Copy Board with Linked Cards

I have a 'template' board which contains cards that are linked (re: one card contains the url of another).  When I copy the template board I want the linked cards to refer to each other in the copy, not back to the template.  How do I create relative url links to cards so that the copied board cards refer to themselves (copied board) and not the template.

It seems the card links are absolute.

@Alann Demeester I implemented something similar for a client recently in Trellinator. Here's a modified version of that code that uses attachment links (the version I created had cards linked from a Checklist):

https://gist.github.com/iaindooley/3061129821e17ea1d5fb9553df83e68d

This would be installed on a "board of boards" where each time you created a card, the template board would be automatically copied (preserving members) and linked to the card you created.

Then for each card on the newly created board, links to the cards in the template board would be replaced with links to cards in the newly created board that had the same name. Since it works on name, the names would need to be unique in order to work.

You can find out more about Trellinator here:

@Alann Demeester I'm looking for the same thing. Wish there was a way to do this natively.
