comment Lists on the same column in Trello
@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)

@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

comment How to construct URL of Trello JSON download from board URL (without using the API)
Thank you for the info... Sadly, I found that Firefox 22.0 ignores both the download request and the filename - probably due to bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=676619 (I am cross-site scripting, effectively...!). Internet Explorer 10 does treat it as a download, but ignores the suggested filename - even when surrounded by "".

As a workaround, I've made my JavaScript also write out sets of lines beginning rename and mv, which the user can execute, to get meaningful file names. It's hacky, but it works.

I also found trello-backup, which is an existing api-based mechanism that can be run with cron jobs, and is much simpler to user than the JavaScript I set up. (I haven't tested it out, though)

Oh dear. I will see if I can find the "fix adding of .json to end of URL" on the Trello dev board, to vote for it, then! Thanks for the info, anyway.

Thanks for the info. The api-based url does download from the 8-char slug, which is great. However, the output file is named <slug> rather than <id>.json. Is it possible to specify the output filename via the url, please?
