I got a question on you guys and maybe one of you can help me out with that issue.
I saw and know that its possible to use Trello in MAC Version of Scrivener 3 by drag and drop the URL into the program.
I tried the same with the Windows Beta Version but all the site tells me now is:
Be sure to set Options > Behaviors > Navigation to “Allow limited navigation in web pages.” URL points to a publicly accessible Trello project; you can edit it to the project or other URL of your choice.
Alternative if you’d rather not meta-refresh is to drag the browser’s URL token into Bookmarks rather than the binder, and Open in Current Editor via the context menu.
I tried all of this now.
Jerome, when I try to import your html file after following your instructions (I believe I’m following them exactly), I get an error dialog that says:
"Could Not Convert File 'P:/Trello.html'.
Error: Converter Error."
and nothing gets imported.
Within Scriv, do I actually need to be in the Research folder? (I am in the Research folder (I have it highlighted in the binder as I try to import), I’m just curious if it is absolutely necessary); and does it have to be the top level of Research or can it be a sub-folder?
Outside of Scriv, on Windows, does it matter where the html file is stored? (I would think not.)
Sure. Just so you know, L&L migrated this board’s content from phpBB earlier this year, but didn’t migrate the images, attachments and code samples that users had contributed over the previous ten. Bit of a poke in my view to the folks who made this forum what it was.
I’ve pretty much moved on to Obsidian with the Kanban plug-in. The index card metaphor was what attracted me to Scrivener in the first place, but when we add flexible card sizing, HTML, markdown reader view, CSS, scrolling lanes, dragging cards from lane to lane and board to board, the advantages of the Kanban model become clear, as you’ve found in group task management via Trello.
This is the meta-refresh code. Again, you’ll want to save this as an HTML file, replace my working sample Trello URL with the one you’ll be using, and drag the file into your project’s Research folder, making note of the Options settings discussed above. Then you should be able to get to your Trello board in a Scrivener window.
That’s not entirely true. A good number of attachments and such carried over, but some did not, on account of how phpBB changed how it addressed them internally at some point in time, and the migration script only worked with the older method.
As I’ve noted before, if you have a post you’d like to have restored, just get in touch with me and I can restore the missing data. We have all of it backed up. I’ve already fixed your prior post.
