Have they changed the way we join the Wikitree Project on FTDNA?

I recently had some new tests undertaken for cousins at FTDNA.  I wanted to join them to the WIkitree DNA project and some other projects I know exist.

The Wikitree project doesn't come up as a suggested project on their 'join a project' page and the search field on that page only seems to be surnames and geographical projects.  I searched for WIkitree but no results.

I found the old project search page via the FAQ's.  This time I was able to find the Wikitree project but the links on that page take me to WIkitree or GFR.

Can anyone tell me how I join the FTDNA project these days?  I have other projects I know exist that have the same problem.

Not sure if this will help you, but it can not hurt to try to join it this way....

Thanks, that worked, but surely there must be an easier way!  I now need to find the project page of the other projects.

on the top of the FTDNA page after your logged in, click on projects, then click on join a project, then you can search or look by surname...etc. It works for me to get in there, hopefully it will for you too.

Well that was what I did before, with no result.

I tried it again just now and it worked!  

Must have been a glitch.  Obviously I was too impatient!

Thanks
I think it is their website. Sometimes I have trouble on it and other days it works good.
