I'd like to know if I can put lists on the same vertical line in Trello. I couldn't do it but it would be pretty good for my work. Some lists don't need to be separated in different columns.

Update - 2014-07-29

The Trello design is no longer responsive, i.e. it no longer resizes as windows shrink. Trello support, in Case FC2725939, told me it is by design:

This actually is a change that we recently implemented because some Trello members were getting in to a weird state when they had their browser windows sized too small.

You don't mention what platform or browser, but the article Building trello.com for multiple devices describes how Trello is laid out, and so how you can control the layout.

So, if you create a narrow browser window, and/or increase the font size, it should eventually switch to a single column view.


Here is a series of screenshots, showing Trello in gradually narrower and narrower windows, showing how it rearranges its contents to fit the space available.

Doesn't work on Firefox 31.0. – wassup Jul 27 '14 at 17:57
@wassup You're right - and it doesn't work on IE11 either (both on Windows 7). It looks like something has changed in the design. The blog post I referenced doesn't have a comment feature, so I've sent feedback via help.trello.com/customer/portal/emails/new – Clare Macrae Jul 27 '14 at 21:50
@wassup Trello have confirmed that the design change was intentional - so I've added a note to the top of the answer - with the original text preserved for the record (and in case the behaviour ever gets reverted) – Clare Macrae Jul 29 '14 at 6:30

You can also use this Chrome extension I've recently published: Vertical Trello - Chrome Web Store
