This affects animals, squid, and bats, as well as hostile mobs. Monster spawners, animal spawning when chunks generate, village iron golems, and any other method of creating mobs are not affected. -- Orthotope 08:25, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

 /give command
At the start of the page it says:
Only players with sufficient privileges to use the 'give' command.
What "sufficient privileges"? Emerald267 16:07, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
- That typically means Op status on a server. There are custom servers out there with setups that grant/deny specific privileges with different levels of abilities, but for straight vanilla servers, there's just normal users and ops.

 NaN trick
A neat thing I found: If you assign a position a value, (eg x=), but don't say what position, it will teleport you anywhere. I have only tested this when I have a mod installed, but if someone would confirm, that would be nice. I used:
tp @p[y=240,x=,z=,r=3] -1134 233 -979
Pokechu22 01:15, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
EDIT: the above command actually always teleports, regardless of your position, but if you use
tp @a[y=240,x=NaN,z=NaN,r=2] -1134 233 -979
it works. Pokechu22 01:26, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
Why does Mojang have the server default to disabling command blocks? It seems unnecessary, as it is a extra step for maps, and most people aren't worried about the command block. Pokechu22 01:53, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
Because anybody who doesn't change the .properties file after creating a server would otherwise have the possibility of another admin/mod/op figuring it out and griefing. If someone actually plans on using the block, it's only a small effort to change the line in the .properties file anyway. --Mrkddsmn 23:32, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
 /kill command works
On the page they said "some commands have been disabled..." well one of them is the command /kill. without knewing this info i tried it out on my server and i managed to get this working.

- Testing in single-player, /kill does not work. Servers often do not disclose which mods, if any, they are using, so unusual behavior should always be confirmed in single-player, or at least on a clean, completely unmodded server. -- Orthotope 07:09, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

/kill @p hooked up to a rapid pulser worked for me in a single player LAN server... although we had to edit the map to remove it because of the pulser... not the brightest idea, but I wasn't expecting /kill to work.
 Help me!
My brother has been kind enough to hack my worlds and put Command Blocks on all of them, ones I've had for a year and have irreplaceable builds on them, and set the command block on a repeating circuit and has me teleported far away. How can I fix this? Is there some other command that I can use on a new CB to stop the other one? He set it to /tp @a, so what can I do? 188.8.131.52 21:48, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
If you can host a tiny server on localhost, disable command blocks in server.properties, then find the block and destroy it! 184.108.40.206 17:44, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

You need to make sure command blocks are in the server.properties file in your server directory. Change the true 'enable-command-blocks=' to false. If that's already false, then you could backdate your MC to a version without command blocks so that upon loading the world all command blocks are deleted. However, this will also delete other blocks that were not in that version so be careful. Good luck! --18.104.22.168 12:30, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

 @-codes should be moved to Server Commands
Players (and probably server console) can also use @a, @p and @r, so it would make more sense to move information about @-codes to Server Commands. (Tested in vanilla 1.5.1, creative singleplayer with cheats enabled) 188.8.131.52 18:56, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
 Tripwire activation?
Regarding this paragraph: "Considering its great power and possibilities, it can't be normally crafted. Currently, it is not available in the creative mode inventory either. Only players with sufficient privileges to use the 'give' command: /give <player_name> 137 can obtain the block. Furthermore, only players which are in Creative mode and are also an operator on the server are able to edit and successfully save the command of the block." Once placed, a command block is indeed "pickable" in Creative mode with middle-click. Should this be added, since a player who may not necessarily have access to the /give command can still get one if they are in Creative and one already exists in the world? AdmiralMemo 05:16, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
 Doesn't recognize that I'm OP in Creative.
I used to be able to place and edit command blocks on my server, the old command blocks still work. I'm trying to place and edit new ones, but every time I put in the command it says "Must be an opped player in creative mode" which I am. I am the only OP on my server, and I am always in creative mode. Does anyone know what the problem might be? --Putchute 00:59, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
 What does the @a code turn into?

-Hey, it's because the command blocks, if successful, will keep the comparator on. So the first time, both command blocks will activate, but the second time, the first command block will activate but not the second unless the first command block failed (possibly by not finding the player it is looking for or the player not having a minimum requirement of a specific score or level), in which case the comparator would turn off and so the second command block could be activated if the comparator turned on again. So there lies the problem. The command block remembers if the last time it was activated output a successful command. I am currently working on a suggestion to fix this, but for now, after a lot of experimenting, I have found a temporary solution:
. |are command blocks and (1) and (2) are the command blocks in order of activation
- |are redstonewire or comparator or repeater all in one layer or same level
i |are redstone torches used in an inverser as I believe it is called (redstone leads to block, otherside has redstone torch off of block to inverse the signal, and if needed, redstone on the block. The input will be where the button or pressureplate signal is coming from)
L |are repeaters with a delay
o |are buttons or pressure plates for a temporary signal
This circuit causes the first command block (1) to activate and if the command is successful, the right side of the circuit will light up, up to the right redstone torch which sends the signal off. The left side will be an on signal because of the button and the left redstone torch will invers the signal to off. This will cause the two off signals to permit the lower redstone torch to receive an off signal and invert it to an on signal, which will power the final command block. The first command block will continue to output an on signal if the command was a success, in which case, if the next time someone presses the button the command is still a success, the button being pressed will activate the second command block. If the command block has an on signal and the button isn't pressed or if the button is pressed but the command fails, the final command block will not receive an on signal and not activate. If the first command block is outputting an on signal, and a player comes to press the button who would normally (by them themselves pressing the button) cause the first command block to fail its command, the output would turn off, and the repeater delay on the left side would give enough time for the signal to reach the lower redstone torch as an on signal, so that when the left side singal reaches as off, nothing changes for the final command block, and the player will not activate the command block since the first command block's command was not successful.

 How do you use 2 commands with one block?
Can you use /tp and /say in the same block? If so, how? Enderderp572 00:23, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
I'm 99% sure that it is not possible to enter two separate commands into the same command block, but, using a few pieces of redstone dust, it's very easy to hookup two separate command blocks to one output signal.
(Incase you're wondering, that is supposed to be an example. :)
--Ms Juiceboxe 16:34, 3 September 2013 (UTC)
 Integer Overflow
If a correct numerical value is used as the maximum radius, it is possible to set the radius to 0 even though it's technically not allowed. This means that the radius is only one block, and no blocks around that one block.
Should this be added as trivia?
 How do you get a command block to test for a player with a certain item?
I am trying to get it so that when i hold the item, it changes the weather to clear.
- You can make one that tests for the item being used. If you set one to clear a used tool then it would output comparator signal when the item is used. Connecting it to a command block that gives you an item would be a good idea. Lennbot (talk - contributions) 17:19, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
