    I need to find the username and the board name to follow their followers using the Followliker Pin bot but I'm confused by which is right, the words on the link or what it shows when you see their board and page. :S

    Here is an example board: https://uk.pinterest.com/KimKimKim/food/

    In this example, could you tell me what the username of the board creator is as well as the name of the board please?

    username: KimKimKim
    boardname: food

    It's all in the url. For example: a pinterest user can change their name on their userpage, but the username in the url stays the same. You can change a board name, but the url stays the same. So follow the url's for the exact data.

    Thanks for clearing that up!, it was confusing when the url had a different name than what showed on their page.

    I've got another question.. what if the board name has spaces in it? Do I copy the url, which turns the spaces into dashes (-), into Followliker?

    Yes, you can copy the URL with (-) because it is generated by the administration.
    You'll see the same name on the site after opening it.
