  1. Most of the problem people are having are this:

    other obsidians close by are interfering with the portal
    Make sure to build only 1 layer of obsidian
    {}{}{}{}{}{}
    {}{}{}{}{}{}
    {}{}----{}{}
    {}{}----{}{} = NO
    {}{}----{}{}
    {}{}{}{}{}{}
    {}{}{}{}{}{}

    {}{}{}{}
    {}----{}
    {}----{} = YES
    {}----{}
    {}{}{}{}

    and some people forget to use flint and steel to activate the portal, they thought making the frame will activate automatically, when you actually need flint and steel and set the middle on fire, and the portal will activate

  1. Do you have a 2x3 open area surrounded by obsidian. If you got that then you just have to set 1 of the bottom blocks on fire

  2. There are two possibilities: number one is as Gabain1993 stated, your portal may not be correctly made. Make it like this, one set of brackets representing one block of obsidian
    {}{}{}{}
    {} {}
    {} {}
    {} {}
    {}{}{}{}

    Your other but less likely problem is your client has not been updated, and therfore the portal would not work

  3. I think DuneManta means like this:

    {}{}{}{}
    {}----{}
    {}----{}
    {}----{}
    {}{}{}{}

    Where the dashes are the portal area.
