How to link portals, it’s really some basic math but a little known feature of the game to even the most experienced player. Take you portal coordinates in the over world and divide the X and Z by 8. The Y coordinate is strictly elevation and does not matter.

On the flip side, you can build a portal in the nether and link them properly by taking the nether portal coordinates and multiplying by 8 to get the over world coords.

It should be noted that the portals link math works with all versions of minecraft, no matter how old.
