Board not found

This has got to be a simple one surely, but I can't work it out...

Whenever I log in to Trello (for months now) I see a message:

"Board not found.

This board may be private. If someone gave you this link, they may need to invite you to one of their boards or teams."

If I click on Boards (in the upper left quadrant) I see all my boards, so I click on the one I want and it opens. So not much of a problem, I know, but it annoys me that I cannot go straight to the board I want. Is there a simple fix, please?

@Andy Sivell can you show some screenshots of this experience, including what's in the URL? Aside from that, if the desired behavior is to go straight to a Trello board instead of going to and then selecting it, you should be able to accomplsih this by bookmarking the board URL, or use the Trello Chrome Extension. Once you add it, just go to your URL bar and type "t" then "tab" and you can start typing the name of the trello board and it will pop up. 



Hi Brittany,

Screenshots attached. As soon as I click on 'Boards' I can view and open them. It's just a minor inconvenience that I have to start with a blank screen. Your help is much appreciated. Thanks.

@Andy Sivell I'm not seeing the screenshots

Sorry. I didn't work the first time I tried.

No problem! So that's when it shows that it's not found, what's the link in the URL bar when you actually click through and do get to the board? Is it the same URL as in the screenshot above?

No. Then I get this (and a completely different URL).C.png

That's your issue then - they're different boards. Just save the URL of the second one there - where it does show the board - and then go straight to that URL and it will show the board.

That was so fundamental that it took me a little while to work out what you meant. Of course! It was staring me in the face. Thank you for pointing it out to me!

I'll try to make my next enquiry a little more challenging!

Thanks again,
